Rebuilding ones portable collection

I'm still working through recopying some of my albums for my music player as the masters are still stock on the dead laptop I can't unscrew by myself so that's been keeping me busy over the last few days which isn't so bad as I've not been able move far with damaging my left leg yet again (that side of me is 'weak' for medical reasons and easily damaged).
Up on the re-copying list was all five Police studio albums and the first two Sting Solo albums in their MFSL gold cd versions as I've always loved them, having them on cassette and minidisc for portable enjoyment.
I also have the police albums on 8 Track including Syncronicity from 1983!

As well the Eagles related artists albums such as those by Joe Walsh (and the tremendous James Gang) and Glen Frey of which I have a number on Audio Fidelity and MFSL 'audiophile' editions. Funk#49, Life's Been Good and Sunset Grill are staples of my classic rock playlist.
And finally all the Kansas band albums from the 70's and 80's that had again were stuck on the hard drive but copied this time to so-called lossless full cd quality so I can hear songs like Carry On Wayward Son, Play The Game and Fight Fire With Fire in tip top quality on the move.

If only you lived a bit closer to me - I'd relish the challenge of attempting to open up your dead laptop to extract the HDD (and hopefully find the music was recoverable!)...
