    I stumbled upon a record I have a hard time sorting alphabetically - what's your take on this?

    It's Live for Life OST in a slightly strange release... I believe it's the original score though...

    It's performed by the Motion Picture Orchestra - they are the only artist credited on the front and on the side of the album.

    However it's main composer is (as you all know) Francis Lai.

    But... there is one track not by Lai!

    So...

    Should I file it under M for the major artist credited.

    Should I file it under F (YEAH! No objections here, 6 months ago I decided to file every name by the FIRST and not the last name...) - so F it is (think L if you have to!) - F for the main composer.

    Or should I file it under V/A for the fact it's actually 2 different composers...

      Forget the 'alphabet' way - that's soooo 20th Century.

      Just do what John Cusack did in 'Hi-Fidelity'. Re-file everything in the order you found / bought or borrowed it.

      Then your collection is also a musical diary of your life.

      Simple eh?

      Sorry......I'll just get my coat.

          i was thinking how to sort my records coz i just got one of those handy expedit shelf things from ikea to fit my whole collection on..
          was going to go alphabetically then i though it would take to long. so i just put them in like sound tracks, rock, soul/ funk with my favorites at the front.. only thing is, if its like that, where does the superfly soundtrack go? coz its soul/ funk and a soundtrack and it has bits i could sample.. took me all afternoon to sort it now i cant bloody find anything..also the spoken word / strange / kiddie records shelf is rammed full and the grindcore shelf is nearly empty... itll probably take me till i move out to sort it then ill have to do it all again...

            My filing method:

            45s: remain unfiled on a shelf in the 45 closet until burned to a CD. Then filed alphabetical by genre.

            LPs:new stuff & favorite spins stay downstairs in the 45 closet (near the turntable). Other items go upstairs in the spare room.....although the LPs are quite jumbled, and I should go through them.......

              RIGHT ON!
              I was lookin at exactly that shelf at IKEA two days ago, thinking this could be perfect for vinyl!
              Please gimme some input on how it works for large record collections cuz I'm thinking hard about making this my next big purchase for my home.

                expedits are definitely a good way to go - rock solid and fit a decent amount of records. Each square unit in the shelf fits about 90 LPs, so if you get the 4x4, that's 1440 LPs safely shelved! and even I managed to put some together, so they must be easy!

                  I was quite interested in the 5x5...
                  Then I could fit over 2000 records in it...
                  How crammed are the records when you say about 90?
                  I like a little space so it's easy to flip through them and pull in and out stuff...

                    put them in the wrong sleeves, leave some out of the sleeves, leave some of them in a club, some in the studio, get pissed and give some away, put some in the kitchen, some under the bed, some in your daughters room, a few 45s in the toilet and leave some at doms.

                      I still advocate colour order, so that the spines make a nice spectrum across the wall...
                      You freeking scientologists are all the same, quible, dribble and then demand ice creams. Ohhhhhhhhhhh.

                        heres my story...
                        i bought the tallest ikea bedroom wardrobes - flatpacked naturally - sawed the depth of the unit down till they were about thirteen inches deep - bought extra shelves for double strength. fitted them to either side of the chimney breast and bought the poshest oak /g-plan-esque doors in the store.

                        ALL my records (and deck, amp and speakers) are in the living room 'behind closed doors) and my wife is pleased as punch.

                            i got the 4 X 4 expedit couldnt fit the 5x5 one in my room as theres not enough room. quite easy to put together apart from the very last bit. only £69 for the 4x4 so aint to bad and it fits all my stuff on apart from the crap in the garage.. i really should throw it all out but theres about 300 ish records out there all stuff like top of the pops records and a some classical, frank sinatra usual car boot stuff (anyone wanna take it all of my hands???)..
                            id definatly recomend buying one ive wanted one for ages.. so now nearly everything is sorted out propperly.. ish
                            now i gotta go thru and sort out all my trades as when i moved it all i noticed i got sometimes 3-4 copies of things.
