Some may consider shopping on the World Wide Web a pretty
hazardous endeavor. You may be right. I haven't experienced any difficulties
until now. Perhaps I was lucky. But I also believe that corporations like
CDnow can hardly afford to misplease their customers. The following
list gives you some ideas what's possible if you have a credit card
and, as with any kind of shopping, you've got enough money to spend.
If you have doubts whom to trust, check out BizRate,

CDnow - USA-based Internet CD shop: the biggest, of course, good service, no complaints so far on my side,
on the contrary, I recommend them
- ironically in USA-based (Florida), very good selection
of European musicians and bands, but sometimes pretty expensive; their
service is a bit slow, but otherwise no complaints
- USA-based (in LA), good selection, fair prices, some good
deals here and there - I haven't checked it out myself yet
Connection - USA-based, very good selection -
I haven't tried it yet
(Global Electronic Music Marketplace - USA-based (San Clemente, Calif.), very good
selection of new and used CDs and vinyls, exchange bourse, prices seem
to be ok, but again, I haven't checked them out yet
Downloadable Music Site -
MPEG Music Archive, free mpeg audio players, online radio, vinyl database,
music links, web rings and online T-Shirt gallery
World - specialized on folk and folk-rock, huge
catalogue of old material, heaps of European imports; prices are good,
I haven't checked them out yet
- German Internet CD shop, with German prices - aaargh!
- but with some stuff you ain't get anywhere else, thus, sometimes you've
gotta pay the price though they should deduct the German VAT if we order
