Attention music nerds: You can now explore one of the best record collections ever assembled using a beautiful new interface. The late British radio host John Peel had monumentally good taste in music. It goes without saying that it should be catalogued and made available to the public, but we’re in love with the catalogue’s easy-browse design.
Rather than just present you the with a list of albums and tracks like a boring library catalogue, Peel’s collection is displayed as shelves filled with records. Browsing the collection feels like the real thing, and if you come across something of interest, the site has handy links to iTunes. So far only the “A’s” have been completed, with the rest of the catalogue to be added — one letter per week — over the coming months. Yes, this is how you will spend the rest of the day your life.
