    I'd like to purchase Carl Davis's "The Silents," but it's only availible in England.

    How would I go around to ordering off of amazon.co.uk from the United States?

    Patrick, I don't understand your question. Have you tried ordering the CD from amazon.co.uk? That should work fine. I ordered a CD a few years ago from amazon.de with no problems.
    EDIT
    Patrick, are you trying to avoid ordering the disc from amazon.co.uk? If so, why?

    I've used amazon.co.uk and not had a problem. I also order from hmv.co.uk, though some say they're kind of high priced.

    Just register and place an order like you would for any US site. Your credit card company will convert the currency when the charge is processed. Rough conversion is £1 = $1.55.

    Direct ordering of imports is one of the great things about the Internet. I order probably 90% of my music from overseas (England, Australia, Singapore, Japan) and have not had any problems.

    Well, I was wondering how much of a hassle it is. I don't know how much it'll cost to ship the CD from the UK to here...if it's not an outrageous price, it'll be fine.

    From AmazonUK:

    North America Delivery Rates - Airmail
    Item For TOTAL price add these two columns
    Per Item Per Delivery
    CD £0.99 £2.09

    So, for one CD, you're looking at around $4.50 shipping.
