PostSubject: Large music collections...   Wed 4 Jun - 21:12

I'm sorting through my collection, and finding quite a few old classic albums I've not listened to in a long time. So I'm wondering, what's the best way to manage listening hours so that I don't end up forgeting good albums? (I don't have a HUGE amount of music at the moment ~1500 albums/demos. I wonder how those who have 10,000 albums manage to get their daily dosage of Sodom? Is it possible to have a collection TOO big?)

+ what do you do when you find a cassette without any label, you can't remember who it is, but know it's really good?!?

No collection is too big imo! I have all of my tapes carefully labelled and placed on my wall in storage units so they are easy to locate. I usually only pull one off the wall at a time to avoid mixing the tapes up. Sometimes when drinking this can happen so I double check the next mouring to make sure everythings in their proper cases from the night before. Cdrs I store in binders, easier that way for the most part. I also have a cd sheelve that fits 900 cds and that is full now, and my vinyl lps in a storage device as welll.

I didn't mean having too large a collection with regards to storage problems so much, more about having problems with alocating time to listen to each 'classic' album....

Lets say you listen to 10 hours of music a day. That's 70 hours a week and around 3500 hrs a year. At a guess, each album lasts 30 mins, so it's possible to listen to about 7000 albums a year. But nobody listens to albums just once a year (I have to get The Magus in at least every month, or I'll go mad!) so it's probably more like 2500-3000 albums and demos a year. (and this is asuming you can listen to 10 hours EVERY day....)

Once you start getting a collection of over 3000 items, it gets impossible to listen to everything in one year.....

So do you either stick with what you have and buy nothing new, or buy all the new albums knowing you may not get time to listen to them properly?

You order demos from me, and you keep on surpporting the underground! :strong:
At least demos are shorter, and you can listen more in one year.

Damn right Gab! Twisted Evil

I find demos are much better then full lengths, as I tend to stick to the classics when I wanna listen to a full length album, which is usually on LP format these days.

I looked at my collection, and I think theres at least 10,000 albums in my collection.....about 50% of my collection is on cassette and most of the cassettes are 90 minutes with 2 albums on them, that is how I have the room to store them all. Twisted Evil

I looked at my collection, and I think theres at least 100,000 albums in my collection.....about 90% of my collection is on external hard drives and most of the hard drives are at least 100 Gigabytes big with 2000 albums on them, that is how I have the room to store them all. Twisted Evil
