This is somewhat off topic, so I apologize in advance.

Someone has asked me to recommend a site for comparing prices for classical
music CDs. I know of Google's Froogle and Yahoo Shopping, but these don't
really allow for sophisticated searches (e.g., searching by label, composer,
performer, name of composition, conductor, etc.). I am hoping that the site
will allow for multi-field searching and the ability to compare prices for
different online merchants. Yahoo Shopping used to allow for an advanced
classical music search and price comparison, but now they only allow for the
price comparisons. Can anyone recommend something more comprehensive?

I'd like to suggest another site for comparing book prices -
www.bestbookbuys.com. I like it better than addall.
