218. The Bargain CD Set (1)
"I want some new love songs," Gita complained to Sidney. "I'm tired of listening to the same old ones." Sidney suggested that they go to WhereHouse, a popular music store that sold new and used CDs at great prices. So they drove to the one on Huntington Ave.
Once inside the store, Sidney asked the clerk where the Greatest Hits section was. She pointed it out to him. Sidney and Gita walked to that section and started looking. There was a tiny section entitled "Love Songs." It contained only two CD sets. One was called "Love Songs of the ?0s." It contained original hits by original artists, such as Frank Sinatra and Rosemary Clooney. "This is great," Sidney told Gita. "There are 36 songs, and most of them are classics."
Then Sidney looked at the other CD set. It was entitled "Sixty of the World's Favorite Love Songs." While the first set contained 36 songs and cost $16.99, this set contained 60 songs and cost only $11.99. "Boy, this is a good deal," Sidney told Gita. Knowing that a good deal wasn't always a good deal, Sidney read the small print on the side of the package: "This album contains some tracks that are re-recorded. All single artist tracks are performed by the original artist. Tracks featuring groups were re-recorded using as many of the original group members as possible."
