I picked up a massive load of free cancelled CDs from the local library
Most of the ones I picked up are classical, but I also picked up another bag full of CDs which were ones I didn't know, which simply looked interesting based on their album artwork, which I didn't include in this post, but some subsequently ended up in here anyways. These are the ones I'm happy showing though, my favorite thing in there are the bach fugues, the bartok string quartets, and the grandest find of all so far is the glenn gould complete goldberg variations box set. A lot of other stuff I just picked up based off of recognizing the name of the composer. Presenting the CDs at the top of the pile is Hatsune Miku, Japanese android singing idol, who will guide you through the collection.

From left to right.

Wow, a great selection- you are very lucky. I would be in music heaven...listening to every one of them at least a few times, day after day...except the Cosby one!

Wow, what a haul! Lots of great stuff in there if you like classical music!

I had a similar windfall once. I used to subscribe to Gramophone, a British classical music magazine, and they had a contest once where the prize was 50 of their "Gramophone's Choice" CDs. So I entered and forgot all about it (I never win anything). One day I came home from work and there was this big box on my porch -- containing the 50 CDs! So I guess I can no longer say that I never win anything!
