We have discovered that your great grand aunt's former husband moved to Nigeria and amounted a $200 million fortune and that you are the inheritor in the will. However as death duty in Nigeria is 98% we suggest that you use our services to legally protect and transfer the money. Be assured that our charges will be very sensible.
Thank you very much for suggesting barcoderobot.
I have been amazed by the power of an EAN in Goole searches for very obscure releases.
I tried Jesus2099's tools but found that some links were outdated and others were unfriendly to Google Translate and my Japanese just isn't.
Where would I find other lists of tools?
How about a reminder for editors on the Add Release/"Edit Note" page for barcoderobot if an amazon link but no bar-code has been entered?
EDIT: CDjournal (recomended by Jesus2099) did find some very obscure releases. And with Google Translate open in another window alongside it is very easy to use.
EDIT: BarCodeRobot wants me to pay to get a single EAN.
