There seems to be some confusion here. This set, which was re-issued
last November, contains 14 CDs, so there is no chance that it is available
via normal retail at $30. The best prices I could find are in the $70-80
range. What I suspect is being quoted by Miguel is a special CD club
price, and omits the "shipping/handling" charges, which would increase the
price by about $3/CD or about (surprise) $72 total for the set.
I would request that if listmembers are going to post prices on an
international discussion list that they be very explicit about their
sources to avoid this type of confusion (I checked CDNow, CD Connection,
EveryCD, CD World, and CD Universe).
