As we wind down, in our own slow fashion, we are thrilled to be able to go out with a bang: we are giving away a copy of the limited run FMP box set, Im Rückblick – In Retrospect. This massive set includes 12 CDs, including many previously unreleased recordings, plus a beautifully produced large-format book that illustrates and elucidates the FMP journey in words and pictures. The book includes a complete discography, tons of amazing photographs by Dagmar Gebers, and contributions from Peter Brotzmann, Ken Vandermark, Alexander von Schlippenbach, and many others. It’s Out-of-Print and fetches hundreds of dollars on Ebay.
In order to make sure that this set goes to a good home, we are raising the bar for entry. Here’s the rundown:
Anyone who purchases at least *TWO* FMP releases from the D:O Download store from today (March 17th) onward is eligible for the drawing. And the more you buy from the store, the more chances you have of winning! (We would also ask that, given the limited nature of this prize, if you already have one, it would be sporting if you refrained from entering at this time.) The closing date for purchases to enter the contest is April 1st.
To make shopping a little easier, we’ve added a number of outstanding releases to the FMP Bandcamp store. Plus there are a number of landmark titles queued up and almost ready to go. You can also now send downloads of albums as gifts. Happy hunting and good luck!
