How large is your cd collection, roughly? You are missing out on some good pop.


You're about a vowel short there, googa! ;)

CD collection is several thousand. Many more LPs, 45s and 78s. I'm much more about quality than quantity. I leave tons of stuff behind on my many thrift store runs. I refuse to spend very much time listening to things that might be good. There is so much great music that I'm missing that I can't spend a load of time with the merely good.

So quantitatively, we are about the same, then. I've said it before, my shopping is three-tiered, thrift/flea - accord - amazon. I can't expect to find much Cash or Ramones stuff for 24 pence. But I can still get hours of enjoyment. Variety is of the utmost importance to me.

GM has no passion for music. He is an obsessive, perhaps addictive collector of compact discs.

Also, you are in LA, bound to find more great stuff cheap.

John, it takes some degree of passion to put in as many hours as I do. I'd say I am half passion, half obsessive.

He has a different passion for music than you or I. And there are worse things to collect than CDs, I suppose.

Indeed. But wherever I might be I'd rather listen to Johnny Cash at San Quentin several times to get to know it than listen to it once so I could move on to Sailor, George Michael or Jose Feliciano. Location doesn't change that. That's where our listening/collecting approaches differ.

My dream score would be 90% soul and reggae. But Denmark only has a small black community, and the Danes don't care much for those genres. So I toddle along with pop and rock.

I think you are mincing words here. Passionate and obsessive, wouldn't that be tantamount to love, genuine love of music?

As much as it had to do with Skope and Rayge. Or are they somehow more entitled to make suggestions than anybody else?

And you have the gall to all me a troll.
