Reduction Plan (?)
1-15-08 Reduction plan
After writing about Universal’s “To Go: Stick It In Your Ear” cheap CD’s yesterday, I return to my thoughts about cutting down on my collection. I need to look around and find a list of those “To Go: Stick It In Your Ear” titles – what artists there are etc. I remember seeing these in ’06 when they came out, I think they were $3.99 or something. I found two last December ‘07 for $1 each.
Also in December, one day that I went to a favorite
If I can find out what “To Go: Stick It In Your Ear” Motown titles they made, I might be able to get rid of a ton of Motown vinyl & CD’s! I almost never listen to them, as complete collections – I usually go after the singles that I like, when wanting to spice up an R&B collection MD/CD-R/mix-tape. Will the Stevie Wonder “To Go: Stick It In Your Ear” title have the single version of “Living For The City”? Hmmm…I wonder.
I almost always make plans to cut down on having so much stuff – but the universe (Universal?) gets in the way. Seems I want to keep around music that I am merely OK with, rather than concentrating on artists that I admire highly. Oh, if I had bought that Sony hard-drive “ES” deck! I could be busy dubbing individual songs to the hard-disk, and throwing away boat-loads of “Best Of” CD’s for artists that are ‘secondary’ to me.
I have been making some ‘genre’ “Best Of” MD/CD-R/mix-tapes lately – “British 60’s”, “French 80’s Wave”, “Japanese 90’s”, “Jazz Before 1968”, “NZ 70’s/80’s Singles” etc. In the case of the “British 60’s” collection, I had to buy a CD for a single track: Swinging Blue Jeans “Hippy Hippy Shake” – and I could not bring myself to buy a Peter & Gordon CD just to get digital copies of “A World Without Love” and “Lady Godiva”. Yes, I have CD’s by Freddie & The Dreamers, Gerry & The Pacemakers, Billy J. Kramer & The Dakotas etc.
Do you ever keep an LP or CD for a single track (or two)? What are they? And where can I buy a Sony hard drive audio ES unit???
PS: Sorry for the weak entry - my brain wasn't anywhere in particular, so I just sort of rambled on from yesterday. I'll try to do better next time. And how do I rotate th photo? This ain't Flickr, so I do not know how to flip a photo in Blogger. Sorry.
