Saturday night, I discovered that I have a new music cable channel called Palladia and they were showing a new concert from Styx called Styx: Grand Illusion/Pieces of Eight – Live, which will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on January 29, 2013. Now, Styx happens to be one of my favorite classic rock bands ever, and having seen them live tens of times, I was definitely interested in checking out this concert, where they play both of the amazing albums in the title in their entirety. During my research, I discovered that 7 of their greatest albums are on sale right now for $6 and under, and I would be remiss if I didn’t share this information with you.
Listed below are the albums, all originally released from 1975-1983, on sale for $6 and under in both CD and MP3 formats; all the listed CDs are “AutoRip,” which means if you purchase the CD, you’ll ALSO get the MP3 version for free; therefore, if the CD is cheaper than the MP3 version, then definitely get the CD, so you’ll get both formats for less. (Note – not every format for every title is on sale, but I’ve listed it here for consistency.) I’ve also included for each album the release date and some of its most famous tunes.
Equinox (1975) CD $5.99 | MP3 $5.00 Light Up, Suite Madame Blue, Lorelei
The Grand Illusion (1977) CD $4.99 | MP3 $5.00 The Grand Illusion, Fooling Yourself, Come Sail Away
Pieces of Eight (1978) CD $4.99 | MP3 $9.49 Blue Collar Man, Renegade, Sing for the Day
Cornerstone (1979) CD $4.99 | MP3 $5.00 Babe, Lights, Boat on the River
Paradise Theatre (1981) CD $3.99 | MP3 $9.49 The Best of Times, Too Much Time on My Hands, Rockin’ the Paradise
Kilroy Was Here (1983) CD $5.99 | MP3 $5.00 Mr. Roboto, Don’t Let It End, Don’t Let It End
