DATA

This is Shellac’s fifth LP. Recording took place sporadically over the past few years at Steve’s ELECTRICAL AUDIO studios in Chicago. The record was mastered by Steve Rooke at ABBEY ROAD. There is no comma in ‘Dude Incredible'; like Sir Duke or King Friday, for example.

PACKAGING

Both the CD and LP version of Dude Incredible come packaged in a chipboard album jacket with two high gloss, full color monkeys on the front cover. The LP includes a CD of the full album.

QC

Audio quality is paramount, as always, with Shellac. The LP was mastered entirely in the analog domain, using the DMM (Direct Metal Mastering) process. The LPs are being manufactured at RTI in Camarillo, CA, using their HQ-180 system. The pressings are 180 gram audiophile quality.

PROMOTION

Other than the informational sheet you hold in your hand (or virtual hand), this record will have no formal promotion. There will be no advertisements, no press or radio promotion, no e-promotion, no promotional or review copies, no promotional gimmick items, and otherwise no free lunch.

TOURING

The band will continue to play shows or tour at the same sporadic and relaxed pace as always. There is no correlation between shows and record releases.

THE IPODS

Dude Incredible will be available for digital download purchases in formats including full-bandwidth 24-bit files.

There you have it.
