Music Matters

I’m messing about in between other projects with two new websites, after all it’s not that having five already plus twitter, instagram and livejournal is enough, right? Neither are really active yet, one just needs a final kick and some config work, news4tri.com will take over from my livejournal as a source to post triathlon commentary.

The second, ctproduced.com will be my music website. The goal being to post as much information as I can about every album and CD I own that was produced by the legendary producer, Creed Taylor.  That currently numbers some 230 albums, allowing for duplicates.

The basic layout will be a simple picture per release, which when selected would take the user to a more detailed page about the release. Each page would include pictures, some form of audio sample, links to youtube tracks, information pulled from discogs etc.

In playing around, I’ve been posting links on instagram and twitter under my “Vinyl to digital:” meme.

I’m looking for feedback. Does a single graphic with some basic information seem interesting enough? What additional detail would be useful on that first page? If you click on the image below, it will take you to an instagram post. The idea being the same sort of post for detail about the album, only more commentary, more detail, and hopefully if I can get the samples and licenses right, more audio tracks.
