How many copies have you bought?

Postby Guru » Fri Oct 13, 2017 11:29 am

Looking ahead to November when some of us will be buying two more copies of NOTW, I wonder how many times you've already bought a new copy(not secondhand)

Original vinyl?
Original CD?
Remastered CD?
Box set containing vinyl?
Box set containing CD?
US Import CD?
Reissue vinyl?
Reissue CD?
Box set containing vinyl AND CD?

What's your most-bought Queen album?

NOTW Original vinyl only. :)

Because that's all I need. One copy for home, plus a ripped mp3 version for 'on the go'.

I did start to 'replace' the cassettes/albums with CD versions some years back but only got up to ANATO. Then I thought, why bother? The old vinyls still sound great to me. I just replaced my disintegrating cassettes of the 80s stuff with CDs.

Then I stopped.

I am possibly not the target audience for this thread :D

On the contrary, all are welcome. "Two" is a legitimate answer.

I suspect for me it will be NATO, with about five:

Original CD
1991 Hollywood CD
The 20CD box set
Two DVD-A editions

I bought all albums from Queen I to The Miracle on first day release, all on vinyl of course, in the 80's i replaced all on CD.
I also have all singles from Keep Yourself Alive to Bo Rhap/Days of Our Lives on 7 inch single, most in picture Sleeves.
