Artwork by Karen Luke FildesAfter six long years, Got to Fly has returned on CD!

Got to Fly is my second album from 2008, produced by Quantum Mechanix and inspired by Firefly and Battlestar Galactica.  Although young and raw and eclectic, it remains one of my fans’ favorite records, and I sing songs from it most every night on tour.

The first printing was a limited edition of 1000 signed and numbered discs, and those have been sold out for years.  But this November, by your many many requests, there will be a new CD in a digipak, with all new artwork by Karen Luke Fildes (yup, my Mom)!  They’re not in fancy jewel cases, it’s a little more reserved packaging than the limited edition, but I am sure you’ll enjoy it.  The CD is $12.95 plus S&H.

The new CD’s should ship in time for the holidays for the US and Canada (currently estimating a ship date right after Thanksgiving weekend).  If you’re overseas or in Canada and want priority shipping just in case, contact me at marian@mariancall.com and I’ll send you a special invoice, we’re happy to accommodate you and we’ll ship at cost.

And if you’ve already purchased the digital album and it’s really a financial hardship for you to get the CD but you reeeeeally want it, I dig. Email me at marian@mariancall.com and I can get it for you at a discount.  I know a guy.

If you already love Got to Fly, have a listen again, and tell a friend about this good little record that could!
