Well that is strange. I assume you've told them about this? I got mine pretty soon IIRC.

  Yeah, I told them and they said they'd do something.  And then I just told them again and they said I'd hear back in 3 days--which are pretty much up :-\
   I'm not that worried about it.  I didn't spend much and actually found the set online.  I'll see what happens 8)

Oh for heaven's sake don't order it before you hear back from them. It is Sunday, you should just email them again tomorrow if they don't email you first.

I received an email from primephonic.com, an online classical retailer new to me. Does anyone have any knowledge of or experience with them?

Bought two CDs from online seller CDBaby. Payment went through OK and got confirmation. The item has now been despatched and this wonderful e-mail informed me of the fact.



Thanks for your order with CD Baby!
(1) Bruce Hungerford: Pianist Bruce Hungerford: Last Recital
(1) Bruce Hungerford: Pianist Bruce Hungerford Plays a Live Beethoven Sonata Recital


Your CDs have been gently taken from our CD Baby shelves with sterilized contamination-free gloves and placed onto a satin pillow.

A team of 50 employees inspected your CDs and polished them to make sure they were in the best possible condition before mailing. Our world-renowned packing specialist lit a local artisan candle and a hush fell over the crowd as he put your CDs into the finest gold-lined box that money can buy.

We all had a wonderful celebration afterwards and the whole party marched down the street to the post office where the entire town of Portland waved "Bon Voyage!" to your package, on its way to you, in our private CD Baby jet on this day, December 2, 2015.

We hope you had a wonderful time shopping at CD Baby. In commemoration, we have placed your picture on our wall as "Customer of the Year." We're all exhausted but can't wait for you to come back to CDBABY.COM!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Sigh...
We miss you already. We'll be right here at http://cdbaby.com/, patiently awaiting your return.
Cheers

Holden

I think they should have brought in Bruce Hungerford to kiss and bless the CDs before packaging.

 ;D ;D I've ordered from CDBaby before (and been satisfied) but never have they rained anything like this on me! You must really be special, Holden!

Has anyone tried primephonic? I'm trying to get the free sampler, but my antivirus is not liking the downloader.

Could anyone tell me, please, what the options are when buying from Amazon when in Denmark? The amazon.dk appears to redirect to the co.uk, regardless. Is it simply a case of choosing the nearest Amazon store(s)?

It looks to me as if amazon.dk does not exist, there's no link to it on any of the other amazon pages.

Yeah, when I use the URL it just redirects to the UK site. But I thought it might differ depending on location - so that the nearest version/country would be the destination.

I thought Danes were cool with being naked in public and all that?  :o

Somehow I missed this when it happened in 2015, but Naxos bought ArkivMusic.

Anyone familiar with Clic Musique? They have some good prices on some harder to find labels. Do they ever have sales on labels or sitewide sales?

This is their site: http://www.clicmusique.com/index.php
Be kind to your fellow posters!!

They are a distributor, so the plus us that they have  a lot of stuff that is hard to get elsewhere.
I haven't seen any sales. They also sell through Amazon (UK).
You would think buying from them directly would be cheaper, especially if a order involves multiple items.
But no.... ::) I've found that their Amazon price on a particular item is often significantly lower, and their own shipping rates are not very advantageous either.

So, if you find something interesting on their website - check Amazon first before deciding where to place your order.  :)
