    This is non-Saxon related, but I figured someone here would be knowledgeable on the subject.

    I am looking for Tygers of Pan Tang 'Spellbound' on CD. I know it was released once, but I am having trouble finding it. They have used copies on Amazon (for a lot of dough)

    Anyone know of a good place to check. Looking for a new CD if possible.

    Thanks in advance.

    Ebay would be worth a go, but it won't be new. Spellbound is a cracking album.

    Yeah everyone seems to prefer The Cage. But for me, Spellbound is way better.

    You can get many of their albums from their web site, but they don't have spellbound. There is always 1 CD on Ebay, and I always lose the bidding war.

    I might just get the LP and transfer it to CD. (can get the record pretty easy on Ebay)

    Thanks for your help.

    Cheers

    Spellbound rocks, I had a wee blast of that a few weeks ago. Tremendous stuff. Saw them a couple of times as well, saw them at Reading Festival and they were brill and also a double header of TOPT with Praying Mantis - that was mighty delicious.

    Until you can obtain an original copy of the album ;) have you tried any of the p2p programs or better still Bitorrent ?

    I found this, if you scroll down a little and click show all files you will see that the spellbound album is there.. http://www.torrentspy.com/directory.asp?mode=torrentdetails&id=409754&query=tygers+of+pan+tang
    Problem is there doesnt appear to be any seeders, although stats for older torrents on TS are usually not accurate. If no seed shows up you could always post a comment and request one perhaps?

    That actual torrent is being tracked by piratebay and it is showing 5 leechers btw.

    Or i noticed something on ebay called "want it now" where you make a post requesting something, ive never tried it myself....I cant see somthing like that working very well though but you never know!

    Valanx,
    Thanks for your help. I've managed to find some of the songs on P2P. I haven't tried getting the whole album. (I will try eDon or BT) Sound isn't the best for what I got, like 128k.
    I knew a guy in college that had a Japanese pressing of spellbound, which sounded pretty good. (sometimes older CDs don't have a very good sound)

    Anyway problem solved.
    I bought the vinyl, and am going to transfer it to CD.

    About a year ago I went to pawn shop and bought I Technics 1200 turntable.
    Some music just sounds better or vinyl. IMO

    I'm a big fan of vinyl.I think most music sounds better on it.Cds can sometimes sounda bit to clean.

    "Spellbound" is awesome! And if you like that album, I also highly recommend "Live At Nottingham Rock City," if you don't have it already. Great live performance from the "Spellbound" tour, and luckily not too hard to come by.
