Notes for August 2014
Number of items in this month's catalogue: 0NOTE: Some customers, when ordering, do not click through to the blurbs, where items which are mid-price or budget-price reissues are cited as such. Therefore, in order to try to prevent you from buying a reissue of something you may have already bought years ago at full price, I've added "CD reissue" to the Format field on the main monthly web page.
