Any CD collectors?

Hello BigBassTabs. It's been a long time.
I started buying CDs about a year ago instead of digital music. I wanted my music to be tangible and part of a collection, so I started buying up a bunch of CDs I knew. My collection has been expanding exponentially, and so are the genres. I know vinyl collecting is fairly common, but how many of you out there collect CDs?

P.S. THANK YOU SadWings for getting me into Judas Priest. They are freaking amazing!

My full collection thus far:
Among the Living (Anthrax)
Spreading the Disease (Anthrax)
Through the Never Soundtrack (Metallica)
Death Magnetic (Metallica)
Load (Metallica)
Metallica (Metallica)
…And Justice For All (Metallica)
Master of Puppets (Metallica)
Ride the Lightning (Metallica)
Kill ‘Em All (Metallica)
The Final Frontier (Iron Maiden)
Brave New World (Iron Maiden)
Seventh Son of a Seventh Son (Iron Maiden)
Somewhere In Time (Iron Maiden)
Powerslave (Iron Maiden)
Piece of Mind (Iron Maiden)
The Number of the Beast (Iron Maiden)
Iron Maiden (Iron Maiden)
Youthanasia (Megadeth)
Rust In Peace (Megadeth)
Peace Sells… But Who’s Buying? (Megadeth)
Redeemer of Souls (Judas Priest)
Painkiller (Judas Priest)
Screaming For Vengeance (Judas Priest)
Sad Wings of Destiny (Judas Priest)
The Great Twenty-Eight (Chuck Berry)
1984 (Van Halen)
Van Halen (Van Halen)
Turn Blue (The Black Keys)
El Camino (The Black Keys)
Brothers (The Black Keys)
Paranoid (Black Sabbath)
Hotel California (Eagles)
Back In Black (AC/DC)

The thing that will never make a comeback is a tape. Who the @$!# wants to play a tape?

Agreed. I remember when I was a kid my parents had lots of tapes. Nasty things.

I used to collect CDs – had about 1,500 of them at one point – until a particularly bad break-up back in the late 90s resulted in my psycho ex taking all my CDs (and a bunch of other stuff) and dumping them in the Ohio river. I knew I should have changed that damn lock. Anyway…

It was around that time that digital sharing came into being so I never bothered going back and re-buying all those CDs. But I had so much great stuff. Everything from Rollins to Harry Connick Jr to Mr. Bungle to Sly and the Family Stone and anything and everything in-between.

I suppose I should be grateful she forgot about my vinyl collection in the back closet. My CDs were bad enough, but mess with my vinyls and I'll kill a motherfucker.
I used to collect CD's started like 5 years ago after buying Nirvana's Nevermind. I was enthralled with the idea of having a physical copy of the media, and having the cool liner notes/artwork. After a year or 2 of strictly buying just full length CD's, I started buying singles and promos of the bands I really love. Those were cool because they had artwork I had never seen before and songs/versions I've never heard. I have a huge collection of imported singles and promos of bands like Alice in Chains, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage Against the Machine, Green Day, Offspring, Stone Temple Pilots, Sublime etc. That was an expensive hobby, as you could only get most of those singles on ebay and most sellers were overseas. About a year ago I gave that up and started collecting vinyl, way cooler IMO but more expensive lol. But yeah I still have all of my CD collection and from time to time Ill look through them.

Lon, I always knew you'd have a gritty, badass backstory.

That's not even the worst break-up I've had, man. I could tell you stories, but you probably wouldn't believe half of them. Hell, they happened to me and I don't believe half of them LOL
This is why I tread lightly around women

I still buy cds occasionally, as far as cassettes go i still have a ton. Back in the eighties u couldnt hear rap music till late at night. Usually after 10pm on most stations (chicago).grew up in a poor area so we would swap cassettes. The rarity that someone had the original was awesome. i would stay up and record. It was fun its just that tapes would rip and u would have to tape it back. Even worse the stupid DJ talking over the begining of a song. Good times

Honarable mentions

Nirvana nevermind
Living colour vivid

The police synchrnicity and outlandos d amour

N.w.a straight out of compton

De la soul three feet and rising

All on cassette

Ha
