I refuse to buy any indie CD for more than fifteen bucks. I usually try
to stick with mail-order. My pet peeve with mail-order from the U.S.
though is that after you add up the exchange rate and postage, CD's which
seem very cheap if you were a U.S. resident(eg. $10 ppd for a CD) costs
about $15-$20 for a person ordering from Canada. Thank God for flea
markets and used CD stores and of course buying CD's/tapes at shows!
p.s. why does Cinnamon Toast merchandise cost so much through mail-order?
eg. a CD costs $15 + $2 postage=$17 total(cdn) and this is suppose to be
an indie label? go figure ....
