This was in fact a pricing error by Amazon and the prices have gone up to the $7.00 range…still not a bad deal…
Apparently in 2003 there was a pricing glitch at Amazon UK and they would not honor the sale price…
Just got a tip that there is a huge CD sale going on at Amazon right now. You have to ‘dig’ for them, but I found that if you search by artist then sort by price you can find tons for less than $1.00! It appears to be mostly Sony product.
It looks like the entire Judas Priest back catalog (2001 expanded reissues) is on sale for $0.70 each.
I’m not sure how long the sale will last so you’d better act fast. If you still have an Amazon gift card leftover from the holidays then you’re in luck.
Here’s a partial list of artists included:
AC/DC, Judas Priest, Santana, Pearl Jam, Accept, 311, Black Crowes, Ted Nugent, Evanescence, Foo Fighters, Alter Bridge, Blue Oyster Cult, and Ozzy
