Oh, I see. I only scanned a few. Most album cover art is available online. A Google image search or just looking on Amazon or even Ebay can find most cover art.

For the Sisters covers, I did spend a little more time– I had to scan in a few that I couldn't find online. I also went to the trouble of getting them all to the same scale, cleaning them up. These took some time, most of the covers in my iTunes only took as much time as an Amazon search, then a drag and drop.

Digitizing vinyl (needle drops) will take you some time. Once you get it set up, it should take you the time to listen to the songs, plus the time to type all the song titles, and depending on how you sample them, the time to separate out the individual tracks from the sample. You generally get two samples from each album (side A, side B), then you have to find the spaces, select each song, copy it to a new sound file, then save. Then go back and name all the files. Copy them into iTunes (or whatever software you use), and then download the album art, and paste it in.

Go for it.

I'm not iTunes illiterate, but I can't for the life of me figure out where to find the "never played" information. Help me Obi-Wan...

I think my iTunes came with a default Smart Playlist called "Never Played." Regardless, it's easy enough to make:

1. From the File Menu, select New Smart Playlist...
2. In the dropdowns, select "Play Count" "Is" and type 0, and click OK.
3. Name the new playlist "Never Played"

That's it.

Am now down to 230 out of 4246! A measley 5.4%! (I've been at home a lot over the last few weeks with the 'puter going.
Listened all day today while cleaning.)

Full disclosure: I also deleted a few things I knew I didn't care for or were badly recorded (boots).

1,787 / 9,756 = 18.3%. I'm on track with reducing it by 100 each week...

Argh. My "never-played" list crashed. Fuck you Bill Gates. I made a new one, but it picked up a lot of things that I know I've listened to recently.
So now I'm back up to 1156 / 4413.

I give up.
Goodbye cruel thread.

I just noticed that some of the songs I have not listened to are live versions of songs that I do often listen to the studio versions of.

I think a lot of the unlistened songs are like, "reserve songs".
