Find me copies available to the UK of the following two CDs:

The Two Albums on one CD dealie containing "Los Angeles" and "Wild Gift" by X

The eponymous album by Orchestra Luna

I'm sure I'll be able to think of more eventually.

Is this an "I can't be arsed to do this myself" thread?

It's an "I don't want to pay $28 for a direct import from japan via the US" thread.

In other words, yes.

In other words, I've spent a total of c:a 4 hours searching for these CDs and I've exhausted all my options, if GEMM is correct there are none locally and all the retailers I've checked with don't have them.

what about $18 dollars for the Orchestra Luna LP?

The X double album is available from the second hand section of amazon USA for about $10. I don't know how reliable this is...

Hmm, that still works out as $28 doesn't it. Doesn't seem too expensive for two rare CD's though. And that X album is produced by Ray Manzerek from the Doors.

Those are the two sources I've found so far. Thanks for helping anyway. :)

Yeah, $28 is okay. If I don't like it I'm sure I can flog it for a decent buck too. Though I believe I will, considering what I've heard off it on MP3s.

Anyone else want an obscure Japan Import CD? The postage works out much cheaper for bulk mailings.

Now that's a shame, I would have bought the Japanese version of Stranger Than Fiction if it were now, but I bought it a long time ago now, so you are shit out of luck :D

good album, Stranger Than Fiction. Might have to go listen to it again actually.
