o go to the desired letter, navigate the lists from the main menu, by expanding the “Music Collection” menu item.
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 (rather large) 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 will prove to be close to impossible. After all, I’m not a sound engineer.
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 digitized and re-mastered, so these list pages are a continuous “work in progress”.
For the 7″ (45 rpm) entries, I used a slightly different criterion: since most of those singles did not have an explicit “album title”, I entered the titles of the A and B sides instead.
This was also true for some of the 12″ (both 45 rpm and 33⅓ rpm) where no “album title” was available.
In all those cases, an asterisk (*) will mark the entry.
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.
But most likely, I won’t.
