    Still the champ.

    One I see a lot (usually not at thrifts, but at other used CD stores) is the 1997 remaster of Kind of Blue.

    I always see U2 and Tigerlily is ubiquitous. Good call on that one.

    I use to work for a used CD store. The owner had a list of names we were not allowed to take due to the excessive amount we already had.

    1. Britney Spears
    2. Christina Aguilera
    3. Mariah Carey
    4. Celine Dion
    5. Enya

    We literally had 100s of CDs from these artists that we could not sell to save our lives. The rule was simple. Unless it was a brand new release, we refused them. We would also limit it to only two copies if it was less then 3 months old.

    U2 tends to be reasonably common.

    It's amazing how universal these are. I'm digging through used bins all the time and see almost all of the ones mentioned here, over and over.

    hmm... It looks like a lot from the 90s.

    Back in those days,
    I recall bunches of Boston “Don’t Look Back”.

    Also worth noting... most of the places I go to are charity shops with a religious bent of some kind.
    Salvation Army Thrift Store, MCC, Goodwill etc... so a high proportion of their used CDs seem to be Christian artists.

    Steve Bell (??)... this guy must have put out fifty titles... and they've all ended up in the used bins.

    Think many of you haven't really rummaged through bins lately. Shops haven't accepted used copies of Jagged Little Pill, The Sign and Cracked Rear View since around 1996.

    Anywhere there are secondhand CDs I always see....the thrills - so much for the city. They got a bit of a roasting in Ireland for trying to sound too American. I quiet liked the album. Some really well crafted songs on there.
