$5 Holiday MP3 Albums at

Missed this last week thanks to Sandy knocking out our power... has 100 holiday MP3 albums on sale for $5 each throughout the month of November. All month long you can grab albums from the masters Andy Williams, Frank Sinatra, Perry Como, Elvis Presley and Bing Crosby. Or pick up more modern fare from Harry Connic Jr., Straight No Chaser, Josh Grobin, Matthew West or Wilson Phillips. The selection here is pretty choice so just about everyone can find a holiday favorite. I just snared Leonard Bernstein's The Joy of Christmas...
