Mosaic has a lovely Benny Goodman Orchestra set that I have my eye on. I’ve been going through my music lately, doing a little tidying, and I’ve discovered I have only a couple of Benny Goodman Orchestra albums. This must be rectified.
I know it’s just an obessive ‘must have’ completist type thing, but… must. have.
On other (related) fronts, I have been blowing through my 50 emusic downloads not within a month, but within a few minutes after my account ticks over. I can’t possibly get by with these few songs. It’s just not possible. Again, this is crazy ‘must possess all’ thinking. But then, I must. And emusic is really wonderful – it has all those chronological classics. And quite a few other hard-to-get indy labels. And that’s just in the ‘olden days jazz’ section. I’ve glanced through the 50s blues, but I really haven’t even begun to look at anything else.
Think of me, in my obsessive compulsiveness this week. I think I might ‘back up’ my downloads with CD copies. Nerd ON!
