Rocketship‘s debut full-length, A Certain Smile, A Certain Sadness, has been out-of-print for over a decade. Nonstop Co-op, however, is going to change that with your help. Let’s all come together and put Rocketship’s A Certain Smile, A Certain Sadness back out on vinyl.
Play Rocketship’s A Certain Smile, A Certain Sadness:
In addition to the LP rerelease, we’ve put together some things about which we’re super-excited to encourage people to help out.
Nonstop Co-op is proud to offer two previously unreleased Rocketship songs from the 90s for lossless digital download: “You Make Me Happy In My Sorrow” and “I Don’t Know If I’ll Love You Tomorrow”. These two remixed and remastered tracks are exclusively available through the A Certain Smile, A Certain Sadness LP reissue Kickstarter, and were formerly only found on a Rocketship demo cassette from 1994, “the red tape”.
Nonstop Co-op is also pleased to offer, as well, these very cool “Hey, Hey Girl” pins, based on the artwork for Rocketship’s first 7″ record:
We’ve also made “mix-tape” reproductions of the art from all of Rocketship’s releases, to be delivered to your door in a sleeve hand-numbered by Dusty, and including a lossless digital download of Rocketship’s entire discography.
People who choose the LP as their Kickstarter reward will receive their copy of A Certain Smile, A Certain Sadness hand-numbered by Dusty.
Nonstop Co-op will print Rocketship’s record on vinyl in the U.S. at Cascade Record Printing in the band’s home state of Oregon. 500 copies which mimic the original — black vinyl, white sleeve, full-color jacket and label — will cost about $2,500. Shipping in the U.S. for all 500 copies will be an additional $2500, more or less. As well, Kickstarter and credit card processing fees can run up to an additional 10%, so Nonstop is setting our goal at $5,500.
If we meet our goal, additional money raised could go to making the re-release more “fancy”, i.e. colored vinyl, 180 gram vinyl, and full-color sleeves or inserts, if desired by fans.
