And while we're on the subject of physical records we wonder if this might be the answer to a question we ponder now and then. "How big can a CD-box be?"
It's Karajan 1938-1960 released about a year ago. A box set of ... 117 CD's!

And as far as year end charts go the 50 Worst Albums of 2013 from Vice is now and again a slightly smile-inducing read. Although we haven't heard much of the music they sometimes get around to mentioning inbetween bursts of ... well, go check it out for yourself.
