  1. just how big is your record collection? it seems like you recommend three or four different albums on every thread around here. :D

    so can i get an estimate as to how many albums you own? do you have any pictures? please tell me you have pictures.

    It's a disease goin' back to my 12th Birthday...on that day, I received my 1st 3 'real' albums & was hooked.
    (Led Zep III-The cover looked 'cool'
    Jackson 5 ABC-I liked the the title tune
    Santana Abraxas-I liked "Evil Ways" & got the wrong record.

    I have 2000 LPs
    ...I'm guesstimating at least that amount in cds.
    Needless to say, a lotta junk(ie "coasters") is included in there; I look at some of the albums & think, "What the Hell?!"

    At the old defunkt Jazz Central Station website, some poster claimed to have 27,000 albums...he must live in a warehouse.

    ...& ask Jerry or Brad what they have socked away over the years!

    How 'bout I leave you my copy of The Osmonds' Phase III?
    ...or perhaps the Dawn debut album("Candida", "Knock Three Times", etc).

    i havent made it to my reggae thread yet Jim, Im slowly workin my way to it.

    Sly & Robbie are they a group or just a rhythm section....I read someone say something about them being with Black Uhuru thats why Im asking. I dont know if they went solo or not.

    How do I get into that program? I'm on the "buy groceries every week" program.


    I think I do a CD every month or so. My next two are gonna be: Slippery When Wet and Purple Rain. I may throw in a few Ramones CDs too, if I can spare the cash.

    Oh,my parents are on that too!
  17. Geez, my collection just makes it over 200+..I used to buy a CD a week, a lot of times 2 or 3. I was young and foolish then though, I learned that it doesn't matter how many CDs you have, so long as you savor and enjoy all the ones you do have, and that they truly touch you. When I was buying several CDs a month, I found I could never really get into and understand the songs...if a CD didn't jump out and grab me I shelved it. Then, months later I would listen to that CD again and feel so enthused and amazed...more than once, a CD I thought was crappy turned into one of my fave albums! And other ones that I had loved turned into crap for me.
    Of course, I still want more CDs, there's just too much music out there, and everytime I buy a CD by a new band that I like, I'm immediately opened up to tons more!
