SHAKE SOME ACTION - CD ONLY - original CD from the 2007 out of print book

  • our price: $11.97

Professionally replicated - comes in just a simple paper holder, though as the CD was originally bundled inside the "Shake Some Action" book back in 2007.

THIS IS ONLY ONE COPY that I tripped over earlier today as I was getting this sale ready. The fact that is here, right now, is UNUSUAL.


Well, because the CD was included with the book itself and attached and glued inside! I'm guessing these must have come from some damaged and returned books and the CDs were taken out back in 2007 or 2008....and, most importantly....

Because...this CD was never sold on its own. The CD was bundled with the original book and glued to the inside of the back cover. Because of this, there was never any art work but CDs were professionally manufactured and they are enclosed in a plastic CD cover that was originally glued into the back of the book. However, a really nice customer back in 2008 made up a PDF of art work for himself and shared with me, which I shared with the purchasers of the book later that year so they could put the CD into a jewel case and something nice. (If you are the person who did this and are seeing this - my apologies, I forgot your name - get in touch w/ me so I can thank you again!)

if you get this, please make sure you email me so I can send you this color PDF of that art work for the CD: Put "Shake Some Action PDF" in the subject line, please.


NEWS ON THE BOOK: Sometime in 2014, there WILL BE a SMALL REPRINTING of the long, out-of-print and terribly rare "Shake Some Action: The Ultimate Power Pop Guide" book. It's wicked expensive to print small runs of an oddly measured book(it is 8" X 8") so I need hit about 50 copies to make it reasonable. If you are interested in being notified of this reprint, let me know at: I'm about half-way there presently so it's not too far off. :-)
