On Sunday I did something I wanted to do for years: I re-organised my vinyl collection.
My previous 'system' looked something like this:
One effect of this 'system' was that 'Master of Puppets' was located in the 'before 94' stash, while 'Metallica' (aka The Black Album) was in the other. Which sucked.
The new system has all records (aprox 400) in one big stash, except Classical, Kids and Spoken Word.
Everything is sorted first by alphabet (on whatever letter pops up first, ignoring 'the' and 'DJ', (i.e. Michael Jackson is filed under 'M') and then by release date (i.e. 'The Streets' are filed under 'S', first 'Original Pirate Material', then 'A Grand dont come for free', then 'The hardest way to make an easy living')
7" and 12" are stored in a different place alltogether, but I don't have that many of them anyways (~30 in total)
Next: Put all vinyls into the DB...
