My new Windows Phone (which I dislike as I have said several times) has one good feature: it can hold a load of music.  I have literally hundreds of CDs and inevitably some have got stuck at the bottom of piles.  I had ripped some to my PC but I have spent several hours this weekend ploughing through the collection trying to get them all on PC.  That is more than will fit on the phone, but I am selecting favourite albums (and some greatest hits) as I go.  It is a slow process as I am having to manually enter track listings for most of the classical ones.  I also have a few obscure ones like Cab Calloway which it didn't recognise.

As I write this, West Side Story is in the drive.  That isn't one of my favourites.  Next up is John Rutter's Requiem which is followed by a Grieg collection.  The "classical" ones had been stacked separately.

The phone has some classical (The Four Seasons, Verdi Requiem, some Mozart, several organ compilations) but mostly it is rock.  For listening on the move I prefer something which is engaging and preferably loud to drown out travel noises.  It'll be fun over the next few weeks rediscovering some CDs I had forgotten.

On top of that a friend (thak you) has sent me a CD of things I might like to try out.  There are 600 tracks on that.  I'll listen to that over the next few weeks as well.  I'll then buy the full CDs of any groups I like on there . I believe in supporting the artists by buying anything I am going to keep.  Hopefully that will add some new things to my phone over the next couple of months as well.
