    As they say, the addiction is real. I've been a music addict most of my life. It's my mother's fault and I'm happy to have inherited that gene from her.

    I was fortunate enough in my high school years (1970's) to work part-time with a group of San Francisco transplants who grew up in the heyday of the 1960's. Tales were told of concerts at the Fillmore, the Cow Palace, and The Beatles at Candlestick. Add to that an AOR radio station always on and a two-level Tower Records next door, and you can see where the problem really takes off.

    The LP collection is about 2000, CD's about 1000 and let's just say a whole lot of digital files. My home office doubles as my listening room so now I'm mostly playing the digital stuff through JRiver Media Center connected to a home-build RAID server. Rock, classic rock and prog make up most of my listening preferences. Toss in some classical, jazz and bossa nova for a nice shift change after having Speed King hammering the ears.

    Haven't checked out the vintage record stores here in the Charlotte area, as we recently relocated from Atlanta. One of my kids is at UGA, so when visiting there is the occasional foray into Wuxtry Records in Athens to browse in hopes of finding a gem.
