1 Man, 9,000 Albums - Album Odyssey: An introduction

My friend Andrew is a man blessed with music. Through vocation and avocation he's amassed a collection of 9,000 albums. They occupy their own room in his home.

Andrew is also blessed with a loving and patient wife.

He's embarking on a project to listen to them all, start to finish, from A to Zed. Or in this case, from Kinny Abair to ZZ Top.

The hope is not to review these albums, per se, but to try and recall the context of their arrival in my life, a perhaps boring tale that might include music venues and record stores that have come and gone over the past 10 or so years. There will be something reviewish in there, perhaps a touch of biography, but also some preservation of a world of music consumption that might be dead when my kid pays for her first download.
It's going to be a fun trip. Check for Part 1 and future updates, or jump on the bandwagon via Twitter @andrewdansby.
