This from the man himself :" the box-set is at the pressing house and should be released soon (I believe within a couple of weeks)".

Heuuhhheeeehhhhh expensive?????...... where are you from my friend... :o €34,90 is damn cheap in my book (country) for
a 4cd boxset... FYG, yesterday i bought a copy of the new Pulsar album 'Memory Ashes' for €. 19,99 and that's just 1 disc
with 45 minutes of music. In this case you get 4 discs with about 75 minutes on each disc and a lavish booklet so in my case
this boxset is well worth it's money! :)

This debate... again! :roll: :P

This time, I come with some facts:

Here is the list of the CD's and DVD's that I've bought in the last 8 months... prices are in CAN $ (including taxes, shipping, handling), converted in Euros at today's exchange rate.

Steve Hackett - Spectral mornings [DVD] 24.45 $ on Amazon ( 17.48 € )

Big Big Train - The underfall yard 9.85 $ on Band website ( 7.04 € )

Cheese is not my cup of tea, so to speak, but I do know that where I usually buy my foodstuff, "3.50€ for 100g of Old Amsterdam" would be a fantastic bargain (I reckon it normally costs about twice as much), and if I quoted the price of beer in Finland, you wouldn't believe it.

IMPORTANT - MUSIC DOWNLOADERS TAKE NOTE!

The ENTIRE project (4 CDs worth of great music/loving tributes, including my band [Supernal Endgame]'s rendition of "The Flower King") can be purchased (for a limited time, I'm sure) at Amazon MP3 (USA) for $17.98 (vs. $49.99 on iTunes)!

Here's the link for anyone who may be interested: http://www.amazon.com/Flower-Full-Stars ... 4&sr=301-1 ... !

Also, if you're on the fence about investing in "A Flower Full of Stars," you can listen to extended samples (1:30 per track) via iTunes - that should be enough to give you a sense of the project.

Peace,
Rob

I hate to curb your entrepreneuring enthusiasm, wowie, but it sounds like you don't have first hand experience of Finnish Customs. It needn't be Limburger for these nosey parkers to smell the proverbial rat, and you'd find yourself in the clink, sans your precious cargo, before you could even contemplate saying "Camembert". As for smuggling beer to Finland, that is even more futile than bringing coals to Newcastle (or sand to Sahara, as the equivalent Finnish expression goes) - there's plenty of the stuff around and, for some reason, we happily pay ridiculous sums of money to get it.

Thank you, Chessman - I take your words as a compliment of the highest degree. To tell you the truth, this is something that has been troubling me for most of my life. I, too, think I'd made a perfect English gentleman, even though I'm born and bred Finnish. For some reason, I find even some of the English eccentricities more intelligible than many of the ordinary features in Finnish everyday life. So, in short, no, I'm not. (I leave it to you to decide whether it's sure or English.)

There's nothing wrong with a chilled Lapin Kulta.... :) although i learned last summer when passing through Muonio that Laps don't want to sell it/drink it
any longer as it seems the brewery was sold to some major company and it lost all connections with Lapland this way... is this true...?? as i had to
drink Karhu instead ;)

Lapin Kulta (also affectionately known as 'reindeer pee') was originally brewed by a small local brewery in Tornio, Lapland. Hartwall, one of the biggest Finnish breweries bought it in 1980. From 2002 onwards Hartwall was owned by Scottish & Newcastle which - as you undoubtedly know - was jointly acquired by Heineken and Carslberg in 2008. I don't think these corporate machinations have necessarily anything to do with Laplanders' unwillingness to drink Lapin Kulta - I believe the real clincher for the Lapps was Hartwall's decision to close their Tornio brewery in 2010 and move the production of this time-honoured brand to their Lahti facility. It was this brusque decision that severed Lapin Kulta's links to Lappland - only the name remains.

..even Roine seems to like it! :)

Yes I've heard it - Once ....
and it's quite entertaining - some surprises- re-arranges, odd choice
of instrumentation.

't was to me both a bit flattering and a bit touching
that so many put so much work into this project.

To hear others interpret your songs is a bit bizarre but also open up
my ears/eyes to the fact
that some tunes are almost hit -material.

Thanx to everyone - well done.

I still haven't decided if we will carry it in the FlowerKings webshop
- mostly due to the fact it's a bit expensive
but also that it is a plastic box -and I fear shipping it may cause
breakage that we're not interested in handling.
But you can definitely get it at Jonas webshop - and his price is
unbeatable 25 euro + shipping .

Google translates this as: "Now it's time for the first strolls in the evening ..." but I suppose it's "Now it's time for the first ballad of the evening ..."

Where does this come from?

It's for some reason the only line Jonas can speak in Dutch... he learned it somewhere in the distand past when he was
still playing 'dance orchestra's' or in the back-up band of Adolf the sealion on a cruise-ferry... anyway he still likes to
practice it on every Dutch concert he does with TFK, Karmakanic or even AoM.. ;) So..... now you all know!! :lol:
