I have my record collection on a spreadsheet. Just for fun, I added genre tags to each album. I had some decisions to make, such as what to make of Hendrix, whose music is equal parts blues, hard rock, and psychedelic rock... I went with "psychedelic rock" as the least bad option. For the Rolling Stones, I went with "blues rock", although they're really the closest thing to unhyphenated rock.

My CD collection is just sorted alphabetically by artist name, and chronologically within the same artist. No heed of genre; I do not even distinguish between "classical" and "popular" when I sort my CDs. (This even though I have some fondness of genre classifications - but I know that the boundaries are blurry to the point that genres are unhelpful in sorting music.)

Oh, this is how I do it too. I said I added tags to the spreadsheet; I haven't changed the physical layout. I'm considering trying to make a database instead of a spreadsheet, incidentally, but I'd have to learn how to make a database.

I do keep "classical" CDs separate, though; mostly because they're sorted by composer, while popular music is sorted by performer. I also keep "soundtracks" separate, because they're sorted by title.
