Thanks! I'll consider including them as well!

Vibrationbaby:

I empathize: between CDs, LPs and cassettes (both rock and jazz), I also have about 1,700-2,000 albums, acquired over some 35 years or so.  I was able to amass these because the only three things I spent my money on from 1970 to 1982 (or thereabouts) were albums, concert tix and drugs!   (OK, maybe I bought some food sometimes...)  My collection actually scares me sometimes: so many choices that I often find myself absolutely paralyzed when I want to listen to something!  

Peace.

I only have 400 CD's (collected in about 4 years) and I already recognize your problem.  Many times I just don't know what to play!

Sometimes I just close my eyes and grab one, refusing to look at it until I get in my truck.

I have a very "Anal" brother who listens to his stuff A-Z. Really, he starts from one end of his collection and works through to the opposite end. He'd get p.o.'ed if you distrubed his "ROTATION." Scary...

Danbo I understand your brothers anal attitude in part because if you have over 100 CDs (I have about 300 CDs.)you sometimes fall in the same patern and listen to certain CDs too often, sometimes forgeting about other CDs, that once you actually listen, say to yourself: Oh yeah that was pretty good why did I not listen to that sooner ; hence the alphabetized system where you systematically listen to all in rotation so as not to neglect any forgotten "pearls".Wink but messing up the rotation a bit is obviously ok and recommended in moderation to suit your mood.I wish I could follow my own advice but I always go by my mood.

I own a lot of CD's that I just don't want to hear (and they're no pearls!)

I've got over 500, maybe 700? who knows or has the patience to count. I'm a mood guy. Sometimes I'll just listen to Blues for weeks on end, then it's jazz or alternative. Very little country music does NOT make me ppuke and I have no tolerance for rap. Probably my upbringing, I don't know.
