Since the 20% off sale was still on I figured I should check out the other Mr. Cheapo location and ended up doing even better there.

LPs

CDs
Modern Jazz Quartet: The Coplet MJQ Prestige and Pablo Recordings - Prestige/Pablo 4 CD Box Set w/ 38 page Book
Joe Pass: University of Akron Concert - Pablo CD
Count Basie Orchestra: Count Plays Duke - MAMA CD

And these were from the Quarter bin.......
