so where can i buy Cd's without paying £15 each

If you really, really want to avoid 'mainstream rubbish', I recommend CD-Baby. I love their ethos - [In•de•pen•dent: (adj.) Not having sold one's life, career, and creative works over to a corporation.]!

Personally I use I tunes , just about anything you could want and non of the clutter of of cds. I know people have problems with the protection applied to their stuff but I honestly never notice, I buy it, it goes on the Ipod , I listen, seem ok to me.
