Sony is re-releasing more collections of Aretha Franklin, Barry Manilow, Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra and Miles Davis. As you can tell by the title of this series, Beautiful Ballads & Love Songs, it must be near Valentine’s Day. Yes, most assuredly.

And the obvious complaint I hear about it when companies like Sony repackage things is that…well, they’re repackaging things. But let’s face it, some people–they might be freaks–might not own the complete library of Miles or Aretha. I mean, there are some people that own Thriller, for example. Somebody has to keep buying copies of the damn thing!

I digress. We have a set of these five CDs to give away to the winner. How do you win? You enter…proceed…

(Psst…track listings are below the entry form.)

    My kind of music!

  6. Paula February 3, 2008 at 3:51 pm

    I gotta make another comment here,just to say that you’d be surprised at what ages watch and listen to whatever.I am 56 (oh well)and it’s just a number.I watch and listen to a wide range of things that date way,way back to whats popular now.the same goes for everything else in my life.It’s all a matter of the mind.
    OK I said it.

    I love this music. but I may have accidentally entered it twice by mistake, please dont banish me. I have to win this or I’ll just die from loss of music anxity.

  8. Paula February 4, 2008 at 6:17 pm

    I hope they don’t banish people Chris-sometimes it’s hard to remember,especially if I get caught reading something else here while I’m doing the contests.you know how coffee brains are.

  9. Widge February 5, 2008 at 2:36 am

    We don’t banish people…we wish you to the cornfield! Moohahahaha!

    Ahem. Sorry.

  10. CHRISCC63 February 7, 2008 at 4:48 pm

    THIS IS AN AWSOME COLLECTION, I LOVE THEM ALL; RAKIE, MILES BILLY ANDURETHEA. WOULD LOVE TO HAVE THIS SET.

  11. Paula February 8, 2008 at 6:54 pm

    Widge-I had a dream (or maybe it was a nightmare) about the cornfield last night.I hope it’s a good one if I ever end up there.A little electricity and a coffee pot,not to mention Betsy (my computer).I’d never enter twice in the same day on purpose.I feel kind of like Linus here ,need my security blanket.

  12. Elise February 15, 2008 at 1:01 pm
