Listened to some Jim Croce this weekend. Plain amazing. Truly sad that he died so young. Just think of all the other amazing songs he could have written.

I often mention that "several" Amazon sellers have a certain item available, and have been asked if I could be more specific. First let me say that in nearly 100 transactions in the past few years I've had no problem with any of them for either new or used classical discs. Any of the used items described as "very good" or better have had essentially perfect disc surfaces.

For the Bartok collection suggested above I can recommend the one I've dealt with most frequently because of excellent service, i.e., "blowitoutahere" who's offering the 2-disc set for $7.24.

I'll also list those I've had multiple dealings with: Classical Music Superstore; importcds; newbury_comics; mbischel3; MovieMars.

I've bought quite a few used CDs from Amazon sellers, as well. newbury-comics and MovieMars for sure, and will second JohnK's recommendation. Haven't had problems at all with the sellers and have found, in all but one case, the CDs arriving as described. The one CD was described "Like New" but looked like it had been slid across a coffee table. This one CD was NOT from the above sellers.

I think I've only had one issue buying music from third-party sellers, and I believe it was -importcds. They sent me the wrong item, and they expected me to pay return shipping back, and then they would send the correct item when they got the incorrect item back. I think they were going to reimburse me for shipping, but I didn't like being saddled with the hassle of doing that when they should really have a prepaid label system in place.

No issue with third party sellers yet. I don't keep track of the ones I use. Oddly enough, some of the quickest shipments I have ever received, came from the UK.

Newbury Comics is a Southern New England (So Neng, Ken?)
brick and mortar chain with about 15 stores. One is 3 miles from my house and I (too frequently) frequent another 5. It's great fun to flip through all that stuff in-the-flesh and be surprised from time to time.

From Amazon, I have never had any problems with the actual used cd's, though the jewel cases may have been abused.

If any other Hosers want to order the Bartok collection Johnk mentions above, I received a new copy from "ScreamingCD" in Ontario in just 3 days. Pretty good for basic delivery.

It was a couple of dollars more than the US and UK sellers but I like to order Canadian when I can. Now that last weeks travels are done, maybe I will get a chance to listen to it.

Has anyone heard this cd and what do you think of it?
http://www.amazon.com/Revolutionary-Bonu...carpenter+organ

it's available either in CD or SACD; does SACD give a better quality sound?
