Re: Where to get Chess på Svenska cheaper than Dress Circle
The original topic was closed on account of the poster looking for where to get it for *free* as opposed to for cheap, but as an alternative to illegal downloading, anyone interested in Chess på Svenska but not willing to pay Dress Circle's/Sound of Music's prices may want to check out ordering it directly from Sweden at a site called Megastore (formerly Skivhugget). I've ordered both my CD and DVD through them -- their shipping prices are very reasonable, and the service is incredible. Product links follow.

And, for those with high-end audio systems...

there is always EBAY as well. I have seen it come up like once a year. I do not speak Sweedish, so I have never bothered to buy it. I prefer my stuff to be in English. Of course Der Klein Franz is an exception because this song has always been in a foreign language. Also you might get it cheap as a digital download from amazon or Itunes (if they are there--never checked).
You also get if free with a MONTHlY PAID LEGAL SUBSCRIPTION SERViCE where you pay like $20/mo. But then again, I am not even sure about this. Some services of unlimited downloading for $20/mo. And other services put a CAP on how much you can download. Please check with your local subscription service. Napster and Imesh are all LEGAL to them being subscription services and are NO LONGER peer to peer. They were shutdown. Napster was sued when it was a peer-to-peer. But they paid their fine and now they are legit service.
Now, the one thing you could do is go a friends house who has the CD. If you keep on going to his house too many times, he might just give you the CD. If someone in your NUCLEAR FAMILY has a copy, they can just burn a copy for for you since they are your family, especially if it belongs to your mom or dad.
Pretty soon the government will say DO NOT MAKE MIX TAPES OR CD's. This would be STUPID. If I want someone to know my taste of music, I give them a mix tape or CD. Most of my friends listen to jazz, rapp, or punk rock. I like to influence them with my musical theater. I give them mixed cd's. Now, I would NOT make a mix tape with Blink 182 and put a song from Chess on it. That would not go with the flow. I did that once in one of my Mix tapes---it was weird. Dude, if someone was SO interested in CHESS and they were my best friend, I would just burn a copy because it is sooo important to me. But then again, making mixed CD's are OK because why would they mass produce music CDR's then? 4.5 billion people in this world are NOT recording artist. Maybe 50,000 people in this world are recording artist. If I include local bands maybe there are only 2,000,000 recording artist. But 2 milllion compares nothing to 4.5 billion people. IF you go to Frys Electronics or staples, they sell them in 100 pack canisters. Do you really think they just want us to use it for backup purposes only? By no means. It is for sharing music. If the government did not want us to do that then they would be a cease and desist order on making cdr-s, but they will not do that because we cannot stop progress. Now, you can still get sued by a record company. But technically, the only one to blame is the government for for sending out this double-edged sword. We know it is wrong to share the music over p2p. But when a physical entity such as a person or ipod unit is there, how can we know it is is wrong/? We can't. i think even at one time Apple Ipods could even do an ipod to ipod transfer with the classic models. Apple is even starting to lift the copy protection from their music Itunes store. It has always been a personal battle--a civil rivilary, if you will--the music industry versus the computer industry. The music industry is scared they will stop making money. The computer industry loves it because they are making sales from these little gadgets. So in the end, do we know what is really legal? Probably not. We had to wait for like 5 or more people to get sued to find out it was not right to to share music over the p2p. But let us go back to the mix tape or mixed compilations. Doesn't like almost 1:100 people make a mixed cd or play it in their friends car? heck, my friends want my mixed cd's, I would give it to them. We make these CDs as gifts, thinking of you times, personal use, to tell us about ourselves to our friends, and many other purposes. If we are not to burn CD's, the computer industry should not create software that burns music. But that would be proposterous. WE would be going backwards.
