  • What's the most embarrassing CD/tape/record in your collection?

    I saw this on another board and could not stop laughing at some of the selections... So, what musical selections do you own that cause you to scratch your head wondering, "what was I thinking?"

    I'll go first - somewhere, deep in storage, I own several Bon Jovi albums, "Muppet's Disco" (yes, there was such a thing!) and, along with my brother, we once owned the worst album in human existence..."The Dukes of Hazzard Tape" was a gift...really...

    I inherited some og my mother in laws records. To decide which one was the worst is a very har decision but I would have to say a Max Bigraves Album would have to go very, very close.

      Oh, I have so many...

      Just off the top of my head, I have "A Classic Case - The London Philharmonic Orchestra Plays the Music of Jethro Tull".

      I have another one called "The Music of Cheops", which sounded cool from the cover, but in actuality is 45 minutes of solo improvisational flute music played into a portable tape recorder (inside the pyramid of Cheops). Of course, that's exactly what the cover said, but somehow I imaged it sounding better.

          And the winner is... Vanilla Ice! (I think I might have a Milli Vanilli also)

                Not as bad as William Shatner's attempts to sing! ...although looks like they were a team on one album...The Best of Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner

                scary...very scary...

                  Disco Duck (45 rpm)
                  Played as a teaching aid when I taught 'disco' in another lifetime on a planet far, far, far, far away.

                    Music from the '60's --The 3D's Poetry Album
                    by CJ Swartz
                    Any of you folks listen to folk music in the 1960's? If so, do you remember a unique album which added music to well known poetry -- New Dimensions in Folk Songs. The writers/artists were the 3D's (now listed as the Original 3D's since there's a current group with the name, I guess).

                    I miss album covers
                    by Doug Nelson
                    Al's comment over in the "let's talk music" thread reminded me of how album covers are responsible for RetouchPRO existing.

                    Not those little CD covers that you can't even see, but the big LP covers, especially those from the 70s. It was these covers that made me, as a pre-teen,...

                    by BigAl
                    I splashed out this week and bought a whole bunch of new music CDs. Of the lot I can recommend the following:
                    Classical Graffiti: The Planets (snippets here. really good looking young people, one of whom comes from Chris H's neck of the woods).
                    Zebra Crossing: Soweto String Quartet (South...

                    Avoid Feltpens on CD's
                    by thomasgeorge
                    I just read an interesting little blurb concerning digital archiving from, I believe it was the Rochester Institute of Technology, and there was mention made to avoid marking on CD's with regular felt pens as the solvents etc. in them can attack the CD coating, migrate to the data surface over time...

                    Is anyone using this program? I like what I have seen in the short time I have played with the demo. Just wondered if there were any quirks with the software. The demo has a few issues.

                    No hurry in the reply. I'm going to bed soon.
