Another Retail Discount: MP3s Slashed in Price

I got off to a late start working on my annual “different” music list. I have about 10 discs this year that qualify, and I wanted to see what I missed over the last few months.

One thing that surprise dme were the number of discs I went to check out that they were all available in MP3 format at Amazon — 50 Albums for $5 dollars or less.

At the same price, I prefer the physical format — but at $5 and under, the MP3s are a no brainer.

Amazon has a number of promotions going on. One is 25 days of free holiday music in MP3 formats. I downloaded Calling on Mary by Aimee Mann, Midnight Clear by Andreas Vollenweider, Ave Maria by Heart, Coming Home For Christmas w/Victoria Shaw… by Jim Brickman.

And if you haven’t grabbed these freebies, do so:

100 Days, 100 Nights (Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings)

Strange Overtones (by David Byrne and Brian Eno)

Here’s a few highlights from the increasing selection of reasonably priced ($5.00) downloads:
