Since September 2010, this blog has recorded the journey of this middle-aged man as I attempt to listen to all the music in my CD collection. CDs revisited in their entirety from start to finish - no skipping tracks, no shuffle. CDs only - no vinyl, no tapes, no downloads. And just as CD technology (and the album format itself) becomes obsolete. I'm no music critic, just a music junkie with too much time on my hands.

Various Artists - ESPN Presents Jock Jams, Vol. 3 (1997)
This is another one of those (thankfully few) CDs I have no memory of purchasing and now that I've pulled it out and listened to it again, I can't imagine why I would ever have purchased it. Evidently there were 5 additional volumes to the "Jock Jam" series in addition to 3 volumes in the "Jock Rock" series and a "Slam Jams" compilation. None of those discs appear on my shelves. The Chicken Dance and C & C Music Factory have finally made an appearance on the blog; let's hope that doesn't become a regular occurrence.
Peak on the US Billboard Top 200 chart: #23
Tracks: If you've been to a sporting event at any level in the past 15 years - junior high basketball game to professional football game - you've been overexposed to these tunes. For the past three years, I've done the announcing and music selection for local high school baseball games and I've never even been tempted to use any of these tunes, although there's nothing wrong with the Tito Nieves, Republica, and KC & The Sunshine Band contributions here.
Personal Memory Associated with this CD: None, but I'm craving some popcorn.
