Thanks Jack, but i'm still going to bow to the your skill and experience 99.9% of the time.
And would recommend that the OP do the same. :)

And thanks Sam. :)

Ha you know I don't think you're wrong - I think selling at gigs is one of the only ways an unsigned band can actually sell records. And in that context, people will obviously pay more for an album than they will a single. There is a caveat to this, that being that the viability of this depends on the sort of people that come to gigs...it's easier if they've seen a CD before, and remember paying for them in the past.

Indeed, for us, that's our core demographic but may be a completely different cup of tea for the OP.

I once got band tea-towels made, thinking they'd be cheaper than T-shirts, and one size fits all.

Not one of my more lucrative commercial ventures.

Though apparently David Ford's "Wash up you miserable f***" tea towels went down a storm.
