My music collection

My master list from my old Angelfire site, slightly updated, in alphabetical order. MIML=Made in My Lifetime, FMPC=From My Parents’ Collection, OD=On Display. The format of each is in parenthesis after the title. It needs to be updated to include a bunch of vinyl albums I’ve come into the possession of but never got around to playing or cataloging. Some of those albums include the inferior Capitol versions of The Beatles’ early albums. The only reason I own any of them is because I got them for free. All the Capitol repackagings except MMT suck.

2 thoughts on “My music collection

  1. “The Beatles’ Second Album” is one of the coolest albums of all time… precisely because it’s such a pathetic repackage by Capitol. Was there any group other than the Beatles who could have a gathering of their B-sides, EP tracks and leftover album tracks randomly thrown together, sequenced horribly – and then have their original mixes messed around with by an American producer who HATED both them and rock and roll in general – and yet still have the results of this invitation to disaster end up as a kick-ass album?!?!

    If you have the stereo album, give a listen to “Money”. The stereo version on this album is more powerful than any version of CD. (Unless of course you’re listening to the CD version of “The Beatles’ Second Album”).

    You got your dollar’s worth!
