If you miss the “good old days” of sifting through racks filled with LPs (or even CDs), hunting for a bargain disc or an elusive track, today’s deal may bring a tear to your eye, and I mean that in both ways.
On the good side, it’s from Tower - one of the bigger shops back in the day - before the Interwebs, clogged tubes and the immediate gratification of click-and-buy. It almost feels good to be giving my money to them again, even if it doesn’t lack that tactile, carry-it-home-in-a-yellow-bag feel.
On the less-pleasant side, they still make you sift through far too many titles (749 to be exact) to find the good Blu-ray bargains. No sort-by-price option… not even an alphabetical list. Like my (your?) typing, it’s all hunt and peck.
I was able to find a few of their cheapest offerings - each just $11.86:
- Blade Runner - Collector’s Edition
- The Fifth Element
- Black Hawk Down
- 3:10 to Yuma
There are also many in the $13-16 range, and of course, more in the $20 and up. Alas, no concert jerseys to be found.
Sale price: $11.86
