Music Collection

T

o go to the desired letter, navigate the lists from the main menu, by expanding the “Music Collection” menu item.

You can also use one of the buttons below to jump directly to the page you want to visit.

It’s time to show off my music collection, but it’s better to make some things clear:

Not all entries are “originals”.

    • Most of the entries are LP’s (which will remain forever the only “true” originals. Long live vinyl!!).
    • A very large  – and still growing – part of the items is represented by CD’s (sometimes doubled-up with the original LP, sometimes not)
    • A few digitized and re-mastered copies of old-fashioned tape reels (from a glorious and by now sadly deceased Revox B-77)
    • A couple of crates worth of digitized and re-mastered cassette tapes (dubbed on a splendid antique Nakamichi 600 first, which was eventually retired and followed by a Nakamichi BX-2 deck, using top-notch SONY audio software and a lousy operator: me, obviously)

The tapes entries will appear on these lists only when I have digitally re-mastered the whole tape successfully to CD. However, some might be lost forever, when the restoration process appears to be close to useless.

Moreover, I may be the owner of the complete musical production of,  say, The Rolling Stones. However, you will see listed only those records that I have already digitalized and re-mastered, so these list pages are a continuous “work in progress”.

For the 7″ (45 rpm) entries, I used different criteria: since most of those singles did not have an “album title”, I entered the titles of the tracks instead.

This was also true for some of the 12″ (both 45 rpm and 33⅓ rpm) where no “title” was available.

In all those cases, an asterisk (*) will mark the entry.

In each pseudo-alphabetical list, click on the name of the Band/Artist to expand and visualize the records list.

The list is not exactly in alphabetical order.

Nonetheless, I did some kind of grouping, depending on the first letter of the artist’s or band’s name, which means: don’t expect to find Alan Stivell at the letter S. He’s under the A, just as The Allman Brothers Band is under the T, not the A (or the B, for that matters).

Maybe one day I’ll order the entries in a “real” alphabetical order.

… Then again, maybe not.

Don't let your thoughts pile up too high.
