What record did Portnoy set? I'm sure whatever it is, Fred and Steve could do it blindfolded with their hands tied behind their backs, though!

That's an interesting thought, but that must be awful expensive lol...


Why not a commemorative Chronometree 8-track?

:P
That would definitely go well with the theme

:P

I might buy three of them...

GH Sales

I'll start off by saying that I don't know how uncomfortable or open GH is to giving sales information, and if you are then feel free to delete this topic, but I've always been really curious. How much does an album like, say, The Inconsolable Secret sell compared to an album by a prog artist like D...

Vinyl?

Now, I can easily understand why this hasn't been done, and why it probably never will be, but is there any possibility of a special edition Glass Hammer album on vinyl? I'm sure there is a market for such a release, especially within the prog community, but I can see how the excessive cost of produ...

Thanks for the info, I can't wait to check it out! Christmas seem ever so far away now (I already asked for it as a gift ahead of time, so now I can't buy it without the possibility of duplicating a purchase)... D= Anyways, I'm also excited to see what kind of bonuses are on the other disc, but I gu...

So is it a "mostly" true story about yourself, a friend, or (more specifically) a friend named Tom. Details, I demand details! Oh, and one more question, who is that in the pictures in the booklet? (Those pictures were really the icing on the cake of the originality and hilarity of it all) =) PS Bet...

I know I personally love your Chronometree to The Inconsolable Secret sound, but I am nonetheless really pumped for TIS Revisited! But, I am really curious as to how the actual CD is going to be packaged and such. Is the album art going to be the same, a redone version of the same, or completely new...

Rich Williams

Rich Williams? Hey, so I was wondering, how exactly did Glass Hammer hook up with Rich Williams for Portrait at NF. The first time I listened to the album, I actually believed what you said about "seeing that guy hanging around outside." ... ... ... ... ... ...I'm so gullible... Anywho, yeah, so did...

Re: Glass Hammer Special Edition Adventure Pack

I've been perusing the store recently, and I know for sure that I will be buying this by holiday season this year, but I'm still wondering what exactly is in the bundle. I see what is listed, but what exactly IS the companion story, and the "making of?" (phew, my last post for tonight, I've been on...

Agreed! I love Suzie's vocals on it especially... Fred really nails the piano parts too! Yeah, I'd have to say, I never would have envisioned myself listening to music, much less rock music, with any lead female vocalists, but Glass Hammer, and Suzie especially, has completely changed my view. Sout...

So how did it all come to be?

For as long as I've known the concept behind the album I've always wondered, how exactly did such an off-the-wall idea for a concept album bubble up in someone's head. Even more specifically, who's bubbling head was it exactly that came up with the idea?

Is there any chance of super high resolution versions of all cover art? Perhaps as exclusive registration content. I feel as though every GH album deserves some desktop love, and this would be the easiest way to make them all available.

Is this album an iTunes exclusive now, or is there a way to purchase a tangible copy? I remember seeing it, but I think I missed the boat! ;'(
