    June 2021 - Eu27 we are attempting surface mail again so shipping is now at £9.00 for CD

    Sadly the postal services round the world have been swamped and caught out by the COVID19 pandemic - It's been like double Holiday / Christmas service with reduced staff in most territories. This delay and chaos has hit services in North America especially badly. So we have switched all shipments to North America via UPS.

    BE AWARE YOU MAY BE LIABLE TO CUSTOMS DUTY AND SALES TAX /VAT ON DELIVERY (all shipments ex UK)

    On top of a global pandemic disaster, Brexit has also caught up with us in the UK - It's now a logistics nightmare shipping to EU 27 from the UK. As with US shipments where possible we will use UPS to track deliveries to try and avoid hold ups, but new border controls now dictate delays and possible tariffs, customs charges and VAT charged locally to you the buyer - we can't stop this new regime or get round it - we've been told 'its the will of the UK people'- we haven't met anyone who can explain great benefit this (yet)

    But - Please be sure all our fans & friends in Europe - we still love you. Don't give up on us!

    TL:RL
    If you can't get this product via Amazon locally, please understand we will now only ship via tracked courier to Europe, USA & Can. This makes the shipping, even at cost only, expensive but it is 100% reliable in so far as tracking will help us locate lost shipments easier and resolve problems faster.

    Shipping to UK & ex North America ex ROW are still being done via surface mail.
