i think the problem was done to the fact that a lot of hawkwinds hardcore
fanbase are not online so probably didnt even know about the chart trek
campaign. ALso does anyone know how many singles you need to sell to break
the top forty?

Also do any of us know the potential number of sales hawkwind should expect
for releasing a cd single or album? Does voiceprint release its sales
figures for hawkwinds previous cd's on their label?
