A Hidden Treasure

Last night, a couple of my friends and I went to Half Price Books. It’s not possible for me to go there and spend less than an hour. I prefer three. They have huge CD and DVD sections and more books on their shelves than you can possibly browse in one visit. Most of the merchandise is used. Some of it is new. All of it is at least half price.

They always have CDs on clearance. Last night they had a section of used CDs for $1.00 and $2.00. I found an old Enuff Z’ Nuff CD for $2.00. If you were an 80s child, you might remember them. Their biggest hits were “Fly High Michelle”—a singsongy tune that you either loved or hated (I love it!) and “New Thing”—another singsongy tune you couldn’t help but hum along to. Well, the CD I picked up last night didn’t have those songs on them. But it did have another song I remember called “Right by Your Side.” I even found a video presentation of the song (see below).

By going to the band’s website I learned that they have put out 14 albums. Wow, talk about losing track of a band. I had no idea. It’s sort of like finding a hidden treasure—like when you find a new-to-you author for the first time and then you go back and read everything he or she has ever written. I think I’ll be looking for more of their work in the bargain bin or on ebay since iTunes doesn’t have many of their albums available.
