The Kickstarter campaign for Project Hubbard, which was a project of creating multiple remix and arrangement albums of Rob Hubbard music along with a book, included a vinyl option for one of the albums.
The Hubbard 80 album is arranged by Rob Hubbard himself alongside Marcel Donné and features tracks arranged as if they were played in 1979 with modular synths, strings and horns.
The release is a black vinyl 2LP. It is housed in a gatefold jacket with design by Ian Flory, Thomas Finnerup and Chris Abbott.
The campaign launched on October 5, 2017 with a goal of £50,000 and ended on November 5, 2017 with more than £80,000 in funding.
Physical rewards were scheduled to ship out in April 2019, but the whole album recording was delayed. It arrived with the label in July 2022, however most album jackets were damaged on arrival. It began shipping out with fixed jackets in late September, 2022.
