Not really, but some days or periods I may be more in the mood for older stuff or for Neo or for modern stuff etc, so when that happens it can be that I am listening to several albums from the same period in a short time, but it's not actually deliberated or planned nor in any particular sequence.

Is there an easy way to upload on RYM? I'm not typing in 1200 albums.

Not really, but you don't have to type the album names in, you find the page for that album and click the "I Own It" button. If you own lots by the same artist, you can catalogue them all pretty quick.

My collection, would start with Gregorian Chants and the 16th century ... Albinoni, Vivaldi ... and others ... and it would take a while before I arrived at 1960!
 
I still think that the 1800's are the best!

Ooooooooooh nope - that would be kind of difficult. What I listen to and when kind of depends on what mood I want irrelevently of recording date. Right now I'm listening to "Ghost Town" by Poco - just before that it was Gazpacho's "March of Ghosts" album. Last night I felt like something really old by today's standards and I spooled up some Sinatra.

I was going to do this but found the logistics unworkable. Do classical composition get listened to by recording date, release date of the album or composition date? Some of the works in my collection have uncertain composition dates and have been released on mltiple albums so it makes it hard.

I am currently listening ti my library in alphabetical order by song, which is nice, and in the past I have done shortest song to longest which was awesome (took a full year)

Took me a little while to fathom what this thread was aboutEmbarrassed (I'm not sure I fully understand it actually)

Simple answer really: I don't catalogue anything in my life - maybe I should, but I don't. I have my collection on the shelf - I see no gain in writing down which ones I own -how old they are and whatnot, I mean, they're right there for everybody to see(and hear). I have however had countless of listening sessions, where albums made around the same time get airplay. I don't think about it though...

I think this is an area of anal behaviour, where we as a gender brush up against what I overtly and quite disrespectfully call the feminine madness. "Let's put everything into nice and neat boxes, so as we can find it again without too much of a hassle" 
We tend to do this with music, most women I've met do this with relationships.
