After Hours Ordinary Hero A Season in Methven Our Host Send Me Mail



If you purchase the shrinkwrapped version of "Ordinary Hero", you get a CDExtra! disc that features extra-cool digital content, including:
  • a Flash introduction (which requires Macromedia Flash Player version 5.0 or higher)
  • lyrics to all the songs
  • notes on the recording technologies and techniques I used to record the album
  • biographies of all the musicians whose work appears on the CD
  • MP3s of all the songs, as well as alternate mixes of several tracks (which all require you to have an MP3 player installed and configured) and
  • a photo gallery
You also get better-quality CD audio than is possible with the downloadable version, because there's no loss of audio detail (unlike MP3s which lose some audio quality in the compression process). And you get a 4-page booklet, too. (The downloadable version has only a 2-page booklet. So the shrinkwrapped version is twice as good.)

But wait, there's more! For the first 1,000 purchasers, I'll autograph your copy with a personal message to you.

If that sounds like a good deal to you, there are a couple of ways you can pay for your CD. The easiest is via Paypal (but it will cost you an extra $0.66 in Paypal service fees). Just answer two questions and click the "Buy Now" button:

Do you want me to autograph your CD? (Autographing breaks shrinkwrap.)
Do you want to be on my mailing list? (Spam-free, I promise.)

The second-easiest is by sending a check or money order (you could send cash, instead - but it's probably not a good idea) for $15.50 in U.S. dollars (that's 12.50 for the CD, plus $3.00 shipping and handling) to me at:


    Thom Stark
    807 E. Fourth Street
    Chillicothe, OH 45601-3532

If you're a California resident, you'll also have to add 97 cents sales tax per copy.

I've created a handy form in the popular ASCII text format. Just print it out (you Macintosh folks should make sure you're using a fixed-space font to print it with, or the formatting will get all messed up), fill it in and send it to the address listed at the bottom of the page - and presto! - in a little while you'll have your very own copy of "Ordinary Hero".

If you're ordering by mail, please be patient. First your order has to get to me, then your check has to clear (which is not an issue for money orders), and then your CD has to make it back to you via the United States Postal Service. That process could take up to 6 weeks - although it probably won't.

If you're ordering from outside the USA, please contact me to determine shipping costs BEFORE you place your order.

Thanks for your support!
