I went shopping last Monday, 25/08/14.
The Warehouse had some new titles in.
I went mad.
6x 10 CD boxes @ $20 each, all 40's-60's American, lots of names I've never heard of, which in this context is a good!
1x 3 CD box @ $10 each, seems to be 3 separate 2000's Flamenco CDs repackaged. Modern but traditional, not "Fusion" diluted stuff.
63 CDs at $130 = $2.06 each.
I will probably already have maybe up to 20% of these tracks, but at that price WTF, or "dafuq?" as I saw in Urban Dictionary recently :-)
Now the question arises: How do I find out what of this music I already have?
I am an extremely intelligent, witty and fascinating guy.
