Notes for May 2007

Number of items in this month's catalogue: 9

1. My Greek Lyra shipment is impounded in customs due to a new rule which went into effect in mid-April. Bureaucratic idiocy to the effect of "all incoming sound-carriers must be accompanied by detailed invoices which list "Songwriter", "Song Title" and "Performer"... So, in order to try to stauch the influx of (presumably) Chinese pirate copies of pop music discs, U.S. Customs is prepared to help destroy the few people left who are trying to perpetuate one aspect of Western art culture. Since this shipment came from Lyra's Dutch distributor, it's not clear whether this party-once-removed is able or can be bothered to produce such an invoice (especially since the CDs themselves are in Greek and English only). All I can say is that when they arrive and I've processed them, they'll appear on here, going on from the last number in May.

2. As of now, unfortunately, Pierre Verany and Arion are included in the above. Isn't it nice to know that corporate America is protecting you from evil Greek and French classical music imports?

3. The six newest Lyrita new-to-CD releases will be posted on the web-site on May 8, their street-date. There was a technical glitch last month preventing the April titles from being seen.
