the biggest part of your music collection?

Music and or concert DVD's included as well.

I had a fire some years back that destroyed my entire album collection so over the years I've been trying to piece it back together as of now my top three are.

ZZ Top 14 cds

Queen 13 cds 2 dvds

Bruce Springsteen 9 cds 3 dvds

Do box sets/double CD sets count as just one CD or can I count the multiple CD's in a collection?

I think I have more Tesla then any other band, possibly followed by Van Halen. Though I only get in the mood for VH's old stuff, and then that only seems to be in the summer when driving around with the windows down.

This will be a big surprise to longtime readers:

Yes. That includes complete Yes discography, plus Steve Howe, Rick Wakeman, Bill Bruford, Chris Squire and Jon Anderson solo stuff. I'm at work and can't count, but it's well over 25 CDs. Lots of stuff on vinyl too, such as bootlegs. Some DVDs as well.

Close second is Genesis. Complete Genesis discography with Steve Hackett, Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford solo stuff. CD, vinyl, boot vinyl, DVD.

Alrighty then, including 2 CD's of rare tracks I've burned off the internet.... you take part of the Genesis "family"... Genesis/Phil Collins/Peter Gabriel/Mike & the Mechanics, I have 32 CD's and 8 DVD's, 2 other concerts on VHS, and 3 more live albums on cassette. I think that's it.

Nope, don't have really much of anything in the way of bootlegs like that. I'm a weakling compared to most Genesis fanatics when it comes to bootleg stuff like that. I tell people all the stuff I have and they think I'm weird, and they have no idea.... there are hundreds of things out there I don't have. What I really want is remixes and soundtrack stuff.

It used to be on Cinemax and USA's Night Flight in the 80s. I have a part of it recorded -- on Beta. :banghead:

I don't have a huge collection, and multiple-disk purchases are hampered by the fact that I'll often just grab a "Greatest Hits" album and buy little else from that artist. (Those things are a bad idea for musicians, I think.)

I've got about a dozen or more Springsteen CDs, primarily because I bought a whole bunch of them for my wife for Christmas a few years back. She's a long-time fan.

Other than that, the only groups for which I have three or more CDs are The Indigo Girls, Kim Richey, Simon & Garfunkel, and The Dixie Chicks. Maybe I'm missing someone.

I've got a couple of Meat Loaf albums, and I keep looking for Midnight at the Lost and Found, which is great. I haven't found it yet, so I might just have to Amazon.com it.

I've got a considerably large CD collection that includes Alternative, blues, jazz, bluegrass, and jambands....

I wonder why they are so slow to get on the DVD train? They put on an excellent live show. I'd think it would translate well to video. Have you seen Billy's guitar made from some of the Cyprus wood taken from the cabin that Muddy Waters was born in? Very, very cool. It's on display in Clarksdale Mississippi at the blues museaum.

I also have big sets of Dead Can Dance, Frontline Assembly, Front 242, Wire, Sweethearts of the Rodeo, New Order/Joy Division, REM and Johnny Cash.
