Have you got so much recorded music on your shelves or computer that you can never envisage listening to even a small percentage of it ever again? I certainly have, but there is a strange comfort in knowing that it is there to be played at least in theory. A problem I find is deciding what to listen to, the choice is too overwhelming - I scan the discs, mainstream or obscure, and then revert to something familiar...

...must try harder.

You describe my situation exactly and I suspect it's not an uncommon one amongst our confrères.

Oh, for the days when an evening at the Crystal Palace, St James' Hall or the Covent Garden Proms was your sole musical delight (other than Auntie Alice's attempts at Rustle of Spring on the pianoforte)...
