Most forthright comment so far on Overseas Distributors
I have 2 messages from BF basically saying this as well, plus encouraging us non UK people to get UK people to get the vinyls if you can.
I can't see why Big Finish just can't sell the vinyl releases to their customers themselves. Companies in the UK shipping vinyl records overseas is not exactly a revolutionary idea in 2019, so why look for overseas distributors when you have a customer base already? I've been buying audio stories from Big Finish since 2000; on cassette, CD, download and vinyl, yet I can't buy these releases! (Apart from the HMV 'exclusives' as HMV do ship internationally.) As a marketing strategy it leaves a lot to be desired. Overseas customers are now second class citizens if they want to collect the vinyl LP's of Big Finish stories.
