    The Strathspeyer's CD - Mix and Match

    We have hopefully now got a band to record the CD of generic music which was
    the subject of a thread earlier in the year.  We hope to record in August,
    and release in October (the MCPS licencing can take quite a while to come
    through sometimes).
    There were enough requests to make about 4 CDs, so I have picked out the
    most popular and also tried to make it a CD that people will want to listen
    I would also like to know how many people would be likely to buy one (not a
    commitment) so that we can judge how many copies to make, as we expect it to
    be relatively small numbers it will probably sell at about 16.00 - 17.00 GBP
    in order to cover the costs.
    1) Does it look like a good variety?
    2) Is it right for most medleys to be strathspey/reel, should there be a
    strathspey/jig, and should they all start with the strathspey or should some
    start quicktime?
    3) Is there anything obvious missing?
    4) How many copies do you think will sell in your area?
    5) Would you be interested in acting as a distributor in your area and
    making some money either for yourself, your group or a charity? (The more
    that are sold, the less each one will cost).
