Charts About
LH's comment on the charts: "These are copies of the actual charts we use in my own hand. That means these 'finished' sheets aren't totally complete by normal publishing standards. Most obviously, the lyrics aren't written on them. (Why rewrite them for the man who wrote them?) Sometimes there is no written melody. These are real 'working charts'. They're incomplete by design. A working band wants to be able to invent/change intros, endings, dynamic moments, who's laying out where, etc. as they develop their playing of a chart. By the time we know what we really mean to do in a piece, it is often different from what we had on paper at first and different from our recordings. So please consider these charts evidence of works in progress."

Chart Pricing: We email the charts in PDF format, so there is no shipping charge. The pricing goes as follows: $15 for a single chart, $25 for two, and if you're really gluttonous, $100 for any nine charts. The shopping cart will figure all this out for you as you add charts to the list, although the math might look funny. Trust us, it works :)

Welcome to our store!

We add new stuff all the time, so check back to see if there is anything new available. We are literally a mom-and-pop operation here, so there are no fancy creditcard forms or ordering mechanisms on this page. Strictly old-school.

ORDERING: Just to the right, you may notice a simple shopping cart. Add your items, choose your shipping destination and your email, and then click "buy." Simple, right?

PAYMENT: After having problems with checks in the post, we have decided to stick with PayPal for purchases from this site. It's faster and more reliable. You don't need a Paypal account, just a credit card. Purchase turnaround is 2-3 weeks plus shipping time.

EMAIL: We need your email address to help us keep track of orders. We won't use it for anything else, we promise. If you are interested in signing up for our mailing list, you can do so on the Contact page.

SHIPPING: We ship using the good ole' USPS. All listed prices have US shipping already included for the US, and some items require an additional international shipping charge.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: We ship orders outside the USA but if you order books or CDs there is a $11 additional shipping cost for the first book or disc, and $5 for every book or disc after that. For photos, charts and t-shirts there is no additional charge for international shipping.

CHARTS: We offer a variety of charts, in Laurence's inimitable hand, from our catalog. Please make sure to read LH's comment on the charts before ordering, it explains a lot about them. Unlike the other postable items, we email you the charts in pdf format.

*CARBON OFFSETS: Traveling with a band uses a lot of fuel and resources. Therefore, a portion of each sale from this store will be used for purchasing carbon offsets, in an attempt to defray the environmental impact of bringing the show on the road.

Pull My Daisy Chart
6/4 + 5/4 = 11/4. Any schoolkid could tell you that. But maybe school was a long time ago. Maybe it's nice to have a refresher course. 6/4 + 5/4... how does it work? How does it work?

And We Will Fly Chart
Though we were trying to pull a fast one, right? Because the handwriting is so different? Ladies and gentlemen, please allow us to present the ever-legible and delightful-to-behold notational stylings of Mr. Willie Jones III! (Now we have a race on our hands, right?) And they will fly... off the shelves. Right? Right?
