Huzzah for CDDB

Posted:

Sometime after the Y2K Apocalypse, I found myself in a Best Buy store just happy to have survived it all. As I browsed through the CD collection, I found an unlikely title from an unlikely publisher. PC World put out a collection of spirited classical tunes called ‘THE Y2K ALBUM: a doomsday collection for the coming crash.’ Of course, I immediately bought it.

Now, more than a year or so later, I decided to rip and encode this CD for my MP3 server, but I was fearful that CDDB wouldn’t have an entry for this admittedly unpopular and quirkly title. My fear dissapated as soon as Grip correctly reported all the tracks on the CD.

So I’m NOT the only one who bought this! Who’d a thunk it?
