Music CD's and Downloads
Do you ship outside the USA?
Yes. We ship all over the world.
How long does it take?
Please allow 2-5 business days. At times less, at times a little more. Orders are shipped the same day. International orders arrive 5-7 days after shipping and may take as much as 10 days on rare occasion.
Why is shipping and handling so expensive?
Shipping and handling costs include domestic and international 1st class postage rates as well as shipping materials. Not to mention processing by real live humans here at world headquarters. Every calculation is based on Einstein's theory of relativity E=mc2
My friend lives off the grid in a bunker far from town and other people- Will you take a check in the mail for a CD order?
First of all, your friend is a champion and we're all envious here at HQ. Please tell your friend Yes! $15.00 will cover the CD and shipping is $5 up to a quantity of 2. Make the check with sufficient funds payable to Jeff Black and send it to: Jeff Black/Lotos Nile Music, P.O. Box 90245, Nashville, TN 37209.
Is there a discount on bulk orders? I have a dream of being a Jeff Black/Lotos Nile Music distributor.
Send us a message through the Connect page or the form below. We do offer discounts and have worked with some exceptional merchants. Indie and storefront distributors are encouraged to contact Lotos Nile Music for Special Pricing. Thanks!
I ordered the wrong item - what do I do?
Don't open it. Send it back and we'll fix you up. If It's opened then check your conscience. Really, every album is pretty good so you can't lose. Seriously, we'll make it right if you're cool.
Is Jeff's music available in Vinyl?
Apparently. Our detectives have found that through some sort of top secret deal that you can order Tin Lily as custom made 7" singles or the complete album from Bluerose Records out of Germany.
We've tried contacting them and haven't heard back yet. We think it's through Dualtone who has the licensing on that title until summer 2012. Sounds cool. Let us know if you get one.
I don't have iTunes. How do I download Jeff's music?
Our friends at Bandcamp have figured out the quandry of format. Through any album link on this site you can find Jeff's music is available in MP3 (320, VBR), Ogg Vorbis, Apple Lossless, FLAC and AAC (aka .m4a or iTunes store format)
Ethics and the sorting out
Why should I buy directly from the artist?
That age old question can only be answered by a spiritual quest or a pilgrimage to another dimension.
I can buy Jeff's albums cheaper at Amazon and digital downloads cheaper at iTunes. What should I do?
We can't compete with volume. We can only hope you'll buy Jeff's digital files and CD's directly through this site. Every dime in around here goes towards the next album coming out. See Einstein's theory of relativity E=mc2
How do I get an autographed CD?
Send us a message through the form below or the Connect page. That's easy and Jeff would be honored.
Rhyme and Meter
What comes first, the words or the music?
That's best described in Jeff's own words - "it starts with a mirage and then coffee. Use pencils and unlined paper. Always carry a shovel and a flashlight. Nothing ever comes first, it's always everything, constantly, all the time. The starting and the beginning, not the waiting, is the hardest part."
