50 years of music consumption and still going! \m/,

The process of listing this odd assemblage has been a HUGE undertaking.

Thinning the herd, posting dupes and stuff I'm not likely play again for sale. Good to see em finding new homes.

Open to chat about anything in my personal collection. Reasonable trade offers are usually considered.

[Current ongoing projects]

[Collection list]
Still working on the singles...
Winding down the D's. I see some Eagles approaching.

Listed collection by format:
LP's: 2300
45's: 8200
78's: 60
CD's: 750
Tapes: 275

[Selling]
Got piles of stuff threatening to avalanche. Will list less common titles when possible. It's tough to give them up sometimes.

[Special Projects]

[Quadraphonic/Surround]
Guilty pleasure and current fixation. The sensation of 100% immersive audio!
I've been rediscovering a multitude of 'lost' surround recording formats out there. The box of em is getting heaver. Just began adding 5.1 DVD's to the collection. Started a list for the surround stuff in my collection over here.

[Novelty 45's]
Have a few hundred of these that I still need to get sorted and entered. Lots of cool obscure 'Dr. Demento' style stuff and worse, many that are not yet listed on Cogz.
They recently got pushed together with the soundtracks and kiddie stuff so it's an even bigger mess. Started a list for the Novelty stuff found in my collection, so far.

Also started a list for Picture Discs. Will be adding more as I come across them.

[Local Music]
Always enjoy working on profiles for local MKE artists and labels. Feel free to message me for assistance getting your profile(s) setup.

Contributor Status
Getting lots of points banked up. Where can I cash em in on something?

*Finished*

Entering the boxes of Holiday records AND making up lists for them. Of course tomorrow I'll find another one... and week later another one...
At least I have these lists: Halloween, Christmas, which are now public so you can check em out. Helpful if you are planning a holiday party playlist and looking for some suggestions.

This was one of the titles in first handful of CD's I owned.
Cranking up track #5 to expose flaws in a sound system was common at the time.
