    I listen to pretty much anything - blues, death metal, reggae, LOTTA classic rock, jazz, eletronica/trance, just not too much that's on the radio...

    There are just over 3900 tracks in my collection, and they span the rainbow, from Tchaikovsky to Tool...there's even a few old-school country cuts in there.

    Nice...I never tire of listening to that soulless bastard. :biggrin1:

    My CD collection is mostly 80's and 90's New Wave. I'll just mention the group that I have several CDs of.

    The Cure, The Smiths/Morrissey, New Order/Joy Division, The Chameleons, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Public Image LTD, Depeche Mode, Skinny Puppy, Ministry, The Pet Shop Boys, Erasure, OMD, Simple Minds, The Beastie Boys.

    Recently to save space for moving I took all the CDs out of the jewel case and stored them with their CD covers. So what would have taken several boxes fit into a shoe box.

    I dont' have any Country CDs. I do have Public Enemy for rap, Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac/Stevie NIcks for Classic Rock and ABBA for pop, and Madonna (or I would have to turn in my gay card)

    This is the closest I will get to Opera YouTube - Madam Butterfly - Malcolm Maclaran (the Sex Pistols manager)

    This is also a bit operatic YouTube - Carolyn's fingers - Cocteau twins

    Hurricaine Wilma knocked out my hard drive in some freaky electrical surge, and my music collection went from over 5000 files down to a (meager) 2800 or so.

    I may or may not ever get around to recovering most of what I lost.

    I guess it breaks down this way:

    Punk Rock/Post-Punk
    Synthpop/New Wave
    Classic Disco (1970s: I'm a purist)
    NRG/Dance/Trance (Post-Disco)
    R & B/Motown
    Early Jazz/Swing
    Bebop/Bossa Nova
    HiFi Vocalist (Dinah Washington, Peggy Lee, Jack Jones, etc)
    French Popular Music (1925-2005)
    Assorted Classic/Alternative Rock

    I have a bunch of music on vinyl and on cassette. I have a bunch of CDs. And a few MP3s as I don't have an MP3 player. But I listen to MP3s I do have on my PC.

    I have an Antonio Carlos Jobim 3CD Compilation. It is sooo good. I love bossa nova.

    I also listen to the same things as you and I like to listen to my music at night mixed with pure moods and Narada stuff along with blues and jazz. My collection tends to run the gamut from 30's/40's jazz to Guns and Roses and anything rock and from punk and disco to redneck country music and opera and classical.

    I have almost every Miles Davis Columbia Recording that he made. They are either on CD or in a box set. The entire Herbie Hancock Blue Note recordings and all of his solo CD's from the 70's. I also collect Jimmy Smith, Wes Montgomery, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Al Dimeola, Charles Mingus, John Coltrane, Grover Washington jr. and the Weather Report. I have an awesome sealed 24 karat gold copy of Heavy Weather, that is in a big and beautiful canvas box like a box set comes in, it's rare as hell.

    Can I be nerdy and say that I collect Jean Michelle Jarre and Brian Eno as well?

    I also have every Marvin Gaye album that he ever put out. "I Want You" is my favorite (The cover is the classic Harlem renaissance piece "The Sugar Shack" shown in the intro to the TV show Good Times). I also collect Funkadelic, EWF and Stevie Wonder (I don't have Master Blaster...). My 70's and 80's funk selection is SICK!!!!!

    I also have every Billy Joel CD and every Ozzy Osbourne CD (No Zakk Wylde allowed)... my Genesis collection is killer too.

    As for Classical music... I collect Shoenberg, R. Strauss, Copeland, Rimsky Korsakov and Gershwin.

    I have every Enigma and Enya album and also collect Phillip Glass.

    To round it out... I also collect Wayne Dyer audiobooks! lol!!!!

    Now THAT is what I am talkin' about... Invisibleman likes the Bossa Nova as well...

    have y'all seen the documentary called "The Girl From Ipanema"? It is a doc about the creation and cultivation of Bossa Nova, it is narrated in part by the actual Girl From Ipanema!!!! She still looks AMAZING!!!

    My collection covers every genre.
    I do love Angelo Badalamenti, though, and try to find all of his work.

    Nice!
    I would love to come over one day (just the two of us :tongue:), begin with Miles Davis, maybe Bitches Brew, move on to Herbie, the Round Midnight soundtrack or Possibilities, pause for Birdland (replaying 10 or 11 times), and end with Brian Eno. If you have anything by the Crusaders, Pablo Casals, or Portishead... I'm in love. :)

    Oh man... I am gonna have to start checkin' out Pablo Casals... I have always heard of his name, but have never checked out his cello playin', he is, I assume one of the greatest in the world right? "Street Life" makes me feel all energetic inside whenever I hear it... they have remastered the album and it sounds fantastic!!!! They are a phenomenol jazz group... Joe Sample came with Boney a few years back and I fucking had to work! Aaarrgggh!!!!

    Portishead changed my life... Dummy will be one of my top favorite albums of all time, I was the first person in my area to be into them back in 1995.

    I can't believe your taste in music... it is phenomenal... you can come over anytime my dear, it's slap in the middle of wedding season which means that my living room is filled with cameras, "tripods", cables, various dj equipment and my usual music gear... the place looks like a pawn shop! lol! Thank you very much for the mental image of us gettin our groove on (musically of course! lol!)...

    hmmm... tripod likey the chockokittie (Your gallery is KILLER!)!!!! :tongue:
