It appears you don't keep things in alphabetical order. Do you have a system or just the large Name Tabs and/or just know where everything is?
Thank you for supporting independently produced music

A couple of months ago, I ordered some music from scope ( UK) , global amount round 100 euros. In Belgium, since july 21, one has to pay VAT for any purchase out of CE area. ( VAT 21% in Belgium ), . (Before 1 July 2021, one had to pay VAT only for value greater than 22 euro). Most of music sellers declared the goodies values < 22.
A few days after ,I i got the bill from FEDEX with an extra fee of about 25 euros
Thanx to the brexit , purchasing music from UK has become unpayable... same for ordering from Greg

The Anti-Brexit Elites  punish UK for leaving European Union. Make an example out of UK.  The European Union (and anti-Brexit- British Politicians)  could allow for cheaper than (outrageously expensive) postage if they so wished. It's not the UK Brexit voters making these rules.

Sorry late reply JD, just saw this........And correct, I don't keep anything in alphabetical order or release date order within each band grouping. I don't know where everything is and that's why I made band name tags. I only have my fav artists in the front of each row.
I prefer this system over ABC/123......Some people I have read also keep genre, release date, alphabetical and so on....that's too detailed for me I guess, a little loosey goosey is good.
It's my records, "git off my lawn!!!!" LOL

Good Stuff.

So I submitted my order to Greg at Synphonic and received it two days later. I cant say enough good things about Greg and his excellent store. He is a gentleman and a pleasure to cummunicate with and do business. I made a large order of 32 CDís. Many of these CDís are hard to impossible to find elsewhere and many of the ones that are available elsewhere are twice the price. The packaging was superb. He has a lot of releases I will be ordering in the future. 9 of the 10 releases not in stock will be by next month. A lot of RPI cds are on order for next month. Iím a big fan of this style. He had a lot of classic Prog, hard to get classic Prog and Prog from around the world. Also current Prog bands. The only other vendor I currently work with is my local buddy from Jersey Ken Golden. Ken has more progressive metal, new releases and jazz/fusion while Greg has more of and a constant supply of the classics and hard to find classics plus a lot of recent Prog too.    Between these two vendors my progressive rock listening will stay fulfilled. Just wanted to share some good news.

If you have a friend that loves progressive rock and appreciates the physical format, it would be awesome if you could share this giveaway link with him.

Absolutely...ClapStarStarStarStarStar

Sadly, I probably won't use his services for a few years to come because of those stupid trade wars under the Trump mandate.  Cry
I just paid 42 bucks of custom taxes to import the Swiss band Circus' boxset from Japan (which brought the whole thing to almost 200) and it is roughly the same for the US.
