218. The Bargain CD Set (1)
“I want some new love songs,” Gita complained
Sidney. “I’m tired of listening to the same
ones.” Sidney suggested that they go to WhereHouse,
popular music store that sold new and used
at great prices. So they drove to the
on Huntington Ave.
Once inside the store, Sidney
the clerk where the Greatest Hits section was.
pointed it out to him. Sidney and Gita
to that section and started looking. There was
tiny section entitled “Love Songs.” It contained only
CD sets. One was called “Love Songs of
‘50s.” It contained original hits by original artists,
as Frank Sinatra and Rosemary Clooney. “This is
,” Sidney told Gita. “There are 36 songs, and
of them are classics.”
Then Sidney looked at
other CD set. It was entitled “Sixty of
World’s Favorite Love Songs.” While the first set
36 songs and cost $16.99, this set contained
songs and cost only $11.99. “Boy, this is
good deal,” Sidney told Gita. Knowing that a
deal wasn’t always a good deal, Sidney read
small print on the side of the package: “
album contains some tracks that are re-recorded. All
artist tracks are performed by the original artist.
featuring groups were re-recorded using as many of
original group members as possible.”
