There are a lot of good UNUN tracks on the Vill. CD.

Is UNUN allowed to post some of those tracks even if I can't contact the artist?

I would say post a 60 second sample, then a link to either buy or purchase the track from i-tunes etc.

Don't post Yan Vagh's track though, its subject to copywright as it was co-written with another artist.

maybe it would be best to try to contact those particular artists to see if they have some new material to offer...
do you have contact info for;
-Deniz Atalay
-Vassilis Ketentzoglou
-Sandor Szabo
?

...another questions - How many copies of Village were printed? And, for your experience now with seeing how well they are "moving", how many copies would you recommend printing of the UNUN compilation, or do you think these days it is even worth printing hard copies - in favour of an MP3 (shit) Album? (in order not to lose money and waste plastic)

All contacts are in the artist's section.

Economics looked correct for a 1000 print run, but I still have 600 (ish) so its running at quite a loss considering 200+ went promotional.

The best option is to do what the guys at GtrOblq have done, produce the CD, then supply it to an on-demand manufacturer, such as www.kunaki.com that way if you just want one, you get one, ten you get ten etc.. Each artist goes and buys the number they need.

There are a few things to sort before manufacture, performing rights, legal contracts, bar-code for the album, electronic distribution etc. Might be best on a direct e-mail rather than discuss on the board.

Jewel or paper case, it doesn't matter for me. It could be paper to keep the costs low. Besides, jewel cases add a lot to the package weight when shipping, pushing the shipping costs up. And they have a tendancy to break during shipping.
