OK, one of the sellers (cdquest) on the Marketplace at Amazon has randomly reduced a whole bunch of stuff to 1. So with the 1.21 postage I got all of these for... wait for it... 2.21

Mercyful Fate - Time
Mercyful Fate - In The Shadows
Clutch - Blast Tyrant
Eric Sardinas - Treat Me Right
King Diamond - Abigail II
Waylon Jennings - Are You Ready For The Country/What Goes Around Comes Around
Symphony X - The Damnation Game
Death Angel - Art of Dying
Vinnie Moore - The Minds Eye
Venom - Welcome To Hell
Buckethead - Electric Tears
Porcupine Tree - Lightbulb Sun
Eric Gales - The Story of My Life
Hatchet - Awaiting Evil
Opeth - Limited Edition Box Set (4CD set, bought purely for the Lamentations live CD)
Opeth - The Roundhouse Tapes
Mountains - Masters of War

Even these brand new 2009 releases:
Bloodbound - Tabula Rosa
Live - Live At The Paradiso
Five Finger Death Punch - The Way of The Fist
Yngwie Malmsteen - Angels of Love


Remarkable. Possibly too good to be true. We'll see how many turn up!

You'll be laughing if it all turns out to be bullshit and none of them turn up. But that's the beauty of Amazon. Shit doesn't arrive or turns up fucked, they just get my money back for me.

Hmmm, they appear to still be in the process of reducing stuff to 1. Just grabbed some more stuff which when I went through my wishlist the first time (above) wasn't 1:

Atheist - Piece of Time
Atheist - Unquestionable Presence
Robin Trower - Back It Up
Waylon Jennings & Willie Nelson - Waylon & Willie
Blackfoot - Siogo

Well, there's isn't one really. I mean, their storefront on Amazon is: http://www.amazon.co.uk/shops/cdquest_us

But it doesn't list all their products or anything. I just went through my wishlist.

Don't forget also this is the UK, so you'll be paying shipping as if you were ordering from the UK, but the items will be shipped from the US.

Try finding that seller on Amazon.com.

Edit: I think the company in question is actually www.cdquest.com, but the prices aren't the same.

Thanks. I was really more curious than anything.

I can't help but feel if you do only get charged one pound for all of those, it will be pennies split up among executives and not the artists.

I also can't help but feel that this is what's killing the music.

You are working on the basis that the merchant got the CD for free. In most cases, when the merchant has bought their stock, that's the label's part done. They've made their money. They take their cut, and pass the rest on to the wherever it is it's got to go (fuck all to the artist, as we know).

What the merchant sells a CD for is their business. If you pay $10 for a CD or $1 for a CD, that makes no difference to what the artist gets. The difference between those two prices is the difference in profit the seller makes. They've already paid the wholesale price to the label/distributer.

I've no problem paying less than RRP for a CD. Ever.

What's killing music is the same shit that's always been killing music. Moron public, bullshit radio and illegal music trading (which, these days, is downloading).

I'll get it when it's cheap.
Best Buy, Amazon, and FYE all seem to have it listed between $12 and $16 for the 2-DVD version, at least for pre-order and initial offer.
