How much you need to make from each CD: Ten bucks would be nice I suppose. What's the going rate?

Details, if there is another supplier involved:

Have one master CD from the Studio from which we burn copies on our home PC. This is rather time-consuming, but I do not anticiate such popularity as to make this shortcoming an issue.

   This is my first attempt at a Studio Recording, and was certainly a learning experience for a 19th-Century sort of Musician. With very limited time and no prior studio recording experience, it came out pretty well.

Although I considered this project essentially a "Demo", I have since recieved favorable feed back from several Friends and Family Members who I have given copies to.

I have saved a few of the tracks as Mp3 files, which I could send as an E-mail attachment to anyone with the capacity to handle large files or could send one demo CD copy via the USPO for evaluation if need be.

Let me know if interested.
