Have anyone else tried to relisten his entire collection?

Re-Listening to all the CDs in my collection is (or was, I will have to leave home office and go back to working at my office soon) actually my pandemia project. My CDs are sorted from A - Z, this means artist names but I also added all the compilations later since I also started to re-arrange my Collection. Chill-out and ambient stuff is also included there. But I won't be listening to that since for me this music not suitable for work. I was able to listen all the albums from artists A to D, Maybe 30 to 40 CDs or something. Then I started to listen to albums and compilations randomly (means I chose the CDs but I tried to listen not only to the stuff i allready played a lot back in the days). I'm still far away from listening to all the stuff I have, also because I started to order new stuff. I have to say I'm nearly as adicted to buying stuff as I was back in the days… :D:D I am listening to all the new CDs that come per mail but I also keep playing my old stuff. Some of the albums I rarely or never listened to are way better than I have expected, I found some real gems there (well, for my taste anyway). And the stuff I used to play a lot still moves me. What doesn't move me anymore is the "standard" prog, it's quite boring to me nowadays. But also in that category there are tracks or albums I still dig. Anyway, I now wonder if and how I will continue listening to goa and psy when regular work starts again, I rarely find time to listen to Music at home, besides the tracks I use for djing (not psy or goa). On the other hand I started to write down the tracks I could use for a mix, mostly goa and neo-goa stuff. I will have to find out if I can mix that stuff tho…

Mostly these days I listen to music outside of the house: wife and daughter don't have the best taste, so I've had to digitise everything. Having a player that can play each album randomly is great as I end up listening to some fantastic albums I probably wouldn't have actively chosen to listen to. Years ago I compiled about 3000 CDs to FLAC and out them into a HDD. Unfortunately my wife decided she'd take this HDD and attach it to the cable box, deleting everything so she could watch utter tripe. One day I might find the time to re-rip everything.

Time is too short with little kids, work & other interests. I'm very particular about music I listen to now & I find a lot of what I used to like I just don't enjoy anymore. Also I had a horribly abusive time on mAny fronts from until I left home at age 26, and much of the music I listened to until then brings back those memories so yeah nah a significant part of my musical history is locked in storage forever.

dude can't imagine how long that took!!!
my collection is still pretty big but obviously nothing on what it used to be, i tend to listen to records alot these days of all genres, my main listening point is the car, and i have no digital platform in my relic, so it's cd all the way, which is great as it's albums all the way, at different times of the day, in different moods, and there are those moments when a track comes on at the right time and blows your mind, i scratch my head and say, i have had this album for 25 years, why have i not heard it properley til now!!
i love to go into all my folders of ripped cd's (remember those times when i flogged my collection off for cheap) and find all these obscure comps with exclusive tracks and shit that you don't hear on the regular comps, and dig into the archives of the past

It took about a year of doing it every night. How I miss having that kind of time :lol:

Love something randomly amazing coming on the realising it's something you've heard many times before but not really listened.
