Day 253-- CDs I'm trying to ditch

So the CD purge is almost complete. I have the ones I'm going to keep; a few more I know I'll be able to trade in for cash at FYE, and a stack that FYE doesn't seem to want. So maybe--just maybe--my friends will want them?

If you see something here you'd like, I'll take a dollar for it. If you want to offer more, I'm game, but I have no desire to take more than three dollars for a CD. That feels like robbery (especially considering some of the--eek!--CDs).

Many of these are obscure; not only did I make it a goal to get every CD by a band I liked, I would also scour used CD stores for stuff that looked interesting. Sometimes it work, sometimes it didn't. I wanted to link all of the titles to info about the albums or write up some layman's blurb for each band ("summer-y country rock!" "angry girls from the '90s!" "terrible local emo!")...but this is just too much work right now.

(PS--one or two, maybe just Keith or Scott, might question why I'm getting rid of my favorite's because I have another copy of it!)

Jason! I would gladly give you dollars for the Afghan Wigs - Black Love and the Raveonettes... then again, if you highly recommended something to me from your list, you could probably get a few more dollars out of me.

They Might Be Giants, Lost & Found (speedwood rules!) and John Hiatt have to be worth a buck apiece. Will you ship to Seattle?

hey i will give a dollar next week if you could hold for me:

Matthew Sweet (your favorite, which you have a copy of already)
Built to Spill

but if you think they are not worth it, then we can chat. I maybe don't know a whole lot about these albums but I enjoy the artists themselves. Either way, we will talk next week when I am in town.

I will definitely ship to Seattle, Martin--I just ask that you pay the postage (which shouldn't be much).

At 2:09 PM, Blogger John Baldauff said...
