Now that Tower Records stores around the world are closing their doors, we’ve dispatched some specially trained consumer-crazed hobgoblins to the discount bins, in search of a good deal. Alas, all we’ve found so far is a lot of so-so crap. But it’s cheap so-so crap! If you’ve found a great deal at Tower, send the sales info (see below) and an MP3 to email@example.com.
Artist: Red Rockers
Album: Good As Gold, 1983
List Price: $12.99
Minus 40% discount: $8.39
Minus additional 20% Tuesday-night discount: $6.71
Deal or no deal?: Much like the Outfield disc we mentioned yesterday, Good As Gold isn’t some hard-to-find rarity–just one of those albums which always made us curious, but not curious enough to plunk down $13: After all, the only song we new from this New Orleans band was their catchy (if overlong) semi-hit “China.” Anyway, we’re still wading through Gold, but so far, “China” and the new-wave “‘Til It All Falls Down” are alone worth the price. We should have picked this up years ago.
