Feedback? seemed an interesting, slightly different way  to do this, as opposed to a chronological list.....I like hearing all the different versions of specific songs over the years.....

  2. That's a lot of covering....lol!! It took over a week to get together all the source CDs to pull over 5GB of music from. This will be a long series. :)

  4. This is immense work! The idea to make an alphabetical collection is a very good one too. It can be helpful when looking for versions of a specific song. I have always kind of compulsively looked for different versions of songs that I want to play alone or with my band or simply listen to.

  5. I figured this was a different way to list it...alphabetically. It came from many sources....I'll be listing this stuff for awhile...about 6GB worth of music...lol

  6. Great work!
    So many Django songs I haven't heard before. I like this alphabetical order, easy to find all different versions of same song.
    Thanks a lot and huge hug to you :)

  7. Thank you! I felt the same way. Chronologically just didn't seem to make sense to me....I just wanted to feel his work more from a musician's viewpoint than from the usual musicologist's angle....much more fun methinks! :)

  8. Although filing things alphabetically is quite common, music compilations are "normally" chronological or thematic. Having one alphabetical is certainly "out of the ordinary", which makes it "extraordinary". ;)

    Remember the "Why Be Normal" buttons back in the 80's?

  9. Exactly! It has to be different and fun. It's like listening to Anita O'Day....You never get the same song twice in a row. It's always like an abstract expressionist painting :)
