Do you remember when CD’s were expensive?

I sure do. And they still are, if you buy them new. There are a ton of used CD stores around though, including Book & Music Exchange in Owensboro. That’s where my parents-in-law live, and every time we go to visit I have to stop at that store. They always have some bizarre deal, and this time was no different. All CD’s with an orange sticker cost $2, or 20 for $10. Yep, fifty cents each. I didn’t look through every stack, but I found 20 that I wanted. Some alternative, some pop, some punk, and a few “hard rock” that are usable for my radio show.

I picked up the following, and got them all for a 10-spot.

  • 24-7 Spyz This Is…24-7 Spyz
  • Gilby Clarke Swag
  • Culture Club The Best Of
  • EMF Schubert Dip
  • Saigon Kick The Best Of
  • Saigon Kick The Lizard
  • Richie Sambora Undiscovered Soul
  • Joe Satriani Joe Satriani
  • Semisonic Feeling Strangely Fine
  • Sex Pistols The Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle
  • Tommy Shaw 7 Deadly Zens
  • Shaw/Blades Hallucination
  • Kenny Wayne Shepherd Trouble Is…
  • Britney Spears …Baby One More Time
  • Britney Spears Oops!…I Did It Again
  • Britney Spears Britney
  • Spin Doctors Pocket Full Of Kryptonite
  • Stuttering John Stuttering John
  • Toadies Rubberneck
  • The Zoo Shakin’ The Cage

I think I got a pretty good deal…what do you think?

  1. Not bad. I wish I had a used CD store a little closer, though I did pick up a few cheap old CDs at Book Off in New York when I went holiday sight-seeing this week.

  2. We have a few shops around here, but none have insane deals like this. With the exception of The Zoo, every one of those artists is pretty recognizable. And they were all a half buck! I almost went for 40 for $20…maybe I should have.

  3. Man I emptied some kegs on the beach to Siagon and EMF.
