Cheapest Online Cd stores


Recommended Posts

NEH has really been my go-to store lately but the cheapest places I've used are CD Universe, Deep Discount CD and Amazon.com when using the Amazon Marketplace Sellers section. Of those three I would say Amazon has the best selection.

what are the best online cd stores eg NEH, etc, that are the cheapest or best value for money, both in terms of cd prices and postage costs in peoples opinions....

 

 

thanks

 

Are we talking strictly AOR/hard rock or all genres?

 

The "Specials" sections at both aorheaven.com and schmankerl-records.com (especially the latter) can yield some gems. Once a year or so I go hog nuts at Schmankerl, since they have a very nice selection of out-of-print discs as well as harder-to-find material, e.g., some of the gold disc "Long Island Classics" series are still available for less than $15 each.

 

For those of us in the U.S., I like shopping from theendrecords.com. They're primarily a heavy metal shop, but they have some of the Frontiers material. Here's my most recent order from them; all prices include shipping in the U.S. Orders over $150 get a gift certificate for a future free CD (effectively knocks off another 9-10%):

 

AMBITION - Ambition $13.99

LANA LANE - 10th Anniversary Concert (DVD) $16.49

TALISMAN - Genesis (2CD slipcase) $14.24

TALISMAN - Humanimal (2CD slipcase) $14.24

TALISMAN - Talisman (2CD slipcase) $14.24

TALISMAN - Five Men Live (2CD) $17.00

TALISMAN - Life + 5 Out Of Five (2CD slipcase) $14.24

TEN - The Essential Collection 1995-2005 (2CD) $15.99

TERRA NOVA - Escape $13.99

FARO - Angelost $12.49

If you like it Heavy, lots of Death/Goth metal stuff and also some AOR titles, you can't beat THE END Records. I got Johnny Lima - Made In California and The Jeff Austin Project for 13$ plus only 1.50$ for shipping to Canada. 14.50$ for both new, not a Russian cheapo either, awesome prices. :bananamac:

There a couple that I know of:

 

Pangg Distribution: All items are new and shipping to the states is not a arm and leg. Fast Delivery too. Prices on somethings a very good, other things are decently priced.

 

http://www.paengg.de/

 

Sentinel Steel: Mainly Metal, they have both new and used items, Great clearance deals one right now is $5.88 cd or five for $24.88

 

http://www.sentinelsteel.com/CD/CDClearance/CDCloseOut.html

 

Wishing Well Entertainment: Prices are good to high. Both new and out of print and rare. They are good a descriptions, fast delivery. Well work a look.

 

http://www.wishingwellonline.com/

 

Fun Records: They can have very good prices on rare or hard to find cds. Hugh catalog, but difficult to go through, unless you download there Excel catalog. About 4 out every five items are in stock. Shipping is OK priced. Items are usually in great condition. Their drawback is very, very, very slow shipping sometimes over 2 months, but they can have gems, so if you can wait, you may want to try.

There are a few more:

 

Perris Records: Besides being a label the have over a 1,000 cds for sell. Usually at good prices. There are cds that are listed in their catalog though they do not have in stock. They are very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The big news with them is that they now have offices in Sweden, besides Texas. With the Sleaze Glam scene that is going on over there, the catalog should be quite good. I talked to Tom last december and he was telling about a bunch of bands they I had never heard of. Should be a very interesting year for them.

there exist a lot of german sellers, mostly from bavaria, who nearly sell same stuff at same prices. they buy overstocks from frontiers and mtm, and also the old stuff from the deleted long island label. amazing that there are still so many copies available, cause this was limited stuff.

CM Distro, which is the mail-order catalog of Century Media Records, has a great selection of weird, obscure metal (not just Century Media releases) and decent prices too. I've used them several times and their service was always great.

I really found many treasures on this site : >> Price Minister << It's a french online market (not only for CDs)... I found some true rare stuffs for less than 10/15 € (most of time sellers dunno the true value of what they are selling...)... But shippings are only for France, french-Switzerland, and Belgium... It's a kind of mini-ebay, without the bid system.

If patience is a commodity you possess... check out ONECENTJAPANESECDS... new shop- just opened up on eBay, auctioning off 100s of Japanese import CDs (mostly AOR/hard rock/metal) every week, at one cent a piece... sure, some will go for more- but dozens, are guaranteed to go for a penny. Pay for shipping, and the CD is essentially yours for free.

 

Here it is: http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQsassZonecentjapanesecdsQQhtZ-1

 

...and if the low feedback/new seller status is a concern, ask any veteran on this site to vouch for it... it's an extension of well established eBay stores, Kissmydisc, Earotic, and others.

 

Cheers,

PJ

I had no idea that Alyssa Milano had released so many albums? :blink::)

Ehhh, on second thought, if I started eBaying I'd probably blow out my credit cards buying tons of CDs, my wife would divorce me and I'd be livin in a cardboard box someplace. So never mind. :lol:

PJ, stop tempting me dammit! :) Seriously, if I didn't have such unimportant frills as a mortgage, clothing and food to pay for I'd be all over that auction! ;)

Any changes over the years? I never know where the greatest deals are, so I'll take all the suggestions you have.

I usually buy from CD Baby. I got my shipment from my first StormSpell order (very reliable). I also just put an order in to Nightmare Records.

Sentinel Steel is good too, but you need to email them on what you want (Usually the ones I want are already taken :( ).

Capital City Records is good, but not much to offer (Product wise).

Grindcore/ Death freaks should check out TankCrimes..

I find a lot of deals with Amazon sellers. I see a CD on eBay then go over to Amazon find better deals a lot of the time.

 

Demon Doll Records is starting to sell a lot of imports at pretty good prices. I know some have issues with them, but I've never had a problem.

    • No, you need to show me where the pulse is. 
    • Yeah, it's a great album (Vanity Kills, 2010). Any new material on the horizon?   
    • Lyric video for 'Return To Glory'.    
    • New album out November 22 through Lions Pride Music. From Lions Pride Music: Martin Perticone AKA “Perticone Underdog” is an artist from Buenos Aires, Argentina who’s been in the music industry since the age of 13, when he joined the band Fondo Blues as a lead singer and guitar player. Martin played in the Argentinean under circuits for more than 25 years but during the way also got to know many important people in the music industry that led him to become Tour Manager for artists like Eric Martin from Mr Big in 2007 or even being invited as a guest for Richie Kotzen Latin American Tour in 2008. Martin has also toured around Latin America, USA, Europe and Hong Kong as a hired gun for many different artists until he finally decided to put more efforts on his solo career. That’s how his long-time friend Edu Giardina (well-known artist in Latin America) would become his producer and mentor for his debut album “Underdog”. The mixture of AOR, Southern Rock and Country makes this album unique and different with amazing and powerful melodies all over the place. The album featured guests such as Eric Martin (Mr Big) and Edu Giardina and brings reminiscent from the late 80’s and 90’s but keeping the best of current sounds and trends too. Perticone’s solo career has just begun and in only 1 year from his launch he’s got many followers and fans in Europe, Asia and Latin America. “Stuff In The Basement” was recorded during pandemic times at RED Studios Buenos Aires and features an amazing line-up of musicians from all over the world. Edu Giardina and Guillermo Porro got involved, one more time, as the producers and band members for this new release taking the album to another level. It is plain to see the growth of Perticone Underdog as an artist on this new production by just listening to the opening track of the album “Blame it on Me”. There are, as usual, some country “pearls” and 90’s rock reminiscences all over. Stuff in the Basement will be released in 29 August 2022 by Lions Pride Music worldwide!   CD Tracklist: 01. Blame It On Me 02. End Of The Line 03. Name Without A Face 04. Save Me Tonight 05. Game For Fools 06. Waiting 07. Let's Get Lost Tonight 08. What Went Wrong (I Wonder) 09. When It Rains 10. Falling   Perticone Underdog is: Martin Perticone: Lead & Backing Vocals, Acoustic & Rhythm Guitar Edu Giardina: Backing Vocals, Guitars, Bass, Keys, Drums, Progamming Ezequias Aquino: Saxophone Guillermo Porro: Guitar Solo on „Name Without A Face“ Will Wilde: Harmonica on „Game Of Fools“ Emmanuel Lopez: Lead Guitar on „Let's Get Lost Tonight“ Lara Goi: Backing Vocals on „What Went Wrong“ Brad Harper: Pedal Steel Guitar on „When It Rains“   facebook
