What album (s) do you keep buying?

  1. You know what I am talking about. That album you love so much that you want to re-experience buying it again. Or the record label keeps reissuing it and you just have to purchase it again. Or you just need one "for the car".

    For me it is Fleetwood Mac's Rumours which I have the 2004 reissue, the deluxe set and the DVD-A.

    Also Kylie's Aphrodite. I tend to find new, sealed copies in thrift stores so I can't help myself. Plus I have the 3-CD set.

    Come on, we won't judge.
  2. I've bought pretty much the whole back catalogue of these artists at least 3 or 4 times over various formats...
    Depeche Mode, The Cure, Siouxsie & The Banshees, Alison Moyet, Erasure
    Grace Jones, Eurythmics, New Order, Curve, Slowdive, Duran Duran, Bjork
    Madonna, Kylie, Kate Bush, Cocteau Twins, Sinead O'Connor, Japan/David Sylvian
  3. ABBA Gold...I have at least six copies of that Pop Bible.

  4. Oh, yes, I forgot about ABBA Gold. I will probably buy it again someday.

  5. For me it's any Blondie album.
    I have multiple formats, box sets, limited editions etc.

    I have 5 versions of the new album Pollinator on pre order including a cassette version. How retro.

  6. I think the album I've bought the most (it's not my fave of all time though) is Tori Amos's 'Under the Pink':

    - original Australian CD, bought in March 1994
    - bought the CD again in July 1994 to get the 'free' Under the Pink Video Collection VHS
    - bought it again in November 1994 as the 2-CD tour edition with 'More Pink' b-sides collection disc
    - got the UK vinyl edition of it in 2002
    - bought the 2015 2-CD remastered reissue, which I haven't yet listened to

    I also got the sheet music book for the album in 1994.
  7. The albums I have bought the most would have to be Kylie's PWL albums


    Originals at the time on cassette
    First three in a CD boxset in the 00s
    Let's Get To It iTunes download
    Cherry Red 2CD versions
    Cherry Red deluxe reissue boxes, ludicrously overpriced at £59.99 each but ordered on the day of the announcement

    I would cheerfully snap up a Kylie PWL singles boxset too!
  8. Album I've definitely bought most is (What's the Story) Morning Glory by Oasis. Had it on cassette, CD twice and then I got the 3 disc deluxe version in 2014.
  9. Every re-issue, special packaging etc of albums from Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Diana Ross and Pet Shop Boys. From just these four artists I have around 1.200 CD's (including singles, promos etc).

    Madonna's True Blue is probably the one I have the most editions of - loads of different CD's, LP's and MC´s.
  10. Mariah's catalog is the one I've bought the most variations of. I think I have 9 different versions of Daydream?

  11. This is one of my most "repurchased" albums and proud of it!


    Cassette, Wounded Bird 1CD reissue, Cherry Pop 2CD reissue.

  12. Probably Olivia's Physical album.

    U.K. LP and cassette 1981 (I actually bought 3 copies of the LP as I kept wearing it out!)
    Early US CD
    Video album 1982
    Australian and Japanese CD remasters in the late 90s
    U.K. CD remaster 2004
    US LP because it came with a poster
    Japanese SACD 2012 (best version yet)

    Somebody shoot me!
  13. I feel like I should stage an intervention.

  14. I think there will be a handful of people on here for whom the answer is 'Foxbase Alpha'.

    I've only bought it twice, thrice if you include 'Foxbase Beta'.

    I think there are a few albums I own, or have owned, four copies of. New Order's 'Low-life' and The Smiths' 'Hatful of Hollow' spring to mind. Three copies of Erasure's self titled, too.

  15. Confessions on a Dance Floor, at one point I had three physical copies of the same regional CD release.

  16. Me too! When I won the third copy in a radio contest I thought it would be best to give that one away...

  17. Come to think of it my pre-order bundle of 'Home Counties' flies in near the top of the chart on the day of release (delivery):

    LP with download
  18. I have the Japanese reissue with the DVD of the Hung Up and Sorry videos and making-ofs for both videos plus two or three copies of the domestic release.

    EDIT: I would gladly buy this album again.
  19. @2014 reported to ban.
  20. I have that version as well. Love it! Also have several different regional releases, including one from Taiwan in a pretty slipcase. Oh, and the pink vinyl of course...
