That's cool, Jim! Do you actually log things as the year goes along, or do you just go back and recall? I have to say that your repeated playing of the 2Cellos disc inspired me to purchase it.

I use the program Music Collector that catalogs all my music. It has a place enter purchase date that I use to see when I acquired my newer discs. As far as most frequently played, that is from memory.

I believe several of us here use Music Collector from collectorZ. The product also has an Ap for your smartphone so you can sync with your laptop and when you are shopping you will always know what music and version you already own.

For those of you with large video or book collections there are versions for those too.

Jim,
Very good list, and a great thread. I'll have to check out the software, and you need to explore Mary Chapin Carpenter further. Try "Stones in the Road" first :^). I have them all BTW
Happy Holidays,
Jim

Thanks. I also have two other MCC discs. Her Time*Sec*Love SACD had some great tunes and I also have The Essential MCM to.
