Ripping to MP3 the Collection of Another

Ripping CDsOne of the best things I ever did for myself was rip my entire CD collection into MP3s. You can read about this here and check out my collection here.

Back in January, I wrote about RipDigital, a company that will rip your entire CD collection into MP3s for a hefty price. I offered my MP3 consultation service free of charge to anyone who was interested. A friend of mine with an extensive CD collection took me up on the offer.

Right now there are two large garbage bags full of CDs belonging to this friend of mine sitting in my basement. I'm going to rip his entire collection and return to him his CDs along with blank CDs containing his new MP3 collection. It's going to take a while, but I'm already enjoying it. The vast majority of this tunage is the blues, and I'm having a fantastic time listening to songs like "Turtle Twist" by Jelly Roll Morton, "Dust My Broom" by Elmore James and "Stones in my Passway" by Robert Johnson. This is a very cool way to hear cool tunes I wouldn't normally stumble upon. Maybe I should be paying him for this opportunity?
