    I saw a Jimi Hendrix Live Monterey for $5.00.

    Also at my local Walmart they must have about 50-60 copies each of AC DC Back In Black and Black Ice. I wonder if they think they will sell them all.

    If anything, it's gotten worse with age!

    Buying CDs off Amazon for one cent and paying the shipping is a better deal.

    I saw one by Gary Lewis and The Playboys The 60s) that caught my eye one time.

    Some of those decades comps from Sony are originals if Sony has a distribution deal with the artists or if Sony owns the rights to the material, others are budget live recordings. The Dean Martin comp in the '60s series on Sony is worthwhile as those are Reprise originals.

    I think the Gary Lewis and The Playboys one is live recordings.

    Now you know to be careful when you buy these decades comps from Sony. The Pablo Cruise and Tiffany volumes are live recordings as well (Universal owns the right to the originals of these acts). The Janis Joplin and Pure Prairie League volumes are original, the same with the Outlaws comp in the 70s series. Bob Dylan ones are original. Watch what you are buying when it comes to these decades comps. You are right that the Gary Lewis comp is a live recordings comp as Universal owns the rights to the originals.

    Good to know that about the Pablo Cruise one, as I have a friend who is a fan.
    Saw it in the bin while I was searching.

    The Pablo Cruise best of comp in print to get is the Millennium Collection. BTW, lots of the CDs formerly available as the 10 Best series and 10 Great Songs series on EMI have been reissued as Millennium Collection comps by Universal. Please look at the fine print in the copyright area before buying these decades comps.

    If you don't have it yet, there's a DVD videos version of it too. Along with a great selection of music videos, there's an easter egg that allows you to see alternate videos as well.

  19. Fogerty's Premonition has shown up for $5 at Target stores. I've been disappointed by the last couple of $5 bin refreshes at Walmart. Their music buyer must have some very specific tastes that lean toward hard rock from the late 70s and early 80s.

    A better selection of $5 CDs for this forum's tastes have been appearing at Barnes & Noble of all places. A lot of deep catalog selections from well-known Rock and Pop artists.

    As I am pretty much the only one in my department that handles the CD's at Walmart, I negotiated with my music rep so I could keep the $5 value bin CD's together after they removed the bin. I was able to convince him to let me use an 8 foot section of racks & it's quite popular with my customers. They love not having to dig to search for CD's. I even alphabetized them to make it even easier. I did this because when I work, I think like a buyer to be more in touch with my customer's needs. I also like to spotlight the later $5 additions at the top. I have great customers that appreciate me & what I do & that's awesome!

    Good for you Billoneeg. There are no $5 bins anymore in the Richmond area that I know of. I do agree w/Phantom. B&N is a good place to shop for presents for my friends in regard to the bargain bins.

    Agree on Barnes & Noble. I've been raiding everyone I drive by for a few months now and most have a great 4.99, 7.99, and 9.99 section. Some examples... That Duran Duran cd mentioned a few posts up for 4.99, lots of Neil Young at all 3 price points, Pink Floyd remasters at both 7.99 and 9.99 price points including 2-cd Umma Gumma, various Allmans cd's at 4.99, lots of Genesis at 7.99, some Yes at 4.99 and 7.99, Little Feat 5-cd Original Albums Series and 2-cd waiting For Columbus at 9.99 each. I could go on and on. The odd thing is that all the stores that sell cd's have these 3 price points but not price the discs the same. I saw some stores that might sell a disc at 9.99 and another that would sell the same one at 7.99. And vice versa. Not all stores had the same merchandise either though many you could see mostly everywhere. Some sections are very small, others very large. Recommended that you check out a local store or two.

  24. It's getting tougher and tougher to find $5 CD bins at Walmart. The only ones I know of are at the Super Walmarts with plenty of extra floor space.

    In Ontario, Canada I recently picked up Bryan Adams Reckless (remaster), the Nashville (Robert Altman's film) soundtrack and Prince's 1999. Also seen the Ghostbusters (1984 film version) reissue soundtrack.
