Where can I get Secession stuff? Darn it, I've been hunting for Secession stuff for years. I only have the Magician on Hardest Hits. Does anyone know if there's anything else out there?

@ McCool

Secession do have one album called "A Dark Enchantment". It is obviously long out of print (I luckily have a copy). You could probably find it on Ebay, it usually goes for $75 US.

It is rumoured that "A Dark Enchantment" was going to be re-issued. Apparently the lead singer/songwriter (his name escapes me at the moment) passed away a number of years ago and they have had a hard time finding his widow...

I'm reading this list and agreeing with many of these selections. I won't bore anyone with repeating many of my favorites already on this list but one of my all time favorites were from the band, Secession (as mentioned here as well)

Secession: Michael
Secession: The Magician

I own the vinyl but can't find the cd for a reasonable price. Anyone recommend a good source?
