Mystra is beyond excited to be putting out the Susan Alcorn Evening Tales lp(!) We strongly doubt there ever will be a record in history that is anything like it...how could there!) A friend of ours was telling us a story recently about the first moon orbit...his eyes were wide...and he talked slowly...did you know... that when the first astronauts circled behind the moon.... they started hearing super crazy noises?? piercing sounds and strange reverb style effects and stuff... all coming from the planet Saturn(!) So cool...most have scared those astronauts(!) Its interesting...how no one seems to talk about this phenomenon...sounds emitted from a not too distant planet...there are so many mysteries still...(!)The beautiful music made by Susan Alcorn is one of them. Unique, amazing, and mysterious are just a few of the terms associated with her recordings...Why she is not better known/talked about is just part of the big mystery. Some in the know folks love her for sure...like us...but still(!) Maybe she REALLY IS too good for this world...Maybe she should play for the folks on Saturn instead...(?) And YES.. maybe there IS a similar quality to her sound...something a bit Saturn-like..with a outer space quality (A different Saturn than Sun-Ra? or maybe not...?) - Mystra.
After nearly a decade of false starts, multiple game plans veering off the rails, and a handful of shattered hopes and/or dreams, the odyssey is finally complete—the new Fusetron site is here.
This is the first phase of a multipart rollout that will span the next few months: the currently browsable stock includes miscellaneous new releases from the past 8+ months (we have a lot of catching up to do), plus approximately a third of our backstock. Note that we’ve reduced/slashed prices on many titles and will continue to do so in order to make room for new stock. We’ll also be expanding / tweaking / improving / debugging the site itself (for example, we still have work to do on the automated international postage system, not to mention the inevitable inventory discrepancies that come with transferring an ancient and massive database to a new system).
Over the next few months, as we take inventory, clean house, and delve into our storage, we will be uploading thousands of additional items, gradually, on a near-daily basis. This will include the majority of the LPs, as well as many titles, in all formats, once thought long-gone. Many currently “sold out” items are likely to resurface.
Finally, once our general backstock is up (probably in the next two or three months) we’ll begin making our extensive stockpile of rarities available online for the first time: tons of random out-of-print titles, "deadstock," warehouse finds, secondhand collectibles, etc., accumulated over the past few decades.
Frequent/returning customers will be getting early access to these items. Details to follow on how this will work (a priority mailing list? a 'frequent flyer'-like program?), but it will not be based on dollars spent. We want to reward those who consistently support us, especially in the discogs marketplace era (to those who show up trying to poach five copies of a one-off rarity, and nothing else, ever… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ).
So—we suggest you take some time to dig through the site—even we’ve been surprised by what’s been turning up, and there’s much more to come.
