Hey all, I'm trying to get hold of a copy of Chas. Colins' Lip Flexibilites after I lent mine to someone who has since disappeared off the face of the earth. Now this is annoying but I thought I'd treat myself to another copy... and so the saga begins.... After casting around for a bit on t'internet I came across someone selling them on ebay. Apparently he had 30-odd in stock for a reasonable Buy It Now price, so I went for it. After three weeks of waiting I messaged the vendor who told me he didn't have any in stock but would be 'getting some in the next few days'. After waiting another week I told him to stuff it. Negative feedback left and (eventually) refund obtained but now I'm back to square one. Incidentally - this guy is trading as sheetmusiconline on ebay. Don't trust him - he was advertising stock he didn't have and I only found this out after I had chased him for my order. Not recommended. So I cast around again, and find the Boosey and Hawkes sheet music site is advertising them. Again I order and immediately get an email (after I've given card details etc) saying they don't have any in stock... So, I guess I'm asking two things (sorry for the ramble - I'm getting there!). Firstly, does anyone actually have a copy of Charles Colins' Advanced Lip Flexibilities that they can sell to me? I'd prefer new but I'd pay the right price for a lightly used version. Secondly, why is this book so difficult to get hold of? Is it out of print? I remember when I was a young impressionable teenager, being told by my tutor that this is one of the staples of any brass player's reference books - so surely there is some sort of market for it, but from my experience no-one seems particularly bothered to sell anyone one. Has it gone out of fashion? Is there a 'better' alternative?
