Blast it, Amazon! (plus, a mini-shopping spree)

Amazon.com has gone and done it again: 1500 $5 mp3 albums for the month of May.  This one is sure to cause my month music budget to balloon exponentially.

After the first pass through the list, I added the following to my wish list:

  • Amon Amarth - Surtur Rising
  • The Band - Music From Big Pink
  • Creedence Clearwater Revival - (self titled)
  • Creedence Clearwater Revival - Bayou Country
  • Creedence Clearwater Revival - Cosmo's Factory
  • Creedence Clearwater Revival - Green River
  • Creedence Clearwater Revival - Pendulum
  • Creedence Clearwater Revival - Willy And The Boys
  • John Denver - Different Directions
  • John Denver - The Flower That Shattered The Stone
  • John Denver - Higher Ground
  • Steve Earle - Jerusalem
  • Steve Earle - The Revolution Starts...Now
  • Steve Earle - Transcendental Blues
  • John Fogerty - The Blue Ridge Rangers Rides Again
  • Ben Harper - Fight For Your Mind
  • Ben Harper - Lifeline
  • Ben Harper - Welcome to the Cruel World
  • Emmylou Harris - Blue Kentucky Girl
  • Emmylou Harris - Elite Hotel
  • Emmylou Harris - Luxury Liner
  • Emmylou Harris - Pieces of the Sky
  • Paul McCartney - Band On The Run
  • The Very Best of Otis Redding
  • The Rolling Stones - Black And Blue
  • The Stills-Young Band - Long May You Run (incorrectly credited to Neil Young)
  • Neil Young - Sleeps With Angels
Obviously, I'm not going to buy all of them, but even if I buy, say, half, that's still a bit of spending.

Also, today I bought the following used records while looking for the new Paul Simon album on vinyl:
  • Steve Earle & The Dukes - Exit 0
  • Emerson, Lake, & Palmer - Works Volume I
  • Waylon Jennings - Are You Ready For The Country
  • Waylon Jennings & Willie Nelson - Waylon & Willie (I already have this one on CD; it's easily my favorite country album.)
Not bad for $15.

  1. Why some people shop on iTunes is beyond me.
