I've gotten a CD or two from overseas. Particularly good was a compilation called "The Piper's Rock" which features a bunch of up and coming uilleann pipers from Ireland. Unfortunately, it was recorded in the 70's and was only re-released in a small quantity. I finally found an American Uilleann piper who ran his own CD importing business who was able to get it for me. He took care of all the hassle involved; I just remember the CD being a tad more expensive than others (mostly cause it was rare I think) and it was a sizeable amount of time between when I placed the order and when it came in.
It's not quite a CD, but I also ordered a Low D whistle from Howard and Sons. That was a great transaction except for the part where I had to convert $50 into pound sterling and send a money order across the ocean.
It's amazing what you can do with a little motivation and a lot of whiskey. -Name that Musician
BTW...the CD distributer was Phillip Varlet. I think his business is called Celtic Imports or something like that. I recommend him highly. Fast, efficient, and reasonably priced considering the whole getting rare CD's from another continant deal.
