i had 600+ cd’s before i got my decks, all in the bigger 200 cd cases. trawling the whole lot around with me each time i played out didn’t seem reasonable. taking my favourite 20 cd’s of the moment seemed limiting. what i now do is keep all the cd’s (in some kind of order) in the larger cases and keep a smaller one (i think it holds 48 cd’s) as the case i use for going out -Â theÂ equivalent of my record bag.Â i’ve been doing this for the last couple of months andÂ so far it seemsÂ to be working fine.Â
the other thing i find useful is to have some kind of bookmark so you can mark the place of the playing cd as you flick through the case. this helps me keep cd’s in whatever order i’d chosen, although i have to confess by the last hour of the night i’m generally jamming cd’s in any available spot (not a major problem as things have usually got a bit ‘freeform’ by this stage of the night anyway).
