Um, yes... (cackle)...the one disc I have of theirs is an import
obtained from Rhino Records in West Los Angeles:

Thomas D'Urfey's Pills to Purge Melancholy, Lewd Songs and Low Ballads
from the 18th Century, the City Waits.  SayDisc CD-SDL-382, 1990.
There's a sticker on the back that says it was imported through 
Qualiton Imports, Ltd. in New York. You might try calling information in
New York to find Qualiton Imports-- but I'm told that once you get the
little serial number one can order anything if it's in print.

On the other hand, on the back of the disc it says: Saydisc Records,
Chipping Manor, THe Chipping, Wotton-under-edge, Glos. GL12 7AD. Why not
write them directly?

Just as the title says: hilarious, a rollicking performance and alas,
sadly out of SCA period.
