The first time someone asked me about a Canadian version of Sound & Spirit, I blithely suggested they try BMG Music Service Canada. The next time, I looked myself. The good news is that the order numbers are the same. The bad news is that BMG Music Service Canada offers very few Christian recordings. Newsboys? Never heard of them. Amy Grant? Four albums--whereas the U.S. club has fourteen. The Echoing Green? Keith Green? Steve Green? What, are you joking?
BMG Music Service Canada's site says that the available selections for Canadians are sometimes different because of the music companies' arrangements for distribution in different countries. I suspect that this is not the whole story, and would suggest that Canadians lobby BMG Music Service Canada to let them know that there is a demand for Christian music.
Don't think that Mammon didn't whisper about what a wonderful service I could provide to Canadian brothers and sisters. Service, yeah, that's the ticket. But I just can't do it.
Sure. Customer service phones are staffed weekdays, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the U.S., 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Canada. Both are Eastern Time.
First of all, please do not write to me. I have no affiliation whatsoever with BMG or Sound & Spirit. I am not even a member. So while I am sympathetic if they didn't send what you ordered/they sent something you didn't order/you can't get off their list/they screwed up in billing/they're threatening to throw you in prison until you pay the last penny, I can't do anything about it.
