And what to think of this 'whopper' announcement (also from a Polish webshop)

a 3CD release from Emmens & Heij

Announcement also found on Gert Emmens website.

Yes, Gert also mentioned it on FB. Nice artwork. Both Gert and Ruud are at E-Day to sell their CDs and giving autographs.

Great name and cover photo. Hoping for a Bandcamp or MusicZeit release.

A triple CD! WOW! Really looking forward to this one.

BTW, Gert got a lot of stick on here a while back, but his last album 'Stories from Floating Worlds - 1" I thought was really rather good - definitely a new sound palate and well worth a listen.

I believe it's high time I gave some information Smile
Indeed Galaxis is a 3CD that will be released on E-Day, where we have a
stall. Only on that day it will be sold for 25 Euro, instead of 28 Euro.

Because this year it is 15 years (how time flies) that Gert and I work
together and this being our 10th release, we wanted to do a one time special
release. It's a 3CD digi pack format with a 12 page booklet which includes a
timeline, several photos and a discography. It's a limited edition of 300
copies. We are considering a download as well, but probably a little later.
It's obvious that we prefer to sell some CD copies first,
a production like this in a limited quantity of 300 copies is quite expensive to produce.
Thanks for your interest!

Another one that I'm very much looking forward to hearing...
More than happy to pay 28 Euro... Wink

I have checked Gert's website.

There's still only an announcement

Is the pre-order with just an e-mail?

International pre-orders can already be done with Paypal, even though it's still not visible on the webshop (will be in a few days).

Woon je in Nederland dan kan je als alternatief voor Paypal een e-mail sturen naar gert.emmens@zonnet.nl met je bestelling.

An important note! Prices of the Emmens&Heij CD's we sell through the Gert Emmens website are *without* shipping cost! It happened a few times that a buyer forgot to ask about shipping cost and didn't add any.

My copy arrived today. Just started to listen to it. This will take some time ...

So far it sounded again very nice.

Chaps - This album is really very good! It is difficult to fill 3 CDs at a time with worthwhile tracks, but I think this is some of the best work you two have done together. The whole concept does have a very "space" music theme, which works well over the entire album. Great sequencing and I am even enjoying the ambient tracks!

I'll second that Daniel.

Out of the 16 new releases I've purchased so far this year,
Galaxis is currently my number 1.

To be able to maintain such high quality for over 3 hours,
is indeed an impressive achievement...

We're still early in 2018,
and there will likely be many more new albums released,
but I wouldn't be in the least bit surprised if Galaxis ends up being my own personal favourite of 2018... Wink

Thanks everyone for the kind comments. It was a quite daring release for us, not knowing if people would like three CD's of Emmens&Heij at once Smile
But now that we are almost sold out, and had very positive feedback, I am glad we took the gamble.

I'm also glad you both took that gamble Ruud Very Happy

In this day and age it's nice to still be able to purchase a complete package like this
with artwork, booklet, and of course the discs, directly from the guys making it. Long may that continue.... Wink

Thanks! It's good to know that there is still interest in special releases from artists of much lesser name and fame.

Galaxis is now sold out. Some dealers may still have a few copies. So please contact one of the dealers mentioned on the gertemmens.com website (links) if you still want a copy. It is not possible any more to order directly from us.

Glad to hear you're sold them all Ruud. Very Happy

I can only imagine what it would have cost to manufacture/produce even a limited run of 300 Shocked
