    UPDATE July 1 2014:
    There are four tapes left after Sled Island! They are available here! Now! For you!
    Trust yr Reimer.

    Update!! June 15 2014!!
    In honour of Sled Island 2014 I am providing 15 more copies of this cassette! Proceeds will go to the Chris Reimer Legacy Fund being able to provide a second scholarship through Decidedly Jazz Danceworks for a young boy to attend their summer camp. Chris would love to be at Sled Island with all of us, and this way part of him will be.
    5 copies will be sold here, 10 will be at the merch table during some shows as well as with me wherever I happen to be (me being Rena, his girlfriend) so if you see me around this week don't hesitate to ask me about grabbing a copy!
    Any remaining copies after the fest will be made available here for our international friends to get in on.
    And of course the digital download is always here for you.
    Thanks, much love,
    Rena and the Chris Reimer Legacy Fund

    Thank you to everyone who picked up a copy. Chris would be thrilled to know how much this music was appreciated.

    Some time ago Chad VanGaalen approached Chris Reimer of Women offering to reproduce a casette tape of Chris' solo work. Chris started work on this but passed away before completing the project. His closest friends have assembled the songs he intended for the tape, laid it out with Chris's own writing and artwork and now this tape is available here for you.
    ***All proceeds from this release will benefit the Chris Reimer Legacy Fund, an organization dedicated to providing scholarships for children in music and dance education.***

These tracks make up a casette tape that Chris had been working on compiling for several months after Chad VanGaalen got a new tape duplicator and offered to run some tapes off for Chris of his solo ambient work.
