Every song by this Beantown group has gotten radio play thousands of times, the opening track “More Than A Feeling” spawned would-be and successful guitar heroes all across the continent, it’s definitely one of those dividedly “feel good” rock and roll albums of the 1970s.
Amazon and Random House Digital have a surprising deal on the opening tale of the current Star Wars novel series, Fate of the Jedi. Entitled Outcast, the eBook version of the novel is currently available for $1.99! That’s 93% off of the usual $27 price — an excellent deal for the Star Wars Expanded Universe addict.
Also, being so close to the holiday season, it would make a pretty good cheap gift for someone who is just getting into the whole Kindle scene.
Today’s Goldbox spotlight item of the day over at Amazon is Seinfeld – The Complete Series on DVD for only $99.99 (that’s 60% off the list price of $250.95).

Jerry and his pals live in New York City and somehow manage to turn the mundane into a laugh riot, making the show — created by Curb Your Enthusiasm‘s Larry David — one of the funniest in sitcom history.
This 32-disc two-volume DVD set contains all 180 episodes of the nine-season series along with The Official Coffee Table Book, a 226-page, bound anthology filled with photos, quotes, trivia from every episode.
