    Just received an email update saying it was pushed back 3-4 weeks. There are around a half dozen other CDs in this pianist's series under the same label that simply say "unavailable" (which you can't order), so I hope their distributor is able to fill this one.

    CD Japan is good, and for the obscure I have had good luck with YS JAPAN STORE on Amazon Marketplace.

    I also would like to know what this means.

    I think it is for countries that charge a VAT (value added tax) on imports.

    You don't need to "mark as gift" for any music media brought into the U.S. It is all duty free.

    I regularly purchase from CD Japan. Just received this week the Japanese cardboard sleeve versions of Toto IV and Wings Over America. Great sound and no issues. I have over 300 of Japanese cardboard sleeve mini LP CD's and most came from CD Japan.

    Amazon are also clear about their CDR On-Demand service. It'll say CDR in the "product description" section. I've only encountered it with reissues of Japanese artists from the 70s, which has a much smaller audience than reissues of say Jazz or US/UK artists.
