The cost of international shipping is the same for 1 or 2 single LP's, 1 or 2 CD's and then 3 to 8 CD's.

Notice regarding shipping and transit times:

Due to the current global situation, transit times for domestic and international packages has increased. Foreign packages that normally take 1-3 weeks have taken as much as three months (or more) to arrive. While some packages are still arriving fairly quickly, I ask that anyone placing an order to please be patient. Transit times of other packages that may have arrived sooner have no bearing on how fast or slow the next package will be received. Tracking numbers do not always update once a package leaves the USA. I have no control over this or insight as to when your package may arrive. If this is a problem, please do not place an order. Thank you.

Guadalcanal Diary was formed in Marietta, GA in 1981. They were tagged as part of the Jangle Pop movement and often compared to fellow Georgia band R.E.M., which was due in part to sharing producer Don Dixon. After an independent debut EP in 1983, the band released their first full length album Walking In The Shadow Of The Big Man on DB records. A music video was produced for the song Watusi Rodeo and submitted as part of the MTV show Basement Tapes. The video caught the attention of Elektra records, who offered the band a recording contract and reissued the LP in 1985. It quickly became a college radio favorite and remains an appreciated Alternative classic.
