Bing Crosby: Swinging on a Star – $1.29 from Google Play

Google Play never ceases to amaze me with their great deals. Currently, they have a unique 94 track Bing Crosby collection available for just $1.29. I picked this one up with some google survey credits and listened to it at work. While the recordings are a little raw, the overall feel was great from one of the most recognizable crooners in history.

Six Year Anniversary Today

July 2nd, 2016

Number6
Six years ago today, the first MP3 Pla.net post was written laying the ground work for what would become a daily assignment: Find the best Music Download Deals and share. Over the years, the digital music landscape has changed considerably. What used to be a guarantee that there would be a daily album deal from Amazon soon faded away and even the one off odd discounts were harder to find. This year, Google Play has done their part to keep the great and many times free deals alive. However, there is no longer the availability to warrant a daily post.

MP3 Pla.net will be entering a new stage in which we will only post the deals that really stand out from the rest and leave the other filler deals out of the blog. With this new direction, the number of posts will likely decrease so that we can better bring you the deals that really matter. It has been an amazing six years since we began this crazy ride and we are hoping for at least another six more. We want to offer our thanks to those of you that visit and read the deals. You are truly the reason for our efforts and by cutting back the number of posts, we hope to better bring you the deals that you are looking for.

The Best Of The Gap Band by The Gap Band

Album Review:

In 1967, the Greenwood, Archer and Pine Street Band shortened their name to The Gap Band and went on to to a music career that would last more than 40 years. Charlie, Ronnie, and Robert Wilson play the funk which has always been more about getting people on the dance floor. The Best Of The Gap Band features almost 70 minutes of their best on 13 tracks including You Dropped A Bomb On Me, Outstanding, Burn Rubber On Me (Why You Wanna Hurt Me), Yearning For Your Love, Early In The Morning, I Don’t Believe You Want To Get Up And Dance (Oops Up Side Your Head), and more.

Already Dead by Timeshares

Album Review:

Another OneSideDummy artist is in the spotlight today. Sophomore release Already Dead by Timeshares is a solid follow up to even though it may not even sound like the same band. While starting off somewhat mellow, most of the album is the alternative punk sound to finish it off. As it is getting near the end of the month, this release may not be on sale much longer.

Kick Your Bass Techno, Vol. 1 by Various artists

Album Review:

I don’t think that Techno Tuesday will catch on but Kick Your Bass Techno, Vol. 1 is a recent Dance & Electronic compilation from Mystical Wings Audio and features three hours of music on just 26 track (almost 7 minutes per track average). While there are no known hits on this release, sometimes a long collection of unknown is just what is needed to through on and power through ones task list.

Ours Is Chrome by Superheaven

Album Review:

Ours Is Chrome is the second full length album from the band Superheaven (formally Daylight) released by Side One Dummy Records and is reminiscent of the Seattle grunge scene of the nineties. This consistent effort has hit a chord with fans of the Pennsylvanian band and recently dropped in price to just $3.99 making it the perfect time to see if Superheaven deserves a spot in your collection.
