Vertigo (Alfred Hitchcock – Original Soundtrack) by Bernard Herrmann Orchestra

Album Review:

The Bernard Herrmann Orchestra put together one of the best Hitchcock films scores in the Vertigo soundtrack. It really captures not only the feel of the movie but is a great collection of music on its own. The reviews seem to indicate that this is the original soundtrack and not a rerecorded version which makes this deal even sweeter.

2 Good 4 U by Michelle Penn

Tuesday, July 30th, 2013

Album Review:

Thought we ought to feature at least one of the $1.02 deals so we first looked at albums with reviews. Michelle Penn is a self-described chick rocker and has been influenced by Chrissie Hynde, Joan Jett, and Sheryl Crow. Her sophomore album 2 Good 4 U is a nice mixture of great melodies and lyrics with the right balance of rock and pop. Have a quick listen and pick up this bargain album for about a buck.

The #1’s by Diana Ross & The Supremes

Album Review:

The full impact of the legendary Diana Ross & The Supremes may not be fully measurable but their influence has been well established. As Motown Records’ premiere act in the 60s, The Supremes went on to record 12 number one singles on the Billboard Hot 100 and pave the way for many other vocal groups of the day. The #1’s by Diana Ross & The Supremes features a full album with 24 tracks that include some of solo work by lead singer Diana Ross like Where Did Our Love Go, Baby Love, Stop! In The Name Of Love, You Can’t Hurry Love, Reflections, Ain’t No Mountain High Enough and so many more. Just one of the $3.99 Greatest Hits Albums on sale right now.

Best Of The Doobies by The Doobie Brothers

Album Review:

The Doobie Brothers were often heard around the house when I was growing up and to this day, it’s hard not to start singing along to some of my favorites like, Listen To The Music, China Grove, and the #1 song and fan favorite Black Water. Best Of The Doobies features 11 of their best from the early years (1972-1976) and has already reached Diamond Record status by selling over 10,000,000 copies since it was first released. Pick up this classic and other Greatest Hits albums featured for $3.99.

Kick out the Jammies! by Various artists

Album Review:

Time for another Freebie Friday and this time we are featuring a Kids album (sort of). Kick out the Jammies! sounds more like Pop or Alternative Rock than kids music with artists like The Verve Pipe, Caspar Babypants, The Watson Twins, Recess Monkey and more. Add this fun album to your library for free.

Odd-and-Hodgepodge-Deals
Do you like a Challenge? Enjoy searching pages and pages to find the Diamond in the Rough? Then this deal may be for you. Amazon has over 950 albums (LPs, EPs, Collections and Singles) that are currently priced at $1.02 each. Looking over the list, you will not find a mainstream artist among them and to be honest, after sampling some of them, $1.02 may be asking too much for most of the offered albums. Still, there might be one or two of these bargain bin mark downs that are worth a listen depending on your tastes so if you have the time and the patience, take a stab and see what you find.
