    Went back to the library sale today and there was another box of classical (got only an opera yesterday). They keep putting more out from the back room, so I grabbed classical and pop totalling $26 for 13 sets. I took 7 sets to Dearborn Music and the young lady offered me $13. My jaw nearly dropped, but the owner was there and he said she could offer me more and told her, because many were double disk sets, to give me $25. Whew! So it came out that for the dollar difference I got to keep 4 sets. Oh but I spent one more dollar while at Dearborn Music. Here is my haul:

    Library net cost $1 for all this:





    And one from Dearborn Music dollar bin (two disk set):

    Third trip to the library sale where CDs are half off, so these were $1 each:



    Tchaikovsky


    Ok, I am a sucker for Beethoven Ninths!
    Symphonic Festival Orchestra and Choir (Orchestra), Magdalena Paloczaj (soprano), Eva Bandova (alto), Peter Kottwald (tenor), Josef Bacek (bass), Alberto Lizzo (Conductor). Could be a dud?


    Don't know this work but the names are big. And a work with three female voices representing the three female vocal ranges is awesome!


    No idea what I am getting into with this, but for a buck...

    I don't know why but I feel like I'm at the Vienna New Year concert.

    Oh wait, I got it.

    It was GBP 10, let's call that somewhere between USD 16 (under normal circumstances) and USD 2,000,000.

    It was GBP 15 eighteen months ago and I asked them if there was any wiggle room, to which they declined saying it was a comparable price to GoogleLand. I wanted to retort that I was not in GoogleLand but in their store but desisted.
    This time it was on the sale rack so I decided to take it. I don't think I'll be buying many more CD's once I move into the mountains so am allowing a few purchases recently.
