Amazon’s Friday Five Deals For This Weekend

One of the, um, “advantages” of featuring Amazon products on this site is that they email me whenever they have new promotions and good deals.  In a lot of cases, that means I end up spending money I normally wouldn’t have.  To quote the great Patrick Ewing–“Yeah, we make a lot of money, but we spend a lot of money too.”  It’s very fitting, outside of the fact that I don’t make a lot of money.

Anyway, Amazon just launched a new promotion for their MP3 store that has some really good deals.  Every Friday they will have five albums on their site that you can download for $5.  They’re calling it Friday Five and it runs through the weekend as well.  I already love it.  The five albums for this week are Sublime/Sublime, Rumours/Fleetwood Mac, Detours/Sheryl Crow, Birth of the Cool/Miles Davis, Consolers of the Lonely/The Raconteurs. Three of those are must haves in my book–can you guess which three?

They also have some other albums for $6, $7, and $8.  Again–these are full albums with no licensing.  You can copy them and play them whenever and wherever you want (unlike iTunes).
