CDs for Stockings - 12/11/12 08:04 PM

Teachers First!
I have been wading through my CD collection, and weeding out those to which I no longer listen. So, just in time for your stocking-stuffers, the following are all in excellent playing condition. A couple of the jewell cases have a scratch or two. Take them ALL for a donation to my Fender Rhodes Fund of $25, plus whatever shipping actually costs. If you do not care about the jazz, take just the Serious for $15. Or take just the Jazz for $15 (I’m easy).

First come - first served, as long as I recognize your Forum name. Send me a PM. Remember, postage to Canada is quite expensive, AND there is an additional $5 currency conversion fee charged by my bank.

All the Jazz CDs have been sent out. All the Italian CDs have been sent, also.

All the Serious CD collections, including two full-length Verdi Operas, and Mahler's Second, are still on the shelf.

I'll give it a couple more days, and then open up to the other Forums.

Thanks,
Ed
