To me, there is no point in having multiple copies of the same albums, regardless of format/packaging/etc. I’ll pick up a reissue if it has bonus tracks, but then I’ll get rid of my old copy. However, I generally prefer having the original issues so if, for example, said bonus tracks are B-sides to a single then I’ll get the single instead of the reissue.
I will buy multiple copies of something its cheap enough,but never full price If I already own it ,I've found quite a few albums for dirt cheap at second hand stores and such that I would buy again just because they are cheap or something to that effect, for example I found Uncle Slam's When God Dies, Gang green older budweiser and New Eden Obscure Master Plan at a dollar store, so I got all I could find.

Here are two artists whose discographies I recently completed:

Agony Column – the best thing to come out of Texas!

Rhiannon Tomos – one of my favorite female singers, it’s just a shame she released so little material (one solo LP, 3 compilation tracks, and a lone single as the singer for doomy Welsh NWOBHM masters Y Diawled.)

One shitty album I will never buy to complete my collection is Celtic Frost - Cold Lake! Awwwwful

Never have owned it & never will!
I'll send you mine! :lol: Its the only one I own. I got it in a bulk collection.

I collect thrash/speed metal from '83 - '93 - the whole scene. It's an neverending road and I'll never complete it, but I love everything about it - the collecting itself and the music, of course (OK, I don't like crazy prices like this

Holy Cock! :shock:
I'm quite satisfied w/ the LP, thank you. Pretty good one as I remembered it, but nowhere near the mucho underrated RED HARVEST debut when it comes to the HUGE Norwegian Progressive Thrash scene.. :wink:

Yeah, and if you read good, it says that the CD is "fairly scratched" (although it plays fine) :)

The only discography I'm close to completing is King Diamond :lol: I assume The Eye will be the hardest to find.

Is that a rare one? I think I've come across it a few times in Stockholm - same w/ The Spider's Lullabye pic-disc. Something I should pick up for trading?

Don't know about The Spider's Lullabye pic-disc but just yesterday I paid for a copy of The Eye on vinyl didn't set me back too much at all. (On Ebay)

It doesn't show the picture of an item anymore to me, but as I recall, it was a pic-lp:

I can't say I collect the vinyl versions as that would be too expensive, especially in this case with the albums I don't like too much ,I suppose the eye wasn't as rare as I had thought, but It has always seemed to be the hardest to find of the regular full lengths.

no this was the regular black vinyl, which I searched for since it came out and never found a copy, this was the 1st time I ever saw this record. picture disc is pretty common comparatively.

got all 4 "nazi-Metal" albums from the 80's! Hurrah!?
The only one that comes to my mind right now is OUTBREAK's "Master Stroke". The other three?
HOLOCAUSTO - "Campo de exterminio", EXTERMINATOR - "Total Extermination" and HEAVY METAL ARMY - s/t. Ofcourse they we're not really "nazis", but they played around with the images in a clueless and tacky manner. File under "Incredibly Strange".
Arghhh the opening track on that HMA release kills!

For me I have for the most part all Sombre, EAL, Northern Heritage and Painiac releases. Missing a few odds and ends I'm sure, but I have all the major stuff. As far as completing everything a band has SABBAT is my only goal.
