Just rediscovering CD/LP I already own is amazing!

I tend to take a chance on CD I find in bargain bins of bands/musicians I know but never really got into. In average, I am seldom floored by the quality and understand why I did not pay attention the first time around.

Youtube is a great way for me to select music. There are so many artists/bands that are hailed as "amazing" that end up being only OK to my ears. Very few make it to my collection.

But the joy of discovering something great is still giving me a kick. I only yesterday discovered the music of Ben Harper!

What I have noticed is that I do not need to buy everything straight away. And I can spend weeks without listening to new purchases. Like old wines, some albums sound better today than they did on the day of purchase. That is a great thrill to me: listening to something I thought was OK only to realize that it has grown on me to become great 20 / 30 years later!
