I'm looking at changing my music management software and am looking for recommendations.
In the past I managed things manually, e.g., create folder for artist, create folders inside for each album, rip the CD and put in appropriate folder.
A few years back I got an iPod Touch and started using iTunes. It's heavy and clunky, but it worked well for managing the iPod and playing music while working. And it handled management of my files, although I expect Apple snoops upon people's non-iTunes purchased music.
But ... the iPod died (battery failed completely at the 2 year mark, speaker died as well) and Apple wanted $150 to fix a $200 unit. [IMO a non-replaceable battery should NOT die in 2 years.] While I liked the iPod, I can get players in the $20-$50 range, and have no interest in buying another Apple product. With no iPod, I'm ditching iTunes.
I looked at recent reviews and MusicBee seems to be the hands-down winner. I installed it and am giving it whirl. As part of this I'm re-ripping my entire Tull collection, as iTunes defaulted for MP4 and everything else uses MP3.
What managers are good, and why? I like free, but am not adverse to paying a reasonable amount for a good product.
Thanks guys, yes it was in Wuppertal Germany and I believe there were three or four shows with choir. It was not a Christmas show. So I thought it might be interesting to hear what ian did with the choir-there are some videos on YouTube but I have not had a chance to look at them yet, and don't know if they are from other years.

snaffler: I haven't listened to anything as refreshing for decades (re Jethro Tull), as a couple of recordings of Martin's 50th Anniversary US tour! The songs sound so reinvigorated by Dan Crisp's vocals. I saw Martin last year and the vibe in the band seemed great

steelmonkey: I still don't feel like I have learned and integrated the 5 songs that were written for the opera. I wonder if and when they will ever be available besides the version snagged from a live show that I listen to now and again.

JTull 007: The Jethro Tull Forum is not on Facebook but there are some called The Jethro Tull Board or Group that have been quite abusive to TRUE TULL Fans. This Forum is very open minded and not so childish.

dryad: Hey, I'm shouting out because I can't figure out how to post in the "Hello, I'm new Here!" post. I cam over here looking for Samhain songs. I'll roll with "Songs From the Wood" if no one knows of something specific. I'll do the hello if I can figure it out
