Maybe everyone knows about this ... or maybe not. But for those who like sniffing out a bargain, it's worth keeping an eye on the Hyperion website - most particularly their section called "Please someone, buy me!" Here's the link:
Please someone buy me
It's a list of ten Hyperion albums that no one has bought for the longest period of time. Their 'bottom ten', in a way. And all ten are for sale, post free, at less than half price. So a single CD sells for typically £5.60.
The list changes every couple of days, because of course people buy these bargains so then they're no longer in the 'least wanted' list. So it's worth making a point of checking out the website every couple of days to see if there's anything in the latest list that might tempt you.
The present list will almost certainly change tomorrow, but at this moment, for example, you can buy a copy of William Wallace's Creation Symphony for a mere £5.60; you might not feel inclined to experiment at full price, but for a mere fiver, worth a try - an interesting and unusual symphony-with-a-programme by a neglected British late Romantic. And there are 9 other CDs to choose from.
Anyway, now you know.
