Exactly, or even better, take it a step further and use a decent piece of software.

As I stated before in Urban's thread, my collection is divided into two parts and kept separately from each other.

My CD and vinyl soul collection is arranged alphabetically, first according to label, then sub organised according to catalogue number.
And God have mercy on anyone that fucks with it.

I also have (for the Northern Soul comp CD's) a very weighty file binder (see pic below) organised in alphabetical order, according to song title > artist > CD title > CD catalogue number.
That way I can put my finger on any song much quicker than trying to remember which CD it's on.




All other genres are arranged alphabetically by artist.

I think that's part of the fun. The way the shelf order evolves and the way you have to really ask yourself if you still love a certain album as much as you used to.

That binder just blows my mind.


...and I wonder who dared to vote "Genre" after Urban's rant.

Loose genres. Very loose. Like, rock, harder rock, pop, classical, hip-hop, electronica, Teenage Fanclub.

Alphabetical by artists within genres.
