I think there are, like, 62 people who can say they were in the Beach Boys. Even a coupla South Africans. I own it, but I can take the Surf Music for long. OK, not at all. So I jump onboard at Sloop John B and go from there ('65 foward).

I'm glad some of you have your own festivals, random play or not. Random isn't the same though. Doing it in order really tells a tale, especially if you weren't old enough. or even alive, to have consumed them in order upon being released.

Waiting for the "next" Beatle album used to be torture. And unlike artists now, they arrived relatively on each other's heals.

I tried Pink Floyd, right when all the remasters came out (they're still coming!). My shop gets very little natural light and it gloomed me out, so I only played 8 or 9.

Bob, excellent post. I don't think I've ever tried the entire catalog from start to finish in chronological order, but I will give it a shot.

I'm still a fan of listening to an album from start to finish. The random digital file playback doesn't appeal to me yet. Instead, I prefer each album as a creative whole.

Often, when I discover a new artist, I like to do some research and I try to buy his or her or their catalog chronologically. There is a creative progression, sometimes better or worse, that can be rewarding.

Tonight I'm listening to Liquid Tension Experiment on my studio monitors (since my Axioms aren't scheduled to arrive until tomorrow).

My brother and I did the catalog thing with the Doors back in about 1978. We rented an A-frame and had a weekend-long party to celebrate Morrison's birthday. We meticulously recorded the entire catalog onto cassettes in alphabetical order. Bear in mind, this wasn't easy, as it was all on LPs. First we had to compile a list of all the songs and alphabetize it -- without a computer, either. Anyway, it made for a great weekend!

Thanks for that whipper, I have not heard of them before but listening now on Slacker. I love this style, it's good for me to work to. I also really Porcupine Tree (thanks to another forum member) and Chad Smith's Bombastic Meatbats are another fantastic instrumental group. Only hours to go now for the delivery!

Bob - great idea on the chronological album listening sessions. I'll have to try that to fill my excessive time driving between cities. Hmm, where to start?

Listening to an artists recordings in chronological order is a great method of charting their progress. By the end of the listening cycle you are either really impressed by the growth/musicianship or wondering what the hell they have been up to all these years grin
