Default i am going to start yet another ebay thread because

If there is anybody left who does not have the Songbook box set they should get over to Ebay pronto a NY seller has a "brand new" copy on offer af a starting price of only $8.00 (No bids yet)

A digital photo taken with a very very cheap digital camera or when the photographer was stoned
"this gordon lightfoot cd has 88 songs 4cds new never open winner to pay 7.00 shipping"

Are there any rarities on the box set that aren't on any other albums?

Right on Peter

anazingly there are still no bids possibly because it is listed as merely "Gordon Lightfoot CD"
the auction is at
http://cgi.ebay.com/GORDON-LIGHTFOOT...0?pt=Music_CDs
But first come first served
and now only two days left to bid
surely not everybody here has a copy??
Or get a spare copy or present it to a friend
With shipping it might only cost $11.00 a real bargain
BUT don't all bid at once or you'll drive the price up!

I see that the boxset went for a most reasonable $22.50.
I had toyed with the idea of trying to win it myelf by sniping and had actually installed a freeware program (called jbidwatcher) but had not yet worked out how to use it. By that time there was a single bid in so the price was at least $8. If I had tried sniping I would have gone to about $20.00 the winner who you cannot nowadays identify put in his/her winning bid 14 seconds before the auction ended. Obviously won by using a sniping program.
I do hope that the winner was a corfiddler de dee da dum.

Now why didn't I think of bringing that last time?

Hey Jess,I know how you feel. I didn't spend as much as you but for me it was a lot of money.
Imagine having a job where you only make $7.00 an hour + tip/grat. and paying (after sales tax) nearly $63 for that box set.

I know I posted iot elsewhere sometime ago but I paid on installments at Sam Goody's until I picked it up on Aug. 7th,2001.
Hey! That's *gulp* 9 years & almost two weeks ago! YIPE!!!!


As someone whose bought off Ebay and another musci related site called Musicstack,beware,the cheaper you go,the lesser the quality.
