How to get the tunes!

1. Donate to a participating trail group and get a real CD in a bifold jacket. Listen to crappy songs in high-quality surround-sound!

2. Download the album as a ZIP file in MP3 format. Lesser quality, but free. Download CD as zip file in mp3 format

3. Pick individual songs by listening to them on-line, then download only those you want. Go back to the main "Goodies" options page.


Information for trail fundraisers!

The CD is professionally produced, inserted into a bi-fold jacket with a semi-flexible disc-mounting station made of recycled plastic. The bi-fold comes in an outer protective plastic sleeve. CDs can be provided in any quantity.

Collecting your donations
That's up to you. We don't specify a "price" for the CD. You can set a donation amount per CD, or leave it open-ended. The back of the CD jacket has the ISBN barcode for the product, so the CD can be rung up in bike shops as a sale. (Expect the bike shop to deduct its transaction and handling costs.) 

Bruce would like you to reimburse him for the production cost of the CDs you distribute. As of January 2019, this cost is $1.85 per CD. For large quantities or custom orders, please plan to cover these costs up-front.

Custom packaging
The CD and its jacket can be customized with your trail foundation's logo and other information, but this requires a minimum order of 100 CDs and will have a delivery time of around 3 weeks.

Not that anyone cares:  

Bruce Argyle started as a finger-picking rhythm guitarist and singer in his teens, doing mostly folk rock and ballads. After not becoming a star, he switched to bass guitar and harmony vocals -- which paid for college, medical school, a wedding and a first kid.

Then the guitar gathered dust in the closet for 40 years while Bruce was a respectable citizen with a job. Now, although the voice is shot and the fingers are clumsy, the "rock star" is back on stage.

Bruce does all the parts for these songs. Vocals, harmony, bass, rhythm, lead guitar, and percussion. He records the tracks in his basement and acts as his own sound engineer for the mix. He works on a song until he gets bored, which doesn't take long, then he calls the tune "done" even if it's still a little raw. But the songs are free, and they're not absolutely horrible.
