Emily Wells again. I'm her plaything lately.
Speaking of her, I gave my copy of her CD, The Symphonies: Dreams Memories & Parties
to a friend as a birthday gift, and I ordered myself a replacement on Emily's MySpace page
. It's simply a link to send a PayPal payment of $12, which is how I bought my copy before. Welllls, after a long time of not getting it, PayPal finally informed me that my payment was being canceled due to Emily not confirming her address or something like that. I imagine it's because she's been on tour and hasn't had time to attend to it. Anyway, I was starting to wonder if I shouldn't have given up my copy, as now it was starting to make sense why the only copies available on Amazon.com were from third party sellers on Amazon.com
, who were asking $94.99 and $129.99. A more recent seller is asking the comparatively reasonable price of $49.99. Thankfully, I found another option in Music Millennium
. I wasn't familiar with the site, but at $9.99 for the album, I considered the risk worth it. I ordered two copies, one to replace my own and an extra to give to another friend. My copies arrived today, so hallelujah. Of course, if I was less picky, the MP3 download version of the album was always available for $8.99 on Amazon.com, but I'll leave lossy downloads to the younger generation. Give me physical media (that's my pickup line for Regina, to anyone following my restraining order attempt).
Anyway, if you're going to try out Emily Wells, I would still recommend this album, even though I like Beautiful Sleepyhead and the Laughing Yaks
just as much after spending time with it. Get both if you're mega-rich.
