The Tanita Tikaram debut. Can't remember what it's called.
I agree - it's a fantastic album!
I usually see this soundtrack EVERY TIME...
I always move the really common CDs to eye level, in hopes that the people actually looking for Faith Hill or Hootie and the Blowfish will get that inventory off the shelves and it can be replaced with something fresh.
One of my local shops has 9 copies of Adele's 21 that have taken up permanent residence in the 'just arrived' bin.
Anything by Chris Rea
I know that he has had some health issues, which means his US touring is impossible, but the few Chris Rea cds that I have stumbled across in my searchings, are excellent.
Never seen any of her albums in a used CD bin. Would of been nice if I had before I got them off of eBay since her CDs retail for a fairly high price in Australia.
Here in Italy you'll likely see copies of her other Warners CDs, especially "The Sweet Keeper" (sales were quite good but not as good as "Ancient Heart") and "Eleven Kinds of Loneliness" (which flopped). Another Tanita Tikaram album I've seen in second-hand shops is "Lovers in the City", which is one of her best.
The Blade movie soundtrack
I wish that were true in the U.S.
Chris is great!
One thing I see a whole lot is the Ally McBeal TV soundtrack CDs.
One of the local Goodwill type stores sells used CDs and the fixture is clogged with homemade mixtape CD-Rs, decades old software installation discs and computer games, and those off-brand classical music discs that reproduce when you're not looking, usually with water damaged artwork. Actual CDs, even the usual suspects, would be an upgrade.
A local store refuses to accept any more [CD] copies of it.
Been seeing Bruce Hornsby THE WAY IT IS. Boston CDs too.
How can you usually see something every time?
Every thrift store usually has a copy or two of Measure of a Man by Clay Aiken, lol!
Bowie Japan RCA CD
They never turn up, less charity worker gets. Record store staffs perks.
Since he was from American Idol I guess it some what fits here sine I was at a charity shop last week and most of the CD shelves were filled with a mariad of former Australian Idol contestants from like 2003-2006.
Amy Grant, Cher, Alanis Morissette,
Melissa Etheridge, Sheryl Crow,
Rick Astley, Clay Aiken, Gloria Estefan,
Toni Braxton, Shania Twain, Jennifer Hudson, Jordin Sparks...
...plus countless indie bands with names so colorless and dull as to evaporate from the brainpan as quickly as they are read.
Funny, I need that Victoria Williams comp for the Mike Scott song on it. Will your store send it to me for free with no shipping charge?
(Never thought I'd see anything with Mike Scott referred to as a used bin staple. Maybe they didn't listen far enough into the album?)
Never seen one in the bins (at least since I've been looking). I never see the EMI's with bonus tracks anymore. Even the 99 remasters aren't that common.
Bush 16 Stone and Razorblade Suitcase
Just because I don't see it, I can't assume it is or isn't there as I don't look at every single CD.
Always always always David Gray - White Ladder...
Being in charge of CD's in the store I work at I see tons of tendencies... A lot of late 90's pop rock/mainstream "alternative rock" and that sort of thing... So many people bought so many of the same things.
R.E.M. - Up is another one... And whoever Starsailor was/is people used to love those guys it seems.
