SKIPPING DISCS CELEBRATES ITS FIFTH ANNIVERSARY...

...by going out of business (almost).

MAY 2005

LABEL OF THE MONTH

Plug In Music has selected Skipping Discs as its featured label of the month. Read their interview with our founder and owner.



WHAT A LONG STRANGE TRIP IT'S BEEN

Thanks to a last-minute surge of sales, we were able to renew our domain name for another year and now this site will be up until at least March 20, 2008. What this means is that the CD sales part of our business will remain (so we can unload our inventory) but we are no longer planning on releasing any new material in the foreseeable future.

Our CDs are still available at going-out-of-business rock-bottom prices. Get 'em while they last or you may soon have to look for them on eBay and pay huge, inflated prices since they are destined to become collector's items.

We want to thank all of the bands and artists who have graciously appeared on our releases in exchange for pitifully small royalty payments (Don't worry. If I owe you any, you'll get them sometime soon I hope.), all of the other bands and artists who submitted tracks for our now never-to-be-released compilations, all of the retail outlets and distributors who agreed to carry our CDs on consignment, and especially all of the music lovers from around the world who recognized something special (or a least a little different) in what our micro-label was trying to accomplish and purchased our CDs.

DIFFERENT FOR GIRLS
Women Artists and Female-Fronted Bands
Cover Joe Jackson
SOLD OUT!

"I remain hugely pleased and flattered that it exists."
— Joe Jackson

"Just about every track on Different for Girls is a winner." (B+)
— Devin Grant, The Post and Courier, Charleston, SC

"Different for Girls is an enjoyable and consistent tribute to a brilliant, underrated songwriter and these 14 interpretations should make him proud. Each track sparkles on a unique facet of Jackson's work."
— Michelle Shocked

"Overall this is a good and thoroughly enjoyable album."
— Jamie Field and Russ Elliot, musicaldiscoveries.com

"Different for Girls turns Joe Jackson's best tunes on their head with gender-bending takes that manage to bring out the sweet (in the title track), the rawk ('Look Sharp!'), the glitter ('Steppin' Out'), and the agony ('Breaking Us in Two') that made Jackson one of the eighties' best, and most memorable, songwriters."
— Robin Aigner

"Once again you have put together an extraordinary disc. An excellent mix of Mr. Jackson's finer moments and each selection does them justice... Congrats on another successful project!"
— Bill Morse, Music Director, WRBC
    Bates College, Lewiston, ME

Bluegrass Artists Perform Disco Hits

"Hilarious and intriguing ... off-the-wall originality."

"This is perhaps the best that disco has sounded in decades."
— Jason Feifer, Ink 19

"Besides having the best name for a cover album ever, Saturday Night Hay Fever features nine great examples of what happens when you take away Travolta's white suit, and replace it with bib overalls."
— Devin Grant, The Post and Courier, Charleston, SC
