albums you've bought more than once

Recommended Posts

You know those albums that you love so much that you either have multiple copies or bought again cause you lost one or it got broken.

I was thinkin how in my apt i have 4 copies of Illmatic. 2 cds, a cassette and vinyl.

All those great reissues Get On Down have been putting out also doesn't help.

I also have Roc Marciano Marcberg on vinyl, cd and since Fat Beats is putting out a cassette, I swiftly copped that.

Any albums that y'all love so much that you keep on buying it over and over?

Do you have the actual purple tape or just OB4CL on tape? I was able to get the limited edition purple box joint that getondown.com did a couple months back. That shit is dope.

Some more that I remembered.

Pharcyde - Bizarride II The Pharcyde - tape, CD & vinyl

Biggie - Ready II Die - tape, CD & vinyl

NWA - Ni@@az4life - tape (twice), CD & vinyl

Like I said I could do this all day. Usually what happened was I originally got it on tape and then would get it on CD later. Then when I really got into DJing I would cop it on vinyl. Did that with a lot of my collection. (too much sh!t)

Yeah i got the reissue purple tape, but i still hold on to the hope i'll find an OG copy at some random thrift store

Getondown has really been killin it with the reissues. Wondering what they'll do for the Ironman reissue.

Rather than starting a new thread, I thought I'd use this one to check what may have been asked before elsewhere here...

How much would you be willing to spend on one of your all-time favourite albums (on CD)? Especially if it's a signed, short run re-release of an out of print classic? $50? $75? $100?
