... has started this week. Interesting to see in it, down to 6-7, recent albums by Springsteen, Eagles, Macca, Fratellis, Blunt, Adele, Feist, Scouting For Girls - even the Traveling Wilburys' box set and goodies now gives you change (1p) from a tenner.

(Different prices apply in the stores and online - you have to check both for the cheapest)

If you can wait a week or so for an album, why not try Amazon's US website and use their 'Marketplace'? With the strong against the dollar, even with the $3.89 postage I'm still only paying around 2.00-3.50 for brand-new (some still in shrink wrap) albums from various music sellers all over the US.

Most take around 10 days to arrive, and providing you don't buy more than $18 worth in one transaction from a single seller, you don't incur customs charges....

I'd not thought of that Cherskiy, but a good idea. Must check it out.

One name I omitted from the list above - Kylie. EMI obviously seriously over-estimated the number of that one they were going to sell last Christmas!

If you have a Fopp near you, they are also having a bit of a clearout - the first two albums of the fragrant Bic Runga can be had for 3, Kasabian for 2 and Regina Spektor (an acquired taste, I know) for five.
