Lending CDs

  1. AKA CDs you won't be listening to for a while.

    I felt like listening to Rush's Hemispheres for the first time in a while tonight. Turns out I lent it to a friend who moved away. He's only 15 mins or so from my house (by car) but it was past 10:30 when I got home. Normally he'd be a block away and I'd get there by foot in a few minutes. Anyone else lend CD's they've wanted to listen to? I'm sure some of you have lent your CD collections to friends who have moved to Russia or something.

    I don't lend out cd's. I don't even use my own cd's. The minute I get home, I rip teh cd on my computer, than burn it. The originals always stay on a rack.

    Same here, except I lend out as many CDs as I can. There's no greater pleasure for me than sharing music with others. I always urge people to buy the CD if they like it, but whether they buy it or not, the fact that they were able to take it in is a beautiful thing.

    I lent a John Coltrane CD to a friend, and she lent me Miles - Kind of Blue, so we're enjoying the respective geniuses at work...or at least she is. I left the CD in my CD player up in my brother's dorm in Toronto :eek: . He's bringing it down when he comes down for Christmas in a couple weeks though, so it's all good.

    I borrowed my friend's Dream Theater CD, and he's not a friend I see that often, so I've had it for a few months now...I keep bringing it to functions where I expect to see him, but he's never there except for the one time I forgot it. It's especially bad because DT is his favorite band :oops: Eh, he'll get it back eventually.

    I think I remember going music shopping with another friend and buying some Duke Ellington while he bought BB King. I think we temporarily traded, but I never got my Ellington back...or maybe I imagined it, who knows :D

    I once had an original Captain Beyond 1972 debut LP(they were a '70s Rock band with members from Deep Purple, Iron Butterfly, & Johnny Winter And...think Black Sabbath with a brain). ;)
    Sometime in the future('80?), I lend it to a friend...who takes a re-assignment to Naples, Italy for a year. Granted, I was listening to nuthin but Jazz & R&B at that time in my developement...still, you kinda like to have your stuff on the same continent, ya know?
    So, when he gets back, I ask "Do you still have my Captain Beyond album"?
    He sez(naturally), "What album? Who?"

    I finally found that album on cd about 5 years ago.
    The yutz.
