Joshua Bell's latest album?

May 10, 2004 at 09:52 PM · Hello :) I live in Canada and I can't seem to find Joshua Bell's latest album "Romance of the Violin." I checked A+B Sound, HMV, Best Buy even and a couple others, no such luck. I could just order it online but I was wondering if any music stores here sold his album.

May 10, 2004 at 03:32 PM · yah, I did check the classical section, the girl checked her computer, no such luck. The only one I found at A + B Sound was his "west side story" album which appeared to have very few songs and was listed under Bernstein and not bell.

Check A&B online again. Their search engine is so bad that it won't find a symphony simply because it's abbreviated as 'sym' in the title line of the data record.

When I do a search in the classical search page ( using only 'Bell' as the performer, there's one with the title ".romance Of The Violin". Unfortunately there's no image or details, but perhaps you could phone them again with this lead.

the CD is also available at, but I buy from A&B whenever possible (despite the horrendous search engine) because they always have the best price among Canadian places, online & otherwise.

Christina, I'll give A + B a call and check with them again. I didn't think it would be this hard to get ahold of.

Thanks for all your help :D

Oh and I almost forgot, I compiled a Joshua Bell site, it's still a work in progress, I just started. But take a look and tell me what you think.

May 14, 2004 at 06:44 PM · ahaha, anti-Bell *gasps*! I've been setup :p well if I can't find it at a and b I will definitely check out Thank-you!

May 14, 2004 at 08:54 PM · Your welcome. Hurry now, before Bell's CD goes on back order at Amazon and you'll have to wait along time for them to get more in. I heard this CD is selling like Hot Cakes. Just Kidding with you Jolene!.
