Kmart 2011 Black Friday Ad Offers Lynyrd Skynyrd And Other CDs For Just Five Bucks
Some people line up outside big box retailers on ‘Black Friday’ to run in and snag flat-screen TVs or ‘Call of Duty’ video games, but we have our eyes firmly planted on some Southern rock. Lynyrd Skynyrd‘s 2010 contribution to the ‘Icon’ series, a collection of compilation albums from 30 major artists spanning the worlds of rock, pop, R&B and country — will be available on Nov. 25 exclusively from the discount department store chain for the unbelievably low price of $5.
And five bucks for Skynyrd’s ‘Icon’ is a steal. Often times career-spanning retrospectives like this are a little suspect, but this one lives up to its name, and is the perfect introduction to that budding Skynyrd fan in your family. The back-to-basics disc features hits and fan favorites like ‘What’s Your Name,’ ‘Saturday Night Special,’ ‘Call Me the Breeze’ and ‘That Smell’ alongside the band’s two mandatory tracks: ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ and ‘Free Bird,’ which here is represented with a live version.
Other artists in the ‘Icon’ series include Neil Diamond, Kiss, Motorhead, Nirvana, Rush, Rod Stewart, Styx and Three Dog Night, although it is not known if any of these collections will also be on sale at Kmart.
What definitely is also available is Bryan Adams’ ‘Icon’ album, plus another CD titled ‘Icons of Rock’ which appears to be a compilation of the best ‘Icon’ tracks from several of the artists listed above.
The $5 Lynyrd Skynyrd ‘Icon’ offer may not be quite as amazing of a deal as Best Buy’s ‘Black Friday’ sale featuring Aerosmith, Guns N’ Roses and Creedence Clearwater Revival CDs for under three bucks, but it’s still a great one. Before you know it, it’ll be time to get in that long ‘Black Friday’ line.
