Here's a little plug for mail-order specialists Fun Records based in Germany. If you have ever tried using Musicstack (and if you collect music, them you probably have) then Fun Records appears quite often, usually with comparatively low prices, even accounting for the Dollar/Euro differential.
As collectors of LP's will tell you, finding the albums is less than half the battle. The real challenge is having them shipped many thousands of miles safely without costing a fortune.
Here are five records I recently ordered from Fun.
What you can see here is the 7" and 12" of "Glasshouse" by The Promise, one of my favorite obscure '80's singles, and then The Great Unknown by Nomo, Good Evening Yugoslavia by Hitlist and Stronger Than Reason by Person to Person. I have featured rips from all these outfits before, but these were records I just had to own myself.
Anyway, to get back to my point, I paid about 14 dollars for all of these, and then a further 10 dollars for surface mail. Considering it typically costs over ten bucks to ship one album here just from Canada, I thought that was a good deal, and the surface option probably took a few days longer, but that's all. And as you can see everything was in excellent condition. Well done Fun Records, I will be ordering again soon.
