HUGE NEWS!! (read on or play the video to find out what’s going on…)
Some of you are part of the fortunate few to own a copy of the extremely rare book, “Shake Some Action: The Ultimate Power Pop Guide” by John M. Borack and published by Not Lame in 2007. It has been out of print since 2008 and virtually impossible to find a copy – anywhere.
Literally, not showing up on any web sites. Not even as an available rare book. Which means if it would show up on Amazon right now – if someone needed money for the mortgage, they’d fetch $150+.
So here is the BREAKING NEWS!
A few weeks ago, I was cleaning up and organizing boxes and boxes of LPs, CDs and tapes(yes, tapes – that’s another story for another time!) and I came across two boxes of CDs.
It shocked me. I had totally forgotten I had these.
These CDs were the 24-song bonus disc that came along with the “Shake Some Action” book. There are over 200 of these CDs.
So John and I got together and we’ve decided to find a book printer that will do a small run that will cover these CDs and make the book available to Pop Geek Heaven members who may have missed out the first time.
This is no sham, fake re-press money grab. (well, there’s no money in the music business anymore – that’s been proven quite well the last 5+ years)
I have printer all set and the CDs ready to go, obviously. However, it’s more expensive now to print these because of the small order and the unique size of the book – it’s a coffee-table sized 9″ x 9″.
Now, we could have just put these books up on various used books sites and Amazon for MUCH more money than what it will cost you right now. That is a fact. A solid one.
Pop Pioneers here at PGH deserve special treatment in all things and that is going to be a constant experience you find here. You are the first to hear of this discovery!
Here’s the final part of the story. We are taking pre-orders on these 224 copies(that was the final count) right now.
If you want to secure a copy of one of these, GO TO THIS LINK.
It is a pre-order, keep in mind – and I will ship will have the books around October 24th. They will be shipped Priority Mail in the United States and First Class Airmail for all non-US destinations.
Hey, if you’re a prospecting type, you can pick up a few, hoard ’em for a few years and reap a nice, tidy profit in the future! ;-P (Actually, I *know* some of you well enough with your Ebay and Amazon businesses that you will…)
So there you go. Cool News – and the Pop Pioneers here are the first to know.
I have no idea how fast these will go – that’s up to you, I suppose.
But, to be clear, this is not an official re-press of the book – just a (very) small micro pressing because of finding a lost stash of the CD that originally was bundled with the book.
