Hi Pat and all,

not sure where you've found that price Pat,  'cause on the cbc shop I see CAD $ 59.99 plus $ 24.95 shipping (to Europe) total $ 84.94, around 60 euros, plus in my case 20% vat and 6% duty, total 75 euros to my home, still a true bargain of course.
However best price for europeans right now is from Slovakia: euros 58.57 including shipping ( http://shop.supermusic.sk/shop_item.php?id=9001190   ) and they accept paypal (cbc doesn't)
One month ago it was priced around 45 euros in preorder on some european webshops like bol.com but now price has increased to around 75 euros on most.
Let's keep the ean search monitored anyway, still one month to wait for the availability date.

  Dear all

  Oh yeah, a dream has come true ! And it was about time, too ! Finally I get to see stuff I had only read about, the programs that have become part of the GG haigiography by now. It will be interesting to see how Gouldians and the general public will react to some of his views and opinions The times have changed and I fear that his style as a presenter might be seen as anachronistic by now. But what counts is the music, and that is timeless !

  Funny, the GGF has not been trumpeting about this set all over the place. And that the CBC seems to be one of the few places where you can buy this set makes one wonder how the ralations between the GGF, Sony and the CBC are

  10 DVDs with 19 hours for 44 canadian and american bucks, roughly 30 Euros, same in british Pounds (36 CHF for me) is quite a bargain !

  However, this is a DVD Region 1 set, meaning that if you live in Europe i.e. these DVDs might not play on your device. There are legal ways to get around that, depending on the device in question.

  it must also be taken into consideration that the shipping charges are close to street robbery (25 CND for International Orders, 13 bucks for our american friends), given that delivery times range from 3 to six weeks.

  In any case, summet to look forward to !
