When I started doing this I bought one of these large $50.00 c.d. suite cases from office depot. Now I have 6 of these and I hate them. I know their is a better system for keeping them in order and easy to locate. I just hav'nt figured it out yet. How do you keep your shows in order?

Now thats a problem I would love to have Clay.

At the moment I have all 22 of my assorted shows in a tin box.

You remember what it was like to have only that many don't you ?

Good Luck...if you can't find room..send me a case or two.

Good Weekend,
Kenny

I know what you mean....I have a very large cassette, CD and vhs collection...now i'm doing the DVD thing too..haha.

But that stuff gets scattered, I have a closet that I can only open if I want to spend hours looking for stuff.....need a weeks vacation to organize it.

And it's funny when you first started and you only had a handfull of stuff...then the next thing you know...your can't keep up with it....

I remember that first little cassette box held 12..and I was so happy to fill it up.........now it's buried under a thousand of them.

Later,
Kenny

Clay, rent some office space, fill it with filing cabinets, and hire a secretary.

But seriously, you may want to look at some larger music stores (the instrument kind, e.g., guitar center) and check out what pro DJ's use to organize everything. Not that I have experience in this, but I've seen some of those cases, and they look big, strong, and easy to organize.

I try to remember which pile of disks the show I want is in......

I use those cases too. The key is organization. I wish I used that key....

I buy jewel cases by the bulk and use the adhesive stick on spine labels. I fit a 3 disc show in a 2 disc jewel by flipping one disc over on top of the other, same with 2 in a 1 cd case,never had one scratched. For storage I just bought a 6ft. tall x 4ft. wide bookcase and added extra shelves w/ 7" spacing. Got 350 shows in protective jewel cases in the order they are on my list, and haven't used even half the space yet. A lot of shows in a small amount of space and easy as hell to find a show. About a half days work to build and forever to organize but well worth it

I usually keep all the shows I've listened to over the last (approximately) two months scrambled over my desk at school. It does get hard to find homework and things that way, but then, I didn't say it was a good system!
I do have one of those CD holders, but it's fairly small (couple dozen CDs), so it's way too tiny now, and it's not practical to buy more... besides, since I have more live recordings than studio albums, they're mostly in those plastic slip cover things. Oh well, I guess it's a good problem to have.

I use a CD holder for live shows instead of buying jewel cases, I have 500 studio albums which takes up enough room! My favorite case to use, can't think of the exact name, anyway you can find them at Wal-Mart, they each hold two hundred discs and the best part is that they are made like a three ring binder. You can add/rearrange pages very easily. Helps when you're a little anal like myself and like to have every show in order by date, earliest to latest....but I can find a show pretty quick! Good luck Clay!
Peace,
Josh

Hey just spoke with my brother, the brand name of our cases is Mainstays. Another great thing, they only run about $23, if you buy a 200 cd case at Best Buy or anywhere else they cost at least $40 to $50! Happy shopping!
Peace,
Josh

I use Case Logic Pro-Sleeves and write the show info on the little strip of paper and slide it in the slot at the top of the sleeve. (They even include the strips in the pack. Hmm, I wonder if that was the intended use for those!!!) The sleeves slide quite nicely into the slots in a regular CD carrying case, (one for jewel cases) and it's pretty easy to move them around. I've got a 30 CD holder for CDs in jewel cases that's currently storing almost 120 discs. This allows me to leaf through them like it's a file drawer and easily locate a show. It takes up a phenomenally small amount of space, and being in a sturdy plastic holder inside a zippered case, protects the discs quite well while conserving real estate.
Not as handy as jewel cases, but conserves space while still enabling easy handling.
Of course, it only protects those that are actually in the case, the ones scattered over my desk and all other available surfaces around my computer are suffering the elements. I'll straighten 'em up tomorrow...[Edited on 7/27/2002 by finklewicz]

I use a similar system, but I also print out the show info from the database and punch holes and put those in the binder as well ... use the date as reference ... Date the pages in large black numbers as well as the discs ....

There are 30 CD "cube" kind of CD (with jewel case) holders, designed primarily I think for the PC market, not so much music. They interlock top, bottom, and sideways with other cubes. So you can grow. You can build entire walls and even additions to your house with them. Personally, I don't like the sliding in and out repeadedly for discs that the other suitcase and folder type use. And my goal for retirement age is covers, covers, covers. Oh, and try to listen to 100 Trouble No More and find the truly best one.

I bought on of those cd holders which holds quite a few, I forget. I now keep my bootlegs in rectangular plastic tubs with lids. The plastic tubs are stackable and they are also clear. I think they may be about 12inches long. I stand the cds up in the sleeves. I use the tubs as a filing cabinet, so to speak. My abb starts after some ac/dc and Aerosmith. The abb fills up most all of the first tub and half of the second tub. Plus I have many Gregg Allman shows. So most of the first two tubs are abb and related. My other concentration areas are Lynyrd Skynyrd and Free.

My cds are labeled by permanent marker, dates, venues, names of the bands, and they are all sleeved in plastic sleeves. Some are case logic, others are generic. I find the case logic sleeves to be a little too tight. Some sleeves are also a little loose. Anyway, I have 5 plastic tubs mostly full of cds, and I back up the better shows with a copy. My abb shows which have speed problems, quality problems, have been moved to the big cd binder. I have 3/15/73 abb, in that sleeve, two copies of it since the speed is slow. I also have 1/1/74 abb,in there for the same reason, and also the full two cd version of 3/13/76. I plan to put those later to cassette, speed them up appropriately and then put them back to a cd. I can do this with my pitch control on my tape player, and I then use my pioneer consumer burner. Peace. [Edited on 7/30/2002 by SouthernMan]

We bought one of those CD/video furniture pieces. Our CS's are in alphabetical order. Our ABB collection is in chronological order. Of course it helps that we have a 300 disc CD changer, so once it's loaded, we just make up our Excel sheet to tell us what cd is in what slot. If you'd like, we can send a copy of this spreadsheet to anyone with MS Office that could use it. EMAIL to ask, please.

I use a system similar to josh's. I really prefer the 100 cd case to 200 but the mainstays package is priced too well to pass up, i use 3 of them. I hav ABB 1969-72 in one case, 1973-79 in another, 1989-Dickey's leaving in another, and Atl 2000- to present in another. Then I have 2 large cases for assorted artists, grouped by artist, but in no certain order. Then I have some smaller cases i got for $6 at Big lots that hold 48. One of them is all variations on CSNY, another mostly female solo aritsts, another couple for blues and classic r/r. I'm thinking after the summer/fall tour is over and i finish this years collecting i may convert to jewel cases and do cover art, etc

Clay,
Funny you should ask, I just found my CDR collection grew 200% or so. (I wonder from who?).....Anyway, I already have 500 or so perfectly ordered CDs in cases (by category, abc by artist, and then chronological). My live cassettes are arranged in date order of show in three different zippabl ecassette holders. I just went to Target this weekend and got a 96 CD storage binder (3 ring) for $9.99 to begin organizing my newfound CDR collection. (sorry I still can't burn CDs yet, but I always up for send and lends...)

Binders: A 208 for my store-bought CD's, mostly blues, folk, and 70's progressive rock, A 200 for ABB shows, A 96 for Mule and Phil, A 48 for Derek and Jazz is Dead, and another 48 for misc. shows.

Most of these are nearly full, so I'll probably have to think of something else pretty soon.
