50+ remarkable years of music consumption and stiiiiiiiiiill going...
,\m/

Listing this assemblage is a HUGE undertaking.
Just keeping me focused for this long is amazing in it's own right.

It's become apparent that I must thin the herd, considerably.
Therefore I'll be releasing dupes and stuff I'm less likely to play again back into the wild.

Have begun creating boxes of stuff on CD to trade off. Inquire within. Take a peek here

Have officially listed these: Click here to help them find new homes.

Open to chat about things in my personal collection for data / pressing confirmation. Not really into ripping.
Please try to include a link to subject item so I can locate it. Often times I have multiple copies, different pressings, formats, etc.

[Current ongoing projects]

[Collection list]
Still working on the singles...
Haulin ass into the H's!

Listed collection by format:
(As of: FALL 2019)
LP's: 2717
45's: 10241
78's: 81
CD's: 1323
Tapes: 391

[Selling]
Still have piles of stuff threatening to avalanche. Listing less common titles whenever possible. Boxing up other stuff. It's tough to give them up sometimes but this has to be done. Also have loads of more common titles to move. Stop by and take home an armload or two!

[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 new box set reissues with 5.1 mixes are pretty cool. Started a list for my reviews items in my collection over here.

[Novelty 45's]
Have a few hundred of these that I'm trying 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 than before. Started a list for the Novelty stuff found in my collection, so far. Really need a good organizational scheme. Any suggestions?

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 area 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 immediately after thinking this 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.
