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.
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.
