There used to be a saying, in the days of LP recordings - “I’ve worn out the grooves of that record“, meaning that you’ve listened to the record seemingly countless numbers of times. I’m not sure if the grooves literally wore out, possibly they did if you didn’t replace the needle frequently enough.
Anyway I wore out Michelangeli’s Debussy Images I and II when it came out around 1970. Ditto De Larrocha’s Iberia recorded in 1962.
Of course this can apply to CDs and streaming to accommodate modern times.
