Taranna Trip Round-Up







Well folks, it may have seemed like it was never gonna end, but after a whole whack of entries, we actually did get through all of the stuff I found in Taranna when Mike and I went on our annual foray, back in the fall. SO much good music! And the best part is, I only paid more than $4 for about 5 of these discs. 16 of them were $1! I am the master bargain hunter. 🙂

  2. This trip consisted of so much music that I didn’t even see all of these!


  3. That is quite a lot great stuff and with those prices, pretty darn good deals. I think I missed a few those reviews and will have to go back and check them out when I can.


    • Thanks! I was really happy with what I found. Not a dud in the bunch (even the ones I bought on spec)!

      I suppose, if I were a dilligent and helpful blogger, I would have linked all of those to make it easier. But with how busy things have been here, I’m hoping that the Search And Destroy box up in the top right corner of the page will direct you accurately…

      Thank for reading!

  4. That’s a ton of stuff. Sorry couldn’t comment more… only knew one of the albums! And… no video this year?


  5. 16 of these for $1 each definitely earns the title of Master Bargain Hunter, well done & well reviewed!


  6. Brilliant. 44 new entries in your music collection. I think I’m familiar with 12 of them and I believe the majority I’d rate as winners. Good work!
