Just wondering if UK members have found this a relatively simple process. Basically, I have been thinking of buying a copy of Bat Chain Puller which is hard to find in UK, and expensive. However, it's $20 on Zappa site with I think about $15 P&P to UK, which works out at around £22, significantly cheaper than any I have found so far in UK. Would I be safe from any import duty or tax at that price ? Any further information welcome e.g. delivery time etc.

Thanks

Barry

Sorry, they do have it, didn't realise there was a second page of the Captain's stuff !! That might be my best bet, a few quid dearer but quicker.

Thanks again.

PS still interested to know if anyone has used Zappa site for music, t shirts etc. and what their experience was.

I have used barfko swill for a bunch of stuff over the years (well in excess of 200 transactions) without any problems, except for a couple of shattered jewel cases, which isn't bad considering my location on the globe....

I purchased a copy of Greasy Love Songs from them. It cost me around £25 in total with shipping included. Took just over a week to arrive and wasn't damaged.

If you're ever in Camden town have a look around all the music stores there. So much captain/zappa on vinyl and cd for cheap. I got BCP for £3!!
