Update on Music Loss Tragedy

Thanks to all of you who left condolenses for my loss of music. I am back up to 3,620 songs. I recovered some (thanks to Bob Vinyl) and a sweet woman at work copied a ton of her music for me. It was very sweet and she has suprisingly good taste :)

I kind of felt sad tonight when I really started to see what I DON'T have. John Lennon is missing! No wonder I feel unsettled.

Luckily most of my favorites were saved but I am missing some much loved music. Here is a list of what I've come up with so far.

PLEASE NOTE! Some of these would fall into my "how can you admit to listening to that" category and some of these I only want ONE song of. So, my next step is to go through my sister's CD's. After that I will go over to a friend's house and search through her husband's collection of 7,000 songs. His taste is not the same as mine - but he's gotta have some of what I need, right??

A few of you have offered to send me MP3s and I may take you up on that as I narrow down my list.

Thanks again for understanding. I am going to back up everything twice from now on!!

Big Country, huh? I actually like them a good bit and I've listened to both The Crossing and Steeltown in the last week or so. I think they suffered for being kind of a Scottish U2. While they couldn't live up to their Irish counterpart, they wrote some good songs. "Fields of Fire" and "The Storm" are both really good songs.

I might also be able to help Layla...It looks like the new iMac will be purchased this weekend..then I need to resurrect the old machine and move everything over and then I can burn some...

Will also be getting a USB turntable and will begin burning vinyl to digital in the next month or so

Let me know

If I have some you can't get otherwise I may be able to help. I have a lot of cds and LPs that I can transfer to digital.

I'll look over your list. Email me an address.

Bob, Yeah I kinda dig Big Country :)

Bond, and Tim, thank you so much. I will keep you posted. I am touched by your generous and thoughtful offer. I knew other music people would understand.

Heard about your site on Isorski's blog, in case you were wondering. I have replied to you a couple of times before but you may not remember me.

I have a double CD "best of" David Bowie and Volume 1 and 2 of Styx's greatest hits (though I used to have a bunch of there stuff that I taped from other people's albums way back in high school, Pieces of Eight, Grand Illusion, Paradise Theater, Kilroy, the whole bit). Let me know what you are looking for and I'd be happy to help, one music fan to another...
