I had thought to buy this, but there are a couple of questions. First off, Paraic’s website says "release 10th Dec. 2018". Also, they seem to want to charge £21.87 to post to the UK. I think I’ll let this one go.

Hi Kenny,

Thank you for checking out the CD and I’m sorry that the result thus far was a negative for you. Two things to note, however: one, the date system they use is Month/Date/Year so in fact, the release date was 12th October, this year. Two, I agree that the quoted price for shipping is extortionate and in fact, not the arrangement that I’d understood to be in place. There IS alright a steep 23% VAT on the base price plus a modest Shipping fee but… that’s still a long way from what you’re being quoted! Yours is the third example of this mix-up that I’ve come across… I’ve committed to get to the bottom of it and will revert. Don’t give up just yet… it’d be a shame for you to miss out (Ha!) Seriously… hang in!
Kind regards - Páraic

Hi Paraic - thanks for the reply. I didn’t make a mistake with the date. The website says literally "releases 10th December 2018". If that’s not the case, then that needs to be changed.
I sent a "digipak" CD to Ireland yesterday for less than £3. CDs in "jewel-cases" are under £4. I’d be surprised to have to pay much more than that for a CD coming from Ireland to Scotland.
Once you get the P&P costs sorted, please let us know.
All the best, Kenny

This is a terrific CD, with lots of tracks, so you get a great value for the dollar as well. Wonderful "live" feel throughout and the playing is infectious and inventive.

Highly recommended.

I got a digital download via Bandcamp, so I didn’t have to pay postage to the U.S.

Just updated the tune link for Track 2 "Tommy Coen’s". It was linked to Christmas Eve before, but I’m pretty sure it’s actually Cottage in the Grove.
