Music to paint by

 In my youth I had a decent classical music collection on LPs. Still have them but don't play them because they haven't been downloaded on my PC...

Anyway, looking through ebay as I do (and picked up a couple of The Tiny albumns cheap in the process!) I idly started looking at classical music cds and realised something.

If you bought a decent second hand collection it would be cheap.

So I started looking...

 

40 cds for less than £1 each - and a good basis for a collection. I just have to sort out and rip the ones I want!

Some opera here, but no Wagner - want the Ring Cycle - and no Also Sprach Zarathustra - but pretty much everything else I want is there!

  1. Nice find. I tend to listen to spoken word CDs myself , or adaptions of books, usually by the BBC.

    1. When you look on YouTube there are thousands of books/stories/etc available. I listen to/watch quite a few myself. As for the cds, again there are dozens of collections on ebay at that sort of price per cd - well worth looking, I just chose one of the bunch that seemed to meet my 'needs'. They've now all been downloaded on my PC but haven't actually gotten round to listening to any of them!

  2. A nice collection Rob...
    I must have a look on eBay...
    I’m more of an audio book/ jazz fan myself but I am open to most things.

    All the best. Aly

    1. It's well worth the look - once you start looking at bulk buying second hand and accepting you won't want everything you get, especially on things like music cds (or the block of 72 Dr Who books I once bought) the unit price on the bits you do want goes down a lot.
