Just curious how members store, sort and catalog their vinyl collection. With less than a 1000 I have a hard time remembering just what I already own and have purchased duplicates by mistake whilst at the LRS.
How do you store them? How do you sort them? Alphabetical or genre or year? Catalog? In the good old days probably in a note book modern equivalent would be a word document or excel spreadsheet.
Very interested to hear what you do and how you manage that massive collection.
I haven't done the math, but I don't believe there are enough hours in an average persons life to listen to a million albums. And that's if you started at birth! But then, some people "collect" with no intention of listening.
I figured my collection would take about 4 months, non-stop, end to end. Probably 10 years at 1.5 to 2 hours a day leisurely which is what I am doing. I just have to get rid of 4,000 LPs and 2,000 78s in my storage shed and stop buying more.
I have two five tier glass front cabinets... my collection of lp's is around 500 after years of "thinning the herd"!...:-) I sort alphabetically but also have them broken down by types of music ( rock, jazz, blues etc...)
