I really like Disreali Gears and Goodbye by Cream and I cannot believe that I have not bought Wheels of Fire.
I've been meaning to get it for the last 15 years.

What are yours?

Mr Bungle's self-titled, which my sister had and I copied onto cassette. Later she borrowed my cassette and never returned it, but now YouTube serves my Bungle needs. Same goes for Metallica - Master of Puppets.

That may sound harsh but whenever I bought a great album my sister had too (Type-O's Slow Deep and Hard, several Primus albums) she said it was a waste of money.

Once I had Electric Ladyland from Hendrix, but sold it later. I've got none of Hendrix' original albums.

The James Gang Rides Again - The second album with Joe Walsh. I bought it in the 70's, but something
happened to it and I was never able to find it again on vinyl (or any format).

I can't belive I never owned a copy of the first Mountain album, Climbing.

I have a Brazilian cheap pressing (bought new back in the day) with the bizzarre masks cover. Last week I saw a Japanese LP with Nick Mason's illustration drawing and cool gatefold white cover, but could not afford it just for the cover, since I already have it, and I was buying other cool records...

I've sort of thought about this topic recently. While I consider my album and cd collection somewhat extensive, there are still many quality artists I haven't bought anything from. Here are some that quickly come to mind that I would like to invest in at some point:

Frank Zappa - Waka/Jawaka (only FZ I never picked up for CD-I some point I had a cassette)
Jeff Beck-other than Wired and Guitar Shop I have nothing.
Jimi Hendrix-other than Band of Gypsys I have nothing (I do have some of the dvd's)
Yes-nothing
Dream Theater-nothing
John McLaughlin-nothing (and hardly anything from the fusion jazz genre)
Miles Davis-nothing
Grateful Dead-I have no Dicks Picks
Moe.-nothing
Steely Dan-nothing
Buddy Guy-nothing

and I hardly have anything from any artist who's career was born after 1990. I'm still living in the past :smoke:

About 30 years ago somebody played me what I think was the first FEAR album. I thought it was great. I've never heard it since but think about it from time to time and for some reason I've never got around to buying it.

Cream is one of my "sacred cow" bands.

Wheels of Fire was the world's first platinum-selling double album. A rare occurrence where popularity and artistic achievent coincide.

The side with Crossraods & Spoonful is, in my not-so-humble opinion, one of the best album sides of live music ever released.

As for me, I have never purchased The Wall. I have it on several live releases, but not the studio album.

I haven´t bought any Beatles albums yet, even though i like their music. Where should i start?

@bracton You should get Close to the Edge as your first Yes album.

I still consider it my 'duty' to support the artists that I value, but as I get older I have started questioning this altruistic logic. I used to buy Siouxsie records religiously, but lately I've come to the conclusion that she is probably an unpleasant person, and my stance of putting her on a pedestal probably reinforces her 'inner cunt behaviour' in some small degree.
(Don't tell me I'm a bad person for using the 'unt' word-I have heard her use it before!)


Type O-great stuff, BTW!
Pete RIP

YCDTOSA 3 and 6. It's quite embarassing to admit such gaping holes in my Zappa collection, but I do have the Sampler on cassette 8)

Got it on LP and CD.
LP skips badly.
CD hopefully not, but one of the cd's became loose, haven't checked yet. Luckily made an uncompressed WAV rip of this great sounding pressing with EAC. Double-Jewelcases (the fat variety) are bullshit!

I used to have the Led Zeppelin "remasters" tape, a long time ago (I believe it was last century...) but I do not have one of their records... I often thought of buying some of them, the first four ones, in CD, but, you know, there is always a Frank Zappa record around the bend, so...

Really wanted to get "Ï Saw A Bozo Under The Sea" by Zoot Horn Rollo (Bill Harkleroad)
I downloaded all the sample tracks from his site years ago, but now it's disappeared
