  • An Embarrassing Question

    Don't know if it's due to advancing age or advancing size of collection. But here goes. How often do you misplace albums or CDs? (those with music servers can hold their laughter! )

    Just tonight was looking for the Absolute Analogue test pressing of Mott the Hoople's All the Young Dudes and it was no where to be found. After 15 mins of searching (now how many would have given up in frustration?) high and low, finally found it stashed among some Astree classical releases. Don't even know what possessed me to look there but there it was.

    Oh in case you're interested, All The Young Dudes is now stashed safely along with the other five Absolute Analogue releases in my collection.

    You know what they say about getting old, your memory is the second thing to go and you can't remember what the first thing was. Sign o' the times.

        Will you buy a new album to replace the missing LP in the interim?

          no way, I did that once and then found the record, waste of money.

        Having had somewhere around 700 records stolen back in the mid 1990s, I sometimes can't tell if I've misplaced a record that I currently own, or if it was one of the ones stolen that I just forgot about.

          Misplace CDs? Only when I have people over to listen and want to play a particular song for them.

            Happens to me way too often, and my collection is a fraction of yours, Myles, so I really have no excuse!

                It's a game I play. If i look for it I can't find it. But I put it on a list. And the next time i'm in the room, it hops into my hand when i am looking for something else. I'm periodically buying old records I know I already have, but can't find. Then I find them. Did you do a lot of drugs when you were young, Myles? (Just kidding- I think it is age- seems to be a common thing once you are past 60 or so).
                PS: I have a new, fresh copy of that record which I bought, with something else (I forget) from someone who worked for the distributor.

                  I look at it this way. In disorder, there is order. It seems it's after I straighten out my LPs that albums get misplaced.

                    Didn't you say you have an eidetic memory? So, your albums are not organized?
                    I've put some order on much of mine after 4 years of chipping away, but stuff still invisibilizes and then reappears.

                      99 pct are ordered. It's the ones that get a lot of play time that are in disorder. But I know where they all are. It's when they are put in their "proper" place that all bets are off. Somehow a couple--mostly from those labels that only put out a couple of releases and you don't know where to put them on the shelf--that go missing.

                        I do it all the time. My LPs are supposed to be in alphabetical order except for jazz. I file all jazz LPs under "J" and hope I can find them.

                          Hey that's a good idea. Just sort everything into three piles and file under C for classical, J for jazz, and R for rock. Much less work.

                          I could do that for Jazz & Classical as I don't think I have more than 50 LPs combined.
