How anal are you about organizing your music collection? - Page 2

post #16 of 17

I'm obsessive.  Roughly 30K songs are all in (## - Name.ext) format.  All 2000+ albums have their own named folder, which are placed in each groups folder.  Artist names are changed so "The" is after the bands name, so that alphabetizing is perfect.  (Example:  "Rollings Stones, The" instead of "The Rolling Stones").  Names begin with last name first.  (Example: "Bruce Springsteen" is renamed to "Springsteen, Bruce")  All tags are maintained meticulously except "Genre".  I tried this but there is just too much genre over-lap to get things perfect enough for my liking.  I've also taken every double/triple album/box sets and re-numbered them so they are combined in one sequential album.  I keep a JPG of the cover-art in every album folder as well.  I have a spreadsheet with even more information and personal rankings for every album I own.  I you ask me what my top 15 albums of 1975 are, I'd have the answer in 2 seconds.  You want to know what year is my favorite for music?  What decade?  No problem.  I'd be locked away in a straight jacket, if anyone knew the full extent.

I rely on the "Disc x of y" tag to keep multi-disc albums straight in my library. In folders, I'll append a disc number to the front of each track filename, so for example the first track of the second disc would be "2-01 <whatever it's called>." This encodes information about the number of tracks per disc and which disc it is in series, as well as making sure everything is ordered properly.
