Ordering Portuguese music from Portugal. (1995) [I trashed the
original email message so I could not reply].

I don't believe there are any Portuguese mail order company that will sell CD's abroad. However I managed to find a good record shop that would not refuse a mail order if it arrives. They have no catalog. However if it is Portuguese music you are looking for and if it is in print then you will find it there. You may want to try and get advice on Portuguese music on the newsgroup "soc.culture.portuguese". Note that CD's prices are high here, up to 4000 escudos each. Some can also be as low as 2000 escudos (for instance the Jose Afonso's CD's). [1USD = 150 escudos (1995)]. Probably they understand English in the shop. However, just in case, I prepared a very simple bilingual order form that you may want to use. ************************************************************************ IMPORTANT NOTE: I am only trying to be helpful here. I have no connection with the shop and I do not accept to be held responsible for any bad situation that might arise from this information. You have been warned! ************************************************************************
