Just a thought. Have you good folks ever spotted a CD in the rack that you haven't listened to for ages, but was in "heavy rotation" when you bought it?

Last night, one of my daughters muttered something about "ashes to ashes, dust to dust", and I realised that I hadn't listened to Steve Earle's "Jerusalem" for about 4 years although it was on repeat in the car for weeks. Listening to it now as I type.

Tapestry's been getting an airing round here lately. I'd still have a cuddle with Carole you know.

Fark'n'ell: I have about 800 LPs in racks in the attic, and keep vowing to buy an Ion turntable so I can rip old favourites to CD or Ipod.

Difference is, I KNOW what's up there as, in those days, they cost more in real terms (and also took more of my wages), so they were all considered purchases. In the last quarter century, greater affluence meant more casual purchases with a lower impact on the (admittedly waning) memory. Hence, the joy of rediscovery.

Just bought a few going back to the times of real music, "Spooky Tooth",
"Moby Grape", Humble Pie", "Yardbirds" to name a few. Good listening in the car. :ok:

I bought a CD by Queen. Listened a few tmes but haven't listened since I found out that he was a queer. Purely coincidently, probably.

ArthurR: all great stuff. Saw Moby Grape in '67, and have Legendary Grape & Truly Fine Citizen on the Ipod just now. I'd forgotten about Spooky Tooth; off to Fopp at lunchtime for a few purchases, I think.

Magnus, might the "ashes to ashes" quotation be because of the TV series?

Cap'n: I think it was, but I used to do the husky-movie-trailer voice saying "ashes to ashes, dust to dust" when the kids were watching horror films. That, and "bring me the skull". :p

"On the road" Traffic and "Grace and danger" John Martyn are both recent ones of mine, gradually transferring all my cd's to my laptop so this is a frequent occurrence. The gradual bit is because I then have to listen to them again after being reminded of them. Ok for most albums but the four cd box set of live King Crimson took a while!

Queen, James Taylor and Cyndi lauper - getting used daily - all on my MP3 along with Beatles, Woodstock, Billie Holiday and much more. In fact I'm really in a Joe Cocker time warp.

The first post has me searching. Can't find that track but Copperhead Road is playing now, folllowed by Johnny Come Lately. Better not get too deep, 50Gb music on the i-Pod. Long way to go still before verything is copied.
