Thanks Richard, Sanity has shops in all the major shopping malls. I just rang the Shellharbour Mall shop, near us, & they expect a consignment of 11 tomorrow. (June 10th) That would be typical for all shops I believe. Australia wide that means 152 shops x 11 = 1672 CD's awaiting purchase. I notice too the Readings stores around Melbourne are advertising Paradiso !! Graeme
The loveliest, sweetest flower that bloomed in paradise, and the first that died, has rarely blossomed since on mortal soil. It is so frail, so delicate, a thing, it is gone if it but look upon itself; and she who ventures to esteem it hers proves by that single thought she has it not. Humility - Fry
