What album (s) do you keep buying?

  1. It will come as a surprise to some but unfortunately for me it is American Life by Madonna, the box set.
    For some absurd reason I was sure that just like all previous special editions of hers (not many) it would sell out and become highly collectable and I would be able to exchange it with fans, or something. I also had money to spend, obvs, so I bought 12 copies.
    I still have them all. 12 copies of Madonna's worst album ever. Add a couple of regular versions, two of the vinyl.
    A close second is probably Donna Summer Live & More with possibly around ten copies, mostly all from different countries and including two of

  2. I would happily take a copy of that amazing Donna Summer picture disc off your hands if you have one or nine to spare!

  3. *quite jealous*

    I remember seeing the duvet cover for sale on a market stall when I was a kid but I wasn't allowed to have it.

  4. Similar story over here! I guess my parents weren't crazy about the idea of giving their son a Madonna duvet cover when he should be craving one with some footballer (he was not!). I didn't get the cover until about 10 years later, when a friend gave it to me (used but still in great condition).
  5. I wonder how many boys that True Blue duvet turned gay?

  6. Kylie Minogue's self titled album from 1994. I have about half a dozen versions of it.
  7. In bed with Madonna.
  8. For years, my most-repeated purchase was Hats by The Blue Nile:

    Original UK CD (pale blue label)
    Second UK CD (different font design on the sleeve)
    Third UK CD (pink label)
    US CD on A&M label
    Original UK CD as part of 2-disc promo set with Walk Across The Rooftops - "From Tinseltown to Downtown")
    Original UK vinyl
    UK 2CD deluxe

    But now with Tango In The Night all reissued and multi-formatting, it will soon take over I think...

    Original UK vinyl LP
    Original UK casette
    Original UK CD
    2017 Super Deluxe Edition
    ..and I will get the 2CD digipak next time I go to the supermarket.

    Plus my third variation of The Chain: 25 Years arrived today, so I have..

    Original 4CD hardcase edition
    Reissued 4CD edition in clear fatbox and card slipcase
    2CD "Selections from The Chain" in slipcase
  9. @UnionJackMix I would gladly purchase a copy of that boxset, if 12 copies is too much for you, haha.
    My multi-purchase album is Confessions, of course, three copies so far - pink vinyl, Japanese Deluxe and Special Edition... and I do have both the standard and deluxe MDNA, but I'll probably sell both and buy the Japanese version. One disc for the win!

  10. I bought the Japanese SHM CD of this a couple of years ago.

    As, I expect, did you!

  12. Electronic's debut album "Electronic" from 1991:

    Back in 1991 I purchased the US Import CD which had "Getting away with it" as the "extra" track (Warner Bros)
    I also purchased the UK cassette version for the car which does not contain "Getting away with it" (Factory)

    Then a decade later I purchased again on CD which does contain "Getting away with it" (Parlophone)

    Then in 2011 I purchased another copy CD which does not contain "Getting away with it (Factory)

    Then when I joined Spotify, I created my own version of the CD in a playlist which contains "Getting away with it" and "Disappointed" (Hairycub1969 playlists)

    Phew! I still own them all. The cassette I had to rescue at a "Brit Pop" party back in Summer 1996 as I saw somebody put it in their rucksack when they thought I wasn't looking.....I was fuming! But I managed to retrieve it when they were busy getting drunk!

  13. Luckily, they didn't get away with it.

  14. I most certainly did, and in case some don't know, they actually replicated the die-cut gatefold so that it is a genuine mini replica of the LP.

  15. That Live and More reissue is one of my favourite reissues. The sound is stunning and like you said it is a genuine replica. It should be in every music collector's collection!

  18. I seem to have acquired several copies of Kylie's Impossible Princess over time..... the original titled CD from Oz on import back in 97/98, a UK CD with hologram cover, the cassette version and the 2CD reissue..... of course if it comes out again as another reissue with bonus material I shall snap it up too......

  19. I bought two copies of Samantha Fox's I Wanna Have Some Fun and Expose's What You Don't Know on cassette. Just in case one broke.

  20. Good reason to get another one!

    I am starting to buy a second copy of digipak-issued CDs. I already need to get another copy of Grace Jones' Nightclubbing because that stunning cover has already been nicked!
