Reed Martin - Old Time Banjo CD. Some welcome news, a limited number (140) of our great friend Reed Martin's fantastic cd, "Old Time Banjo" (1998, out of print) will be available on a first come, first serve basis in about a week. We had a really good visit with Reed at our house today, played a bunch of fiddle tunes together, and ended up with the last batch of Reed's cds to help distribute for Reed, as Reed's family just found another box.... My son Russ and I will split them up and either ship them from PA or TN depending on where they need to go. It will probably cost about $16 plus shipping. It has almost an hour of music, 37 tunes, and a 20 page booklet with information on all of the tunes and tuning, it's a treasure. Depending on how this is received, it may or may not be reprinted, this is kind of a test run, so this may be the last batch available. I will say that there are a number of good friends and family that (including Don Anderson who recorded it) who are on board to try and keep it in print if it makes sense. More info in a week or so. Thanks.

I’ve had mine for years. You won’t find better clawhammer and old-time fingerstyle to listen to or learn from.

Thanks for doing this! And I hope he's doing well. I'd like to buy one cd, please. Where can I send my information to purchase, and how?
Cheers, Mark

Thanks, this is good news. Reed needs to be heard. His jokes, stories and quips would make a great CD too, but they are usually in the moment things.

I'll be watching for this one, lost my copy in a move years ago and have been looking ever since!

Would it be feasible to also put the album on iTunes and/or Bandcamp? These platforms would take a cut, but there’d be no other distribution costs. I’ve pretty much moved on from records and CDs, and just buy music digitally (less stuff, greater flexibility). I no longer have a CD player even!

For those who have asked about availability of Reed's cd digitally, all I can say at this point is we'll see. It may be a possibility sometime in the future. For now, we are just going to make the remaining cd's (with its 20 page mini booklet) available for those who have been seeking one until they run out. If there is sufficient interest, Reed's family and friends may be able to keep it in distribution. We are sorting through payment and postal/shipping options (including possible overseas), and I'll make another post as soon as we have that all figured out and buttoned up. Thanks for all of your interest, much appreciated! Also, we just had a great visit with Reed a week ago, played tunes for quite a bit, and just realized that today is his birthday! Glenn C.

I have had a list going from people who are interested, including Banjo Hangout, and the two main clawhammer groups on Facebook to make sure those who are really interested get one. Unfortunately, one of those groups asked me to take the posting down because it violated their rules about selling things (which I did although I was only trying to make an announcement that it would be available soon, and confused me a little as there were other announcements about online paid concerts, lessons, etc...). As a result, I lost the names of those from that group who had expressed interest. Hopefully some of you who frequent those can help spread the word when we are ready. I have been out of state for a bit assisting family with a move, and when I return will try to get the cd thing distribution worked out. I understand many have moved on from cds, but at the moment this is the only option. The other real value of this cd is the incredible booklet included with it. Thanks again for the interest. Glenn

Hope I'm your list Glenn. I was the forth person to reply on BHO in this thread and I'd definitely like to buy a copy.
Thanks! banjohangout.org/my/GSCarson
