Go BIG, Vol. 2: Getting the Most from Your Hoopla Credits

Picked by: 
A Woman Listening to Lots of Music

To maximize your Hoopla borrowing power, we've compiled another list of super-sized musical collections.


This genre-jumping sampler includes career-spanning anthologies and jam-packed greatest hits sets. You can take a deep dive (51 hours of Grateful Dead!) into the catalogs of your favorite artists, or get adventurous and experience some engaging new-to-you sounds (spend some time with Fairport Convention).


This mountain of music – and hundreds of other high-quality compilations in the Hoopla treasure trove – provide a welcome diversion during these uneasy weeks.
