His compac discs/tapes have been somewhat hard to find in New England and
New York, but I've had some luck with a business at the "malls" named
"Coconut's" - a record store. I've also been able to find Charlotte
Church's selections there too.
Try Sian on the internet - in Wales. Folks I know in the US have had good
luck with them and trust them.
