If someone looked through you music (records, CDs, etc.) what would surprise them?
This actually was a bit of a happening with a friend. In looking though my...special pressings, gold Cds, SACDs, and other esoteric "software sources" he was surprised at the Rosie Clooney ones. In her later life she did some CDs of "standards" and she nailed 'em.
Just the fact that I have so much of it would probably be the first and biggest surprise. I don't wear headphones around all the time (or any of the time), and I rarely talk about music at all. I think it would come as a surprise to just about everybody that I listen to music as much as I do.
Lots of NWOBHM 7”’s 12”’s, LP’s did a lot of trading in the early 80’s. had several trade buddies in Europe, ide send some cassettes, records, etc, in return I would get a lot of rare British rock/pre-metal stuff.
Still have most,still in touch with my friends across the pond.
For me my musical taste goes everywhere with the majority of my collection centered around R&B, Rock and country but the lack of not one offering from Frank Sinatra surprised even myself and I need to rectify that. Enjoy the music
Wait, I thought cat hair on a special pressing LPs just gave them more.....ah, you know, texture? The last cat I had would sit for very long periods of time trying to "catch" the cursor on my computer monitor...sometimes on the front of the screen and sometimes on the back... more than once I lost a mouthful of coffee onto the screen from laughing.
@dayglow no Bowie? Blasphemy! Haha! Yeah, being a drummer, most of my music leans on the rhythm side with some great musicians and particularly drummers. But, they would be surprised by the wild variety of different styles.
