A tragic event found two crates and a box, all full of CDs, unexpectedly back in my possession today. I parted ways with these CDs somewhere around 10 years ago. So some of these CDs, and bands - I haven't listened to their songs since (Ed Harcourt?, Hot Hot Heat, Gorky's Zygotic Mynci anyone?). Others, or rather, most, I've kept up with every album they've put out since (see next and most posts in this project). Overall the collection is made up of CDs I bought (or a copy a friend may have burned for me) between the mid nineties to early oughts and ranges the spectrum of genres. To put it mildly, this is an amazingly ass-kicking collection of music on a near obsolete format.
Some photos. (And these are more or less untouched order-wise from how I received them today. I just dusted some spines, hope you can make out most of the titles.)
Oh, and in the middle of all this was the mystery CD travel jacket that holds probably the oldest stuff. Don't remember seeing this thing since high school, honestly. But no, I haven't even opened it yet.
So you've got an idea of what I have and my project is to burn all this old shit onto to my (fairly) new computer and jot down some thoughts and listen to some songs and dust off some memories. Please join me, won't you?
