Corona Virus Lockdown- Rediscovering CDs

Heading into week 2 of the lockdown (which is tightening over here by the day), I'm digging through the cd crates finding lost gems to listen to while staying productive. In the last 3 days:

-Outkast- Aquemini

-Sade- Stronger Than Pride

-Musiq Soulchild (1st cd)

I've been listening to various music but I was on a Graham Central Station kick yesterday.

Their debut album from 1974 is amazing and probably their best.

Don't laugh at my funk
This funk is a serious joint

I was looking for a different CD and found two copies of a Spice 1 CD that I forgot I had bought and might have even gone shopping for a third time. eek

It ain't easy. Problem is, approximately half of them are on a shelf while the other half are in eight storage bins (using Jewel Sleeves). Right now, I'm just working on the storage bins because those are more difficult for me to find CDs when I'm looking for one not shelved. Alphabetizing bin by bin then will combine. It's going rather quickly. I've been able to do one bin per evening although I haven't done anything for the past three days. The shelves are not alpha order but rather randomly by artist so those are a little easier for me to navigate. I may alpha the shelves, too.

I must say, even though Jewel Sleeves take up a hell of a lot less space I do miss my jewel cases because it was easier to see the spines.

I am basically in the same situation. A bunch of unorganized under-bed containers stacked tall.
