Get them from another seller, Towers has quite a few of them, to name just one. There is a recent post on where to buy Chesky on AA.

I believe Tower.com is still in business. Certainly its website is operating and contains current promotional material The stores, at least the ones in LA, closed at the end of 2006 (I know, because I bought over 100 CD albums in the close-out), but its not inconceivable that the online operation can make a profit. Berkshire Record Outlet has been in business for years, first as a catalog outfit and now primarily as an online retailer, and it sells only classical music (a small fraction of all CD sales). Not sure if Tower.com is still owned by the old Tower or whether it was sold to a new owner in the bankruptcy.
o.k. at least now I know I wasn't the only one...
Chesky screwed me out of $60 or so over a year ago; I placed an order over the phone and never received my discs.. called numerous times and was always told the marketing person I needed to talk to "was in a meeting". When I finally spoke to her, she promised to send the discs and never did. Chesky recordings sound great but I'll NEVER do business with them again.
I also will never order directly from Chesky again. At the end of December, 2005, I responded to an e-mail offer from them with a free CD to be included if 2 or more were purchased. After 6 weeks, the CD's I had purchased arrived. E-mails and calls to them about the missing CD got no response. Since I received the CD's I actually wanted (the free one was not that desirable to me), I let it go.
Frankly, I have purchased nothing made by Chesky from any source since.
I do not know whether it was my direct letter to Chesky from a email I got from the AA site or all this negative publicity however I received all the Chesky disks I ordered plus several sampler CDs one with some tests on it plus 10-12 musical cuts thrown in.I think the online ordering from Chesky doesn ot link one up to the proper sources in terms of actual ordering direct.Hopefully that is fixed now.I lost the email addrsss however if you go to the AA site under music or general & punch in my moniker Audiopath49 you will come to the recent link that gives Chesky's direct email.Sorry my regular maintenance got rid of the email address however you should be able to find it on AA.
