Still Buying That Obsolete Technology-- Part 1

This most recent trip to Springfield, Illinois, between the Wal-Mart on Route 66 across from the TraveLodge where we were staying and the Best Buy out to the west of town, off Veterans Parkway, Il. Route 4, I ended up buying six CDs, although I definitely could have bought a lot more at BB (I'm spmewhat trying to "cut back" these days).

I bought two at Wal-Mart:

Hank Williams, Jr. Greatest Hits (one CD, 22 hits)--  I've been trying to find a CD with more hits on it than 10-12 to replace my one on the Ultimate CD jukebox.

Dance With Me--  Best of Orleans--  I went fishing through that $5 box out in the aisles.  It's like a treasure hunt.

BEST BUY:

The Best of the Shangri-Las--  As the blurb says: "The course of true love has never run smoothly, but few girls ever suffered so much tragedy as the Shangri-Las.  Pver the course of a mere three years, Mary, Betty, Marge and Mary-Ann endured enough heartache, heartbreak, sadness, sorrow, disaster and death to turn them off to romance forever.

They watched one boyfriend die in a head-on motorcycle accident, saw another drafted to Vietnam, dumped a third because his kisses weren't sweet enough, lost their mother and their innocence..."

As I mentioned before, we listened to this one all Tuesday and for a bunch of the next day driving along Route 66.
