Today I was mostly listening, on shuffleplay, to around 630 albums I purchase between 1972 and 1983 - hence the long list above...

I also organised a list of LPs bought during that period which I no longer have...

Around 60 of those are on a hit list now, with a further 130 or so kind of wanted...

I can recreate around a further 20 from tracks I already have...

Finally, there are around 70 which I wouldn't care if I never hear again...

Meanwhile, the weather was not great...

More moving around of music this evening and recreating albums I thought I had...

I think I may have finished the music move for now...

All the acquired albums 72-83 I still have are on the 160GB iPod (along with various other stuff, e.g. all my Blue Note CDs and the entire CBQ discography)..

My current top 50 purchases of 2015 are now on the phone...

And all acquisitions, both physical and virtual, since mid June, are residing on the 16GB iPod Touch which I have re-acquired from the EP following her purchase of a new phone...

Riveting eh?

Lights out...

Highlight of the Day : Listening to old, old LPs...
