Finished Product - Lost Copy Found! Mekong Pirates Compact Disc

Times were simpler, bands were funkier, and dancing the night away was standard operating procedure.

Word on the street is there are bootleg

 copies available at the Russian Market

Six year after I recorded and produced it, my mother handed me this - a surviving copy of one of only five hundred original Mekong Pirates CDs produced.  Extremely rare outside of Cambodia (and more so in these United States), here is the original artwork in all its glory.

Mekong Pirates Recording Sessions Notes Found

Cleaning up every loose end in in my boring life I made a discovery in some old files.

One that caught my eye was the actual cost to produce this recording.

I used a laptop a friend wanted to throw out, when all it needed was a new CMOS battery. 

Using Craigslist & EBay, I managed to record & produce a 13 song CD with over 500 recorded tracks using 14+ musicians for the sum of US$265.52 - yes, it's true. All happened back in the year 2010.
