Frends of Squid Cost Sale

On Friday we will send out an announcement to our full mailing list, celebrating our 17th Anniversary in business selling creative and amazing music. In advance of that announcement we're offering you — one of a select set of our favorite customers who have ordered in the last year and who have ordered from us more than once — access to an unadvertised sale on our website, where your price is set to our cost for a set of more than 200 albums!

These albums were added to our catalog in our first decade, and are a selection of CDs and LPs of Jazz & Improvised Music, Compositional, Experimental and Rock-Based forms. Many of these are last copies of items that will be removed from our catalog, or which will be changed to special-order only. So take a look through this great set of albums, but hurry! This sale ends Thursday, January 30th at midnight.
