Don't forget ...

'stache, your trick of inserting a piece of paper inside the sleeve so you can put two in one sleeve. Brilliant!

storage

Oh, if you are talking about storage, I switch over to sleeves a while back. If you are a serious collector, you listen on CD, and you don't have a lot of space, you have to switch from jewel cases to sleeves. I have my entire collection (over a 1000 shows if you count JGB and related configurations) in a library card catalogue-style cabinet. The link will take you to what I have:

http://www.spinkeeper.com/chfilide.html

I don't know if that is where I got it from. It says it holds about 450 CDs, but if you use sleeves rather than the jewel cases, it must hold at least 2000 CDs, if not more. It is getting pretty full though :)

The best filing system

is whatever happens to work for you. It's your "file," right? So it only has to work for you. I wouldn't be in the least bit surprised to find that someone who requires a little adventure in their music might completely eschew the notion of any "system" at all. Nothing like blindly sticking your hand into the pile and seeing what fate has in store for you right now.

Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

Sorry dstache, I should perhaps have asked how other people "store" their C.D's. i.e on their shelves or C.D. racks. I have tried various options but as SimonT states sometimes the problem is the different sizes of the boxes which often makes things look untidy. I suppose I was just thinking out koud but nice to hear other viewpoints.

my GD CDs

are all in one box (another box of Jerry and related dead CDs)
I have the Picks sorted by volume - I maybe missing one or two - plus the fact that 2 or 3 are only in digital on my computer

as for all the live dead albums/shows I have on my computer I basically have folders based on the year recorded. this is a work in progress with my recent additions from the archives and vines.

I ponder how to file and have changed the shelves over the years, but here's how they now stack:

The studio CDs are together, then Dick's Picks in chronological order. The Road Trips are together in order of release date as I tend to listen to most recent first .... then a big shelf has all the main releases chronologically.

My logic is this. The size and style of the releases all differ, and being a former storeman I like things to look 'ordered' - and there's something magic about seeing a row of DPs and Road Trips all happily living side by side.

This does mean that particular eras are not together, but I tend to play more decent purchases and so Road Trips are now in their own section.

file

Do you mean "file" as in "list in a word or excel document"? I go in chronological order and have a column where I can put the source ID or other info such as "Dick's Pick # 14." Enjoying it is most important though!

Just out of curiosity how does everyone else file these releases? Never sure what's best do I go, official, Dicks Picks, Vault, Road Trips, or do I file according to date of gig or release date, or do I just need to chill and enjoy!!

Think I'll go and lie in a dark room.

Pure Jerry

I noticed that some of the Pure Jerry releases have also disappeared from the store. In particular - Pure Jerry: Merriweather Post Pavilion - September 1 & 2, 1989. Is it already out of print or just temporarily out of stock?
