I know there's a few other topics floating around about this, but I'm so self-absorbed and generally important, I had to have my own.

After getting pissed-off with Play.com not actually ever having any in stock, I've decided to cancel my order with them and go somewhere else. The trouble is, is that they were by far the cheapest place to order the CDs from.

There was a thread a few weeks back that contained links to a few alternatives, but it seems to have been one of the casualties of the week's worth of posts that got ditched.

I know Sully used Keymailorder.com, and I might have to go there. They appear to be £13.98 including delivery, but bizarrely you have 'paper-sleeve reissues' at that price, and then 'Japanese mini-vinyl CDs' at £19.98. The lack of any images doesn't help in discerning the difference between the 2.

Actually, having just checked back at that site about 10 minutes after first looking at it, they only seems to stock about 13 Queen items, only 3 of which might be the mini-vinyls. WTF?

So...What other cheap alternatives to play.com have any of you guys found? I'm sure Ogre T Raylot posted a link to somewhere else that looked good.

Any help is much appreciated.

This is the keymailorder page that I ordered from.

The CDs listed at £20 are probably the same, but perhaps they were being imported and sold before the decision to release them here was made.

You can also get them at www.101cd.com - I think the prices vary, but the cheapest are £9.99 plus postage.
