You clearly need a new store to peruse.  Are you anywhere close to Sam the Record
Man in downtown T.O.?  For that matter, is Sam still even there (over to the
list's Torontonians for an update on that).

*amazon.com* and *barnesandnoble.com* are two internet sites that come to
mind.  Don't know if they ship to Canada, but shouldn't be hard to find out.
I've heard some less-than-impressive anecdotes about cdnow, but I have
no first-hand experience with them.  Good luck!
