Just found this gem on CNN of all places...
Pat DiNizio is CRAAAA-ZZZZZY!
(CNN) -- Twenty-one CDs? 511 tracks? Only $100? And it comes with a rhinestone and stud setter?
OK, that last part is made up. But the Smithereens' Pat DiNizio is offering a bargain that will bring a smile to any music fan's face. "The Smithereens Mega Box Set" is an exhaustive limited-edition collection of the band's demos, rarities, alternative versions and live tracks.
Or, as DiNizio's Web site puts it, "It's an amazing document the chronicles the entire history and career of the Smithereens from 1980 to the present day!"
Hyperbole aside, the Smithereens have been celebrated for their catchy pop songs -- including "Behind the Wall of Sleep," "Time and Time Again," "House We Used to Live In," "Blue Period" and "Too Much Passion" -- and terrific live shows.
Only 500 of the box sets will be produced, each of which is personally autographed by DiNizio. One set will contain "a unique, one-of-a-kind item" -- according to the Web site -- and the purchaser of the set will win a free living-room concert from DiNizio.
