Today, I stopped by a Crown Book liquidation center. I only planned on buying some $1 books for stocking stuffers. Thought I’d walk out of there spending no more than 5 or 6 bucks. Not even close. I did a ton of really good deals. A ton of respectable $1 books…if there is such a thing. But I made one unique discovery. Something I never thought in a hundred years I would find…a CD.
In the back of the store, behind a rack of VHS movies, I found the CD shelves. Strangely, the CDs were hidden behind an even more obsolete medium…or maybe not. Most of the CDs, were very obscure groups on even more obscure labels. Yet, one artist stood out. One artist I had been looking for…for years. That artist is Sweet 75.
For those who don’t know, Sweet 75 is the short-lived post-Nirvana project of Krist Novoselic. It didn’t have the sparkle of the Foo Fighters…and sold only a few dozens copies. I’m a huge Nirvana fan and always wanted a copy…but it was impossible to find one. It was released one Tuesday and was out-of-print by Friday. I scoured used stores…even ebay. But the price tag was always too high. Until today. Today, I found the CD for $1. One freaking dollar. From the most important band of the 90s to the $1 rack at a liquidation center. Take note Guy Berryman…you’re next.
