They definitely are getting harder to get. Fortunately for me, I got the vast majority of mine when they were released or shortly after in Sales. I've probably got rid of half of the total I did have as I replaced some with Blu Ray versions, where available, and traded some unwanted ones in to Music Magpie. I do like my music, especially live concerts. :)
I just Love Live Concerts , Just Bought Cold Play live 2012 and Jimmy Hendricks DVDs
More to indulge in for New Year Party.

I just can't Stomach Opera , kind of like a Dinosaur stuck in a Tar Pit.
As for musicals mostly NOT eg The Greatest Show man , Rocket Man , Sound of Music , These only
get on my Nerves kinda like scratching your nails over a Black Board.
If I was to see these at a Garage sale , I would walk on.
But we live in a World where everyone has different Tastes , But they can Keep them.
Yep. Some Opera is certainly as you describe, and I too would pass on it - particularly the heavy German stuff!.

The lighter stuff, like Verdi, I find pretty relaxing and quite beautiful. Mozart too - you'll have heard/seen the scene in The Shawshank Redemption where Andy plays a song from The Marriage Of Figaro! Don't know that anyone would describe that as a 'Dinosaur stuck in a Tar Pit'!

And of course, without Opera (or classical music in general) modern music would have nothing to 'borrow' from for their own inspiration!

But yes, we are all different - I can't stand Garage, Drill, or pretty much anything that comes from some riced up Fiesta sitting at traffic lights, thumping away with their 12" mini subs destroying their hearing! :D

Give me an eighties rock/metal band any day over that! We were spoilt for choice back then!:smashin:

Phil Collins Live in Berlin for me. Why, because I was there and it is the complete concert and every time I watch it all my fond memories of when I lived in Berlin and the barmy summer evening concerts at the Waldebuhne come flooding back which to this day is the most magical outdoor music venue I have ever been to.

I said Opera not Classical , I love a Lot of Classical about one Third of my CDs are.
Just remember most movies have some sort of Music in them.
My Music Spans a lot around the Sixty's but starts way before that 30s right through until now.
I do not like Head Banging Rubbish some idiot screaming incoherent Trash.
What ever happened to Rhythm and good old Lyrics from a happy time we all remember.
I have the Classics Beethoven , Brahms , Tchaikovsky, Holst , Mozart ect.
Then I have Mantovani , this sort of Music you can read to as it is Relaxing .
As well I have Clubbing Dance Music , Led Zeppelin , Pink Floyd all sorts to list here.

I think then, our musical tastes aren’t that dissimilar (opera excepted! :D ) - I can‘t claim to know much about 30’s music, but I enjoy 60’s onwards with most of the well known names somewhere in my collection, and a handful of lesser known too. Club Dance not so much, but Chillout certainly.

As you said earlier it’s good to have different tastes; certainly, I’ve heard stuff that others have been into that I wouldn’t have discovered by myself, and added albums to my collection that way. The car I bought last year has a music system in it that allows you to rip CD’s to its own hard drive - so I’ve inherited the previous owners‘ complete CD collection! There’s stuff in there that I skip every time, but there also plenty there that I’m really enjoying despite not originally being a fan!
