"Macho Man CD Holder" (01).

“Macho Man CD Holder”

Today I played around with my camera a bit, showcasing my “Macho Man CD Holder” that I imported from the States years ago. It can only hold jewelcases and, if they conform to that size, digipaks, but I love the look of it. So, there […]

Tangerine Dream. Virgin Years 1974-1978.

Tangerine Dream – Virgin Years 1974-1978

While waiting for THE box set of the year (, I’m going to give much of the same material a spin now. Tangerine Dream. The Virgin Years 1974-1978. Great stuff! P.S.: The new box is called “In Search of Hades: The Virgin Recordings 1973-1979” (16CDs […]

Free. Songs of Yesterday.

Free – Songs of Yesterday

The next couple of hours will be spent with this one here. I have all their albums, but there are a bucket full of alternate takes, alternate mixes, single masters, stereo mixes and unreleased recordings on here that just make this a very worthwhile boxed […]

Andreas Vollenweider. Trilogy (2CDs).

Andreas Vollenweider – Trilogy

“The Trilogy” collects several early albums, all of which I had on LP as well. The sound of this collection is excellent and I’m just in the right mood for Vollenweider’s music just now. I listened to these albums endlessly in the 1980s.

Ed Motta.

Ed Motta Day

Most of you probably don’t even know this guy, but I’ve been enjoying an Ed Motta evening (Brazil) over here. He’s been criticized for being a copy cat (Steely Dan, West Coast, AOR) and unoriginal, but he’s also been nominated for a slew of prizes […]

The Police. Message in a Box (original longbox release).

The Police – Message in a Box

Again, the sound could have been better, but it was the easiest way – at the time – to double up on all of the Police material digitally. One of the few box sets onto which they actually dared to print a limitation number. Mine […]

Steely Dan. Citizen (1972-1980)

Steely Dan – Citizen (1972-1980)

Continuing yesterday’s “theme”, here is the next boxed set I bought. At the time, I only had “Gaucho” (still my favorite Steely Dan album, sorry guys & gals) and simply wanted the rest. “Citizen Steely Dan 1972-1980” is still one of my most played box […]

Journey. Time 3 (original longbox release).

Journey – Time3

This one here was the second (CD) boxed set I bought, way back in 1992. Back then, CD prices were sky-high here and these kinds of collections cost an arm and a leg. Because I was in the process of establishing a decent household, I […]

Aerosmith. Pandora's Box (original longbox format).

Aerosmith – Pandora’s Box

It’s “boxed-set-day” today. This was the first (CD!) pop/rock box I bought, way back in 1991 Actually, all the boxed sets I have from those years have that longbox format. Later, many of the early releases were repackaged, usually using more or less flimsy cardboard […]
