I'm new to the Cluas forums but just saw some interesting stuff on some of the boards that got me thinking. How do y'all get your hands on cheap music?
On my odd visit to the US I used love paying a visit to http://www.streetlightrecords.com//
(a new & used place with great prices) - i would literally come home with a suitcase of CDs.
Anyway I see The_Thin_Man
mentioning picking up some great older irish cds on www.amazon.com for $1 or $2, eoghan
talked about using www.ebay.co.uk and QsySue
has used www.half.com. I have only ever used amazon or www.cdwow.ie to buy new cds. Does anyone have any other good tips on buying music (new & used) online?
Those second hand prices mentioned are great but are the shipping costs double the price of the cd? Is it possible to buy a few cds and get them shipped together? What about customs duties?
Are there any easy ways of finding interesting stuff at those crazy prices other than searching for artist names? I am a bit of a browser, my tastes are indie but they cross over to jazz, blues, soundtracks, etc and if the price is right would like to buy stuff on cd that i already have on vinyl or but stuff by older artists that i don't own.
