    I placed an order when he had 50% off and free shipping on 5 titles or more, so i thought id give him a try. I got my package the same week with a cd missing and a note saying it was out of stock so i would be refunded. I was fine with that.

    Well a month goes by, i send an email, no response. 2 months go by,several emails, no response. 3 months, same thing. So i finally write on there UM Forum openly stating this, and not 2 hours later i received a long email and a phone call telling me thats not how I should have handled things and that it was pretty much all my fault for not calling them, great customer service right? Needless to say I know openly share this story to warn everybody of the rip off nature up there.

    Exactly. It's right there in front of you. It's the online ordering that's a problem. The only reason I can imagine you got stuff from him cheap is overstock. Had to be. you can always count on CD-Is-Lame to have the highest prices. If you have $100 bucks burning a hole in your pocket, you can go to their web site and lay down AT LEAST $75 of it on a brand spanking new copy of Iron Maiden's "Best Of 1980-1990"...

    At ProgPower it's not unusual to be able to get most of his inventory at $8-10.

    yeah he is great for not letting you know something is out of stock. I only order from him is it something I can't get anywhere else.....usually not an issue anymore.

    Actually the "warehouse" is a storage building on his property he has been using for the store. He just closed his P.O. Box address and is using his physical address for the store now.

    By the way, if you want real Viking reissues, better look for Urubuz Records presses. I've got the Intruder one and it's pretty good. :)

    Thanks for the heads up. However, I'm not a big fan of re-releases licensed from labels with zero band input... with some exceptions of course.

    I may have to pick up that Liege Lord for the distro, or at least for myself.

    Hello! This is my first (public) post. I am Francesco from Italy

    I got the Viking "box set" when it came out, simply ordering it from the band itself along with the two Demos on CDR. I got no problem and they delivered to Italy

    To be honest the audio quality isn't bad at all...I had the "Do or die" CD bootleg version and it doesn't sound better, while "Man of straw" seems good. I can't compare with the Lost & Found version as I don't have it but it's not bad

    The packaging is simple but I like it...too bad they didn't included the bonus tracks from the L&F and the two CDs with the demos are pro-printed CDr only, as you can see on the images I uploaded on Discogs at the Viking page

    In any case...better than nothing. I suppose the L&F version sounds similar to this version
