Five On Friday - Stones Baby

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Friday, April 13, 2012

Some of you may know I still own all my vinyl. LPs and 45s...all in pretty dang good condition, because I always loved the vinyl.

I also have thousands of cassettes that I have made, bought or been gifted. For the last few years I have been slowwwwwwwllllly digitizing them so that they can be more portable.

my plans are not to throw any of the vinyl out, but the cassettes are going as they get digitized.

It is a very slowwwwwwwlllll process. BUT recently a friend and I were talking and comparing and it turned out our collections were different in content.

I recently loaded their music into my iTunes. I went through and it will save me from having to digitize some 500+ albums!

My collection is now north of 51,000 songs. One band that would not have been digitized for a while is the Rolling Stones.

See, I built a sort of dewey decimal system for my vinyl years and years and years ago where each band gets a number and then each album gets a decimal within that number. Why did I do this? HA, silly question...I am ANAL!

Anywho, the Stones are down the line so it would have been a long time until I got to them.

But now, they are all loaded and I have been enjoying them greatly.

So, today...as my friend Jamie would say "THE GREATEST ROCK AND ROLL BAND IN THE WORLD, The Rolling Stones!"

  4. I still have a bunch of my old vinyl lps and 45's as well.Great sdtones Set.

     
  5. Travis Cody Says:
  6. I came late to my enjoyment of The Stones. I don't consider myself a fan. But I do enjoy a lot of their music.

    I see absolutely nothing wrong with such a cataloging system for your vinyl. It makes perfect sense to me.

  8. I admire anyone who has the patience required to complete the task that you have taken on. Since I spent my high school days listening to early Beatles and Stones, The Animals, Chad & Jeremy, Beach Boys, etc., all of these tunes bring back fond memories and my "High Tides & Green Grass" album. Thanks.

     
  9. DrillerAA09 Says:
  10. Interesting that I had forgotten about the Stones arrangement of "Sympathy for the Devil", I always associate that song with David Clayton Thomas and Blood, Sweat, and Tears.
