    Thanks, at least seems there is nothing wrong with my account and I am not alone in this "misery," as probably all owners of American accounts are. I am tempted to create the account there with the same credentials and see if it is somehow linking the two.

    I only have Erpland (which is indeed great!), but what is the Soft Machine archival release called? I didn’t realize there was a vinyl edition of anything SM related recently.

    Arrived yesterday:
    Glass Museum - Reflet (thanks to someone here, who mentioned this earlier in this thread, I think)
    Heinz Rudolf Kunze - Werdegang (not prog and a kind of best of, but with new recordings of older songs)
    Klaus Schulze - Picture music (my Schulze collection is growing, but next are some Vangelis albums on my wishlist)

    It's 2 CDs and a DVD; I'm not a vinyl guy anymore.

    Get more Ozrics!

    I understand. This Soft Machine release is one that I've had on my wishlist, so thank you for reminding me to get it.

    More Ozrics is a good idea! They are highly addicting to me -- even though there might not be a whole lot of diversity in their catalog overall, I still find myself collecting more of their stuff as time goes by. I even turned my cousin onto them with Spirals in Hyperspace.

    Not all prog but here's what I picked up recently at a record store in my mom's/brother's area (all cds since I don't listen to or buy vinyl):

    The Moody Blues - The Other Side Of Life (owned it a long time ago on cassette)
    The Screaming Trees - Dust (same as above regarding cassette)
    U2- Rattle And Hum (same as above)
    Mike Oldfield - Islands (used to have it on cd but a different version- I've always liked the side long track)
    It Bites - The Big Lad In The Windmill
    Liz Phair - Exile In Guyville
    U2- Wide Awake In America
    Karnivool - Sound Awake (kind of surprised to see this there)
    Tangerine Dream - Poland (I believe this is a live album from the early to mid 80s)

    These were all used but appeared to be in very good condition (ie no major scratches or scuff marks).

HMV still hasn't resumed international sales since the beginning of COVID, so on Friday I ordered 12 CDs from Amazon Japan and they arrived today! I got a mixed bag of new and old jazz, prog, shoegaze, post rock, and indie rock this time out:

    Kaoru Abe-Motoharu Yoshizawa Duo - Nord
    Ain Soph - Hat & Field
    Hitsuji Bungaku - You Love (EP)
    Hitsuji Bungaku - Our Hope
    Jizue - Garden
    Jyocho - しあわせになるから、なろうよ (CD + DVD)
    Mr. Sirius - Barren Dream
    Mr. Sirius - Dirge
    Mouse on the Keys - 詐欺の子 (soundtrack album to some kind of NHK documentary, I think)
    Regal Lily - アルケミラ*(CD Single + DVD)
    Regal Lily - Cとし生けるもの (CD + Blu-Ray)
    Akira Sakata x Triple Edge - Live at Pit Inn

    The King Records re-issues (Ain Soph, Mr. Sirius) were stupidly cheap, less than $11 CAD each after exchange. I don't expect to be able to watch any of the DVDs on my TV, but I haven't come across one yet that I couldn't play on my computer.
    Got me some of the King Records reissues from the same place. The shipping was really fast even with the split to two shipments. I guess how much they cost depends on the quantity bought. Mine, with 9 titles (CDs) in the order, came out to be around $12 US. Still pretty good deal. Thanks for the tip
