Christian. There is nothing else of significance about me.
I listened to albums from 1970 to 2004.
Towards the end of this period I was struck by the truism that I have only a finite time in which to listen to earthly music. This obvious fact became of immense significance to me, given the vast amount of music which I love to hear. You may recall that I carry around with me at all times 32 hours of my favourite music, but listening to that takes up only a tiny amount of my listening time. I listen to music at every available opportunity.
Anyway, it occurred to me that 40 minutes or so was far too long a time to devote to just one artist; there was just too much music to go at. Moreover, I found I liked the variety of compilations. This was a sort of throwback to the cassette days, where I would find myself really looking forward to the “filler” at the end of each side.
