The wonderful Munoz family is now moving to Virginia and recently donated quite a bit of Munoz’s back-catalogue to us. So we are having a big sale and will do it in two parts, this week and next week. There are now upwards of 50 releases: LP’s, CD’s, cassettes and DVD’s.
Here’s the deal for this list.
Buy any 5 items
The free item can’t be a 2 CD set, a DVD or the box set.
All items are currently available although certain are down to the last 2 or 3.
Some of these titles might be the Sunnyside (domestic) versions rather than the Owl (French) versions.
Most of these items are nearly or completely out-of-print so he or she who snoozes, loses.
There are a few reviews down below…

We’ve listed more than 1,000 LP’s, CD’s & even cassettes on Discogs & ebay over the past year alone. I’ve been working on a masterlist of CD’s & LP’s which we have multiple copies of so that all we be listed on Discogs

Saturday, May 1st was the actual anniversary of Downtown Music Gallery, 30 years to the day! I am immensely proud of all we’ve accomplished since we opened out doors on 211 East 5th St. in the East Village. Special thanks to all of the well-wishers who’ve written to us or come down in the past month, we do appreciate your kind words of support! We, here at DMG, are going to celebrate for the entire month with some live outdoor events, some in-store on-line events and a series of on-line epis
Last Friday, May 1st, was the 29th anniversary of the modest beginning of Downtown Music Gallery. We opened our doors on May 1st of 1991! Our first store was at 211 East 5th St., around the corner from Cooper Union. Our rent was cheap ($750) and the store was not very big (750 sq ft). There were two owners, David Yamner & Steve Popkin, and I worked for them 6 days a week. Their plan was to sell Used CD’s and vinyl while I promoted Downtown/Progressive/Avant Jazz, what I dug the most. There wer
