Hi - research student from UK here.

I have been very interested in the 'Reasons why you collect' poll. It would appear that 'the music' is the clear winner here. So I'd like to ask the same question, but disregarding the music aspect.

Thanks.

Rob.

As an audiophile, I am interested in the best sound possible. That usually means the original pressing, or at least an early lacquer.

::: There's this Obsession-completist feeling that invades some of us... There's this album from my fav band, that I own in Lp, Cassette, CD and DCC Very Happy

    Besides the music it's artwork that I'm hooked on. See my site for more details! (click on the blue 'vinylrotation.org' badge underneath).

it is kind of a tossup for me between cover art and having different versions of a song that I like. For example I will buy an album just because it has a version of St. James Infirmary Blues that I haven't heard yet even if I don't particularly like the artist. I bought Elton John's Captain Fantastic years ago just because of the title and cover art

Glenn Gould has influenced and shaped my piano playing greatly. As an avid admirer of his playing I've become set on collecting all of his original release LPs. I have a few CD's that I bought a few years back, but then decided that I didn't want to settle for re-releases. Holding a first pressing of a record is like traveling back in history.
