Service rating : Feed back on process was appreciated.Product rating : Amazing music
Service rating : Simply good.Product rating : Just exellent.
Service rating : The only complaint, or rather comment, I have is that it would be good to know which items you have in stock beforehand. Apparently one or both of my ordered items weren't, since it took more than a month for them to reach my mailbox (I received the package this week).Product rating : Two energetic gigs with great sound and excellent songs. Really adds to their studio output.
Finale prices in euros are really expensive, even when compared with direct amazon.jp, although the latter depends on the rates of customs in each country (which vary each year). However, very good deal and products
Although it usually takes a bout a month to get the CDs I order, the service is good, considering the CD is coming from the other side of the world. Even with the exchange and shipping, I fiund CDs ordered from Farside a rea little cheaper than if I order directly from Amazon.jp or the like. Paul Fischer is a very knowledgeable and helpful person as well. He always has been responsive and helpful to my questions.
Service rating : Far Side has always been a dependable source of items impossible to find in the states. Their service and range of product is fabulous.Product rating : What a joy these DVDs are! Nicely packaged, wonderful visuals and a close up view of one of kabuki's grand masters. Wish there were some English subtitles but the visuals compensate. I'm so glad Far Side offered this set.
Will keep coming back to FarSide. They bring the eastern music and culture conveniently to the NearSide. It's your one-stop shop!

Service rating : I always receive outstanding service from Far Side MusicProduct rating : I found the Nizaemon DVDs fascinating - but it helps if you understand Japanese, as there's no English on them at all!
I had a large order and Paul Fisher kept me updated about the status of items. When he found out that a disc was going to go missing, he made a special effort to give me an alternate choice - free! - and it arrived shortly thereafter.
The discs - I ordered only DVDs - all arrived safely and were in perfect condition.
Good price, Fast delivery, Knowledgeable staff, Great communications - What more do you want. Wish other companies could be up to this high standard.
Service rating : Received my CD today Feb 9th in perfect condition. I was surprised that there was a transaction charge on my VISA card. It was only 75 cents U.S. but it would be good to reflect that on the billing listing. +Product rating : The CD was in perfect new condition. I started listening to it ten minutes after the postman delivered it. It made me cry. Beautiful. I only wish I could read Japanese. Charlotte Olsen- West Allis, Wisconsin, USA.

Service rating : I have been a Far Side customer for many years because of their outstanding selection of hard-to-find, high quality DVDs and CDs on traditional Japanese arts. Paul offers some of the best item descriptions in the business. Online ordering is easy via PayPal, and order delivery is prompt. As a bonus, customer service is personalized, prompt and thoughtful.Product rating : Hard to find DVD, top-notch production that includes outstanding English audio commentary by Paul Griffith.
Service rating : Far Side Music is without doubt the single-most comprehensive World Music retail business on the planet. The layers and depth of selection are ever hugely impressive.Product rating : Wonderfully authentic example of this genre, including 3 vocal pieces that are highly individualistic in their composition, one of which (CD 1) plays as wonderfully as a symphonic ode with both male and female chorus. CD 3 includes two instrumental pieces that become absolutely thunderous as they go forward with a quite majestic effect.
