Sorry to have made it sound forbidding. Just download and install mp3tag. Open the software. Select File/Change Directory and point to the folder containing the Melos mp3 files. It will then display all the individual files and their tags. (You can scroll to see see tags off the screen to the left, change the display size for the tags or change their display positions, e.g. you can drag the Track heading to a more convenient place.)

And now I've gone and purchased even more CDs...... NOT the plan!

PS Thanks Parry
mmmm .. Still processing that EMI list. There are only 220 or so items on offer.
Whilst doing so I cross referenced amazon and other sources, and thought I'd check out Slatkin.
http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-lis...&condition=new VW symphonies
Slatkin doing VW might be a good thing. I know he was not universally loved while over here, but from the VW Prom programme last week I noticed/was reminded that he'd done a pretty decent VW performance at the Proms in 2008 - which I attended.
At under £10 from market place vendors this might be worth having or around £15 direct from amazon.
Unfortunately I also have the Rattle Mahler, which I thought was a bargain when I bought it. I've settled for Beethoven instead. Also the 20th and 19th Century masterpieces boxes look good (though I may have the 20th C already - can't check right now, so ordered anyway), plus the Composers in Person. A few others - Kovacevich doing Beethoven and Schubert. Leif Ove Andnes doing Schubert and songs and Schuman's violin concerto c/w Bernstein, hence the Slatkin interest. Bach with Kuijken was also appealing. Oh - and Show Boat!
I wonder if EMI will ever get round to issuing Kovacevich in Beethoven and Schubert in complete sets at affordable prices? I keep picking up odd ones in dribs and drabs, and they keep releasing them in new combinations - there's yet another Kovacevich 2CD collection to be released shortly. According to MDT some of the ones on offer will be deleted soon, but do I believe them? [obviously - the word "some" is not the same as "all"]

Reason: Composers - in Person
A few very good boxes which I have already (having paid slightly more for them) - Icons Gedda, Hans Hotter + Christa Ludwig and the Composers in Pesrson. At MDT's price I couldn't resist the two Record of Singing boxes.
That was a good concert. I too have partaken.

Don't forget Membran! I still haven't worked out where I'm going to keep the 'Masters of Music' box.
