  • The best of the best and loving it

    for me having so much music and many never played seems stupid right ? It's true though. A few years back when I finally got digital going good I went on a bender of buying then ripping and vinyl too lol. Got a bud in Europe who has a really high end setup and a good A D converter
    my point is so much to play so little time to play it all.
    How many of you have much more than you can play. How did I get this way how many others are there in this place alone.
    I search through stuff to find what I like but what I like may sound like crap lol. So continue to find till I find what I can listen to that sounds good as well. This is not new and I have laid claim to this before here. Now we have tidal and mqa tidal. It makes me wonder why do it torcher my self with so many choices. I have both direct tv and fios in my place here in NYC. Too many choices and I keep doing it. I'll bet there is a technical term for this kind of madness besides being stupid. The best music I truly love from a child meaning teanager can be played but low never loud it's just to bad.

    You saw my collection Al!

    More than I can listen to - even if I spin two albums every day - for the rest of my life. Then again, can't get rid of any records just in case I give away that album that I might want ten years from now. Or one that turns out to be worth a fortune. Yeah none of this makes any sense.

      Two bedroom condo forces my collection to be democratic. I have weeded out the stuff I don't play that often which of course makes room for the new.

          You can spend your money on a lot of stupid things. I never thought that buying another LP was stupid. IMO you can never have too much music. Its a great expression of who we are and one of the greatest human art forms. I admire people who can create great art.

          I analyze software for a living. Some people think I'm pretty good at what I do but I don't think its anything special. I would much rather be able to create a piece of music or paint a masterpiece. I don't have a huge LP collection but it makes me happy.

          I still buy LPs and won't stop until I die. When my time comes I hope that my LPs will go to someone who values music and the vinyl.
