Now I wonder, was the affiliate from whom you got the back order message
Caiman? That was my experience with them. When I asked a second time
a few weeks later and got verbatim the same message I voiced my suspicions
and they then said that they couldn't obtain the disc. I tried German
Music Express, another affiliate, and the disc (a deleted Sony Classical
recording) reached me in England within 2 weeks. (I have no financial
connexion with either of these companies).
