Breaking 100 GBs of Music

2007.06.08 Led Zeppelin in Osaka

Today I finally broke the 100 GB barrier on my digital music collection! The collection rings in at 17,653 songs, 55.2 days in length, and 100.18 Gb in size. And it has only taken me 8+ years!

Thankfully, the record setting record was Led Zeppelin’s live set from Osaka, Japan on September 29, 1971. This was unintentional and could easily have been one of the more questionable acquisitions recently (Alan Jackson’s GH, Bee Gees GH, etc).

You know they are in Japan by the tranquilness of the crowd. A third of the way into the show, Robert Plant says, “Good evening,” to which barely a rumble is heard in the audience. “You’re much to quiet,” he scolds, “much too slow, too silly, and fast asleep.” He later praises their politeness.
