With the number of Shirley Bassey items (articles) that can be ordered there,
without the various artists sampler.
The numbers are a snapshot from January 2001 and vary,
and they can't always deliver what they promise,
but the numbers can give you an idea about the size of the assortment.
German links First some German online shops I'm using normally:

helped me to communicate with other fans and to collect all the information
on this site. I highly recommend this software.
