This is a double CD - with a 12 page full colour booklet - 38 tracks in all. The track listing can be found above.
All the artists have donated, royalty-free, their track on the CD.
The cover artwork, backgrounds for the booklet and launch poster/flyer have been created by a Basingstoke artist. Free of charge.

Pre-mastering was done by Ellis Misnomer. Free again.
Robbie Fraser also assisted with the pre-mastering. Free.
Nige Rivers got the flyers done. Donated.
Raz put it in The Observer for weeks. Did a radio broadcast and plugged it. Has sent it off to be reviewed. Got a review in to The Gazette. He's also done 'one hundred percent mashed' which you can hear on his page.
Jane has arranged for the CD to be sold in shops I didn't have time to get to. Leon has got it into some places. Karl and Marc both got it in to a shop. There are 400 CDs yet to be placed - suggestions welcome.
Jaison sorted out a whacking great banner over the top of the Light Lounge. The Light Lounge also paid for adverts in The Observer.
Dizzy Blonde Productions did a fantastic job with the backline, lighting and sound at the Launch Gig. Brilliant.
