    Four years? That's daunting.

    What to do with the ones that have music by multiple composers? Stick an index card into the proper slot for each composer and have it point to the CD's location maybe.

    Just file alphabetically under artists surname.

    You hit it on the nail! It's that "flicking" that's maddening.

    I'd also say it's the same for movies. I seldom can stream a movie from start to end without being sidelined by something else on my computer/internet. The whole digital landscape is designed to be one big clickbait.

    That's why having a strict division between one's audio (or home theater) equipment vs. computer is good.

    I stick them where I prefer them if it's two composers. In my on-line catalog I have references for cases like this. CD's with more than two composers go in a separate file, split over orchestral, chamber, instrumental, vocal, and miscellaneous.


    Example:

    Albeniz, Isaac

    1. Piano concerto, Iberia suite, Catalonia suite, Navarra (Various, Regis)
    2. Piano concerto, Rapsodia Espanola [with Granados, PC] (BBCSSO, Brabbins, Hyperion)
    3. Iberia-orchestration Breiner (MSO, Golovschin, Naxos)
    4. Iberia-orchestration Arbos [with Falla - Three cornered hat] (Philharmonia, Tortelier, Chandos)



    Archived under other composers:
    • Rapsodia Espanola [see Falla, Nights in the gardens of Spain]
    • Suite Espanola etc [see Granados, Valses poeticos etc]
    • Azulejos {reworked Granados} [see Granados, Piano quintets etc]



    Archived under compilation CD's:
    • Recuerdos 6, Torre Bermeja etc [see Instrumental, Various, Spanish guitar music by Yepes]
    • Asturias, Tango, Cordoba, Sevilla [see Instrumental, Various, Spanish guitar music by Williams]
    • Asturias, Sevilla, Mallorca, Malaguena [see Instrumental, Various, Guitare festival]
    • Granada [see Instrumental, Various, Cavatina]
    • Mallorca, Tango Espagnol, Zaragoza etc [see Instrumental, Various, Arpa Española]

    In this particular situation, one might file one of these multi-composer recordings under the composer in which you bought the recording in the first-place. Like for example, if you bought a recording of Stravinsky’s Le sacre du printemps that was coupled with Strauss’ Schlagobers Suite, but you had bought this recording for the Stravinsky, file it under this composer’s name. Sometimes remembering why you bought a recording in the first-place is even more difficult, especially when you have as many as I do!
