Since practically all of my favourite bands have released at least one shitty record in their career by now, I am gladly cured by the neurotic obsession of having complete collections. Also, the internet killed a lot of fun regarding record-hunting.

As for re-releases: Couldn't care less as long as they stay true to the originals (no new artworks, censored parts etc.). I don't feel better with an original release from 1985 when I actually bought it in 200something. But of course, if it is affordable and crossing my way in the right moment, I take it.

Plus I don't think I ever had more than 500 records in general (all formats included). Some new stuff comes, other old stuff goes. Everything else would be waste of space.

Absolutely agree on all counts. Quality over quantity is my philosophy.

About 10 years ago I used to work in a used records store. Payment days were really sad, I was used to not get paid 'cos of all of the records I took home.

Those were great days Very Happy

Must've been fun but you have to weigh getting a shit load of records every week or working in a record store for the rest of your life. Laughing
Just some food for thought.

this. I have been known to chase complete sets for no apparent reason (not this having all colors, pressings, etc crap. just one of every release) and even then when times get tuff, or down the road I reevaluate and realize it was mostly pointless and a waste of money doing so. at those points I usually "purify" my collection, and those proceeds simply go onto obtaining more albums. I have been doing this a lot lately... its a constant cycling process of weeding out good from shit

also REALLY agree on the internet factor. its a horrible double edged sword that has mostly ruined the fun or appeal collecting once had. especially when businesses stick rare releases straight to the internet instead of storefront. I find it hard to get motivated to go to most shops now days. who has hours to dig through straight CRAP and not come out with anything? I end up finding myself lucky if I can walk away with some funny/decent dollar land bullshit record

You guys should concentrate more on the albums you DO have instead of the ones you DON'T have. If you've made it (insert_your_age) years without a record, you'll be just fine not having it awhile longer.

Just play and enjoy the records you do have. Put them on the turntable. Flip through them and remember why/where you bought them, when the last time you listened to each one was, etc. You'll NEVER have every great album in the world, no matter how hard you try to, which is a good thing because even if you did have them all, you wouldn't have time to actually enjoy/learn each one.

I try to only hold onto stuff I listen to often. Stuff I haven't listened to in years usually ends up being traded or sold.

This is the best route to go I think. Time is very helpful in determining which records should stay and which should go.

I think that Chris/Demonomancy dude would be a millionaire now if he had registered the rights to his legendary "when will come" quote.
