Well, I don't see me as a collector, but a fan and, last but not least, a listener. I buy stuff that I like and if I dislike some records, I sell them.
I don't care about complete discographies...if a band releases 10 albums and I like only 7, I will skip the other 3 albums...but I can become very obsessive when I really worship a band...so I am hunting for bootlegs and rehearsal stuff.
Sometimes I am in the mood to clean out my collection from stuff I bough in LP packages 20 years ago. Of course, I have a huge collection, but I try to keep it as big as it is. I always sell some stuff to buy new stuff...but there are many collectors out there who simply buy every colour of each album they like...this seems to be very strange...I always prefer black vinyl and sometimes I buy CDs...not the format is the important thing, but the music itself I think.


This. I have no interest in owning a band's entire discography if they went for a sound I don't care for on later albums. The point of owning a collection, above all else, is to listen to the music. I can't see that ever getting old.
