Great track Bill, and for such a deserving cause.

PS don't know if this will save anyone any time, but I thought I'd download for the song in high quality "loss-less" FLAC format and then look for a free file convertor. I found one that works fine at converting the file to WAV (for burning on CD) or - don't listen Bill - to MP3 (for my iPod). The software was called FreeRip MP3 3.2 and can be downloaded from the trustworthy site www.cnet.com. Seems fine to my ears, but if anyone knows of a better free convertor they could add a comment on this thread.

Sounds good. I use Winamp to play FLACs and it converts to WAV as well :)
There is of course the original basic FLAC encoder/decoder from the 'home' of FLAC - http://flac.sourceforge.net/

Thanks guys for the comments on FLAC, guys.

I suddenly realise I've run the risk of changing the topic of this thread into a techie discussion, which would not be right.

So, I apologise for the diversion.

Please keep posting about the track and Sara's Hope.

Neill

I agree! Also a free cover image and a poster with every download - cool!

Hi everyone
This has been a very special week for our family .Saturday marked Sara`s 25 th birthday and we held our annual charity ball .It was an absolutely magical night .Bill and Emi were invited as guest of honour ,sadly this was not possible due to Emi remaining in Japan to be with her mum - Emi - you are always in our thoughts
Our good friend Martin Bostock came along as our official photographer and did a sterling job - It was also great to see Gary Nichol and his family
The night raised in excess of £17,000 :D
The icing on the cake was the release of this wonderful track "Rocket to the Moon" - I have just looked at the musiczeit website and sales are going well - so thanks to everyone who has already downloaded this special track
A million thanks to Bill for his support - his warmth and loyalty has really touched our family and through Bill`s downloads,fund raising at the Nelsonica events and from individual donations and auctions we are over the moon that Bill and you guys have raised over £5,000 for Sara`s charity to date - this is FANTASTIC :D
We would also like to thank the Nelsonica team and our good friend Dave Graham for once again designing the sleeve for Rocket to the Moon

Kindest regards
Ged and Julie xx


That's great news, Ged, and I'm thrilled the ball was, yet again, a roaring success. Love to you all.......Angie xx

Just got back from a week in Scotland to find out this news. Have just downloaded the new song and will have a listen later today.

To Ged and his family, may I wish you continued success with the fund raising for Sara's Hope Foundation. One day I'm sure your goal will be achieved. You certainly deserve to.

All the best,

Mick
