Another Borders is closing (as is the entire franchise) so that means some halfway decent deals are available if you know what to look for. For instance, a lot of their CDs go for around $18.99 so even at 30% off that's not really a very good deal. I found these at budget prices (and one at 50% off) so they were worth it.

A used copy of Alice Cooper's Muscle of Love on vinyl with all of the original packaging still intact. I bought this new back when it first came out in 1973 but for some reason I threw away the cardboard box it came packaged in and used the book cover that also came with it (silly me). That left me with a record sleeve and the album itself, neither of which have stood up too well over the years.

I remember catching some shit from a friend when I first bought this on vinyl back in '76. All because I told him I was tore between John Prine's Common Sense and Free-For-All. Despite my love and appreciation for all things Prine, all these years later I still think I made the right decision. Sometimes a body just needs to rock and to this day, I still don't own Common Sense (I need to fix that).

was at waldbaums supermarket ystday, waiting to cash in change at the coin machine...helped an older couple with the coin machine as they never used it before, and there was a rack of cheap cds...bought -warren zevon, excitable boy and -oasis, dont believe the truth for 5.99 each, thats good. so, went with an old record and a newer one 2005. oasis record is pretty good, good songs, recorded really well, diff vibes diff songs, zak starkey on drums, its sparing, held back and then rocks at certain times when needed. the cover band i see alot plays alot of warren zevon and ofcourse when -lawyers, guns and money always came on the radio, gotta blast that song loud. good song, great riff.

An album produced by Ian Gillan in 1972

Jerusalem+-+Front.jpg

This is the first album by Jerusalem, a band which excites me very much; they are rough, raw and doomy with their own strong identity. As they are young and a bit green, they don't follow many rules, so their material is almost crude - but still immensely powerful in content. I believe that, whenever possible, the work of writers and players in their formative stages should be recorded; before inhibition and self-consciousness set in, before fire and aggression die down, and while they are still absorbing influences and doing things which others might consider 'uncool'. Most important though, before they might develop that self-imposed rigidity which afflicts so many. I hope none of these things happen to Jerusalem, we'll have to wait and see, this album is just in case. I hope you like it as much as I do." - Ian Gillan

I could have tried holding off until they get up to 50 or 60% off but I would imagine it'd be long gone by then.

I have taken advantage of their sale a couple of times in the past couple of weeks. I am going back today but like you said, not much will be there if it is up to half price. Now at least their prices on cd's are reasonable.

Agreed, given that the majority of their CDs are priced at around $18. There were a couple of John Lennon Anthology boxes in there but someone already snatched them up. It's funny, when the sale first started and prices were something like 20-30% off I overheard a conversation about a fight breaking out between a couple folks. That first day people were buying all kinds of stuff just because they had the word "sale" on the brain. The only things I got were a few magazines which were already up to 50% off.

My old CD of this got damaged beyond repair (never ever lend your music out to anyone, especially your idiot brother in law).............so I bought the deluxe version via Amazon.
