I tried to order some CD from zavvi online but they cancelled the orders because they can't get deliveries from the largest distributor Woolworths Shocked

Yes, there was some discussion on R2 one lunchtime about the Christmas charts this year might be very unusual because of the supply problems

Zavvi, W H Smith and Tesco, to name just three, were supplied by Woolworth's entertainment wholesale division and have suffered disruption.
In addition the independent distributor Pinnacle has gone into administration, affecting sales of artists on minor labels (about 3.8% of the market), like Katie Melua and Connie Talbot (don't laugh! Laughing )

I don't know Connie Talbot, but I like Connie Francis, Connie Stevens, and Connie Smith (a Country singer who recorded many Bill Anderson songs back in the sixties.)
