    What band do you have the most stuff of?

    We all have tons of cd's.

    What bands do you collect the most?

    For me, it's:

    Genesis
    Stranglers
    Ultravox
    Marillion
    Deep Purple
    Kansas
    Tull
    The Fixx
    Yes


    I rarely buy "different doubles" but did with Yes's The Ladder as they each had different bonus cd's.

    FA,

    You like Dream Theatre a lot, eh?

    Have you ever seen them live?

    Alas, I have not, but the dvd in stunning.

    I get tired just watching them hammer away non stop.

    Pretty darn good band.

    Dave

    Been following Dream Theatre for a long time now. I saw them back in 91 or 92 I think, in Dallas. Awesome show. Have not seen them since. They are truly a great band. I can listen to them for hours.

    Did not know they had DVD out. I will make that next on my list.

    I also have a lot of Big Head Todd stuff. Every Album they have put out has been great. A really good bluesie rock band with a taste of funk. They are really good live as well. I see them at least once a year between Houston, Austin and Dallas.

    From memory I think REM would be the winner in my rack, which is wierd because I hardly ever play them anymore.

    I also have a lot of Big Head Todd, Kings X, all of Crowded House (and the Finn Bros)and Freedy Johnston. These artists always make me curious about their next release.

    For me it'd be the Allman Brothers, Grateful Dead, Jimmy Buffett, Jimi Hendrix, Widespread Panic, Dave Matthews, and Blues Traveller.

    Thinking about this question made me realize that there really aren't any "bands" in my list that come readily to mind, being away from the rack to look. Rough memory sez-

    Van Morrison, 29 or 30
    Joan Armatrading, everything but Greatest Hits packages
    Guy Clark, everything (10 or so)
    John Hiatt, 8 or 9

    welcome back Demetrio!

    I was wondering when you were going to make the 'jump'..


    I'm not a collector of any one band really..

    of Husker Du, the Minutemen, and a few others, I have all of their 'official' releases.. but I don't really deal with extra stuff too much, I have a couple boots by various bands, but nothing to write home about. Probably the one artist represented most in my collection is Bill Laswell, I think by last count it was about 15 cds.. a very small fraction of his total output..

    Okay, I was responding to Dave and I hit a key on my keyboard accidentally and my post disappeared. I don't know what I hit, but if an incomplete post by me shows up somewhere, you'll know why.

    Lets try this again....

    Considering that I only discovered Dream Theater as a result of this board which I have only been hanging around for a year (Happy Anniversary to me!), I've put together a pretty good collection. I still have a few holes to fill, but it is definately the most purchased band for me this year.

    I had the pleasure of seeing Dream Theater this past summer. They played a show with Queensryche and Fates Warning. They were amazing. I am soooooo hoping that they tour to promote the new CD and find their way back here. I will definately be there if they do.

    BarryL lent me the DVD. In fact, I haven't yet returned it. I hope that he isn't looking for it. It was great. I'll have to get my own copy (gift hint here Barry). I also noticed how long they could play without taking a breather. My fingers hurt after about 45 minutes on my guitar! I liked the little video inserts. I thought that they did a good job of helping to tell the story.

    Wall of Voodoo would be the king of my pile of discs not really sure how many total, probably 40-50. Not bad for a band that had 7 proper albums released. The rest is made up from bootlegs and EPs.

    Not too many other bands where I have all official regular releases plus some more but there are a few

    Adam and the Ants
    Soft Cell
    Stan Ridgway
    Ramones -The Ramones are really starting to pile up due to the remasters and then replacing some vinyl and cassettes with CDs.

    Fun question.

    U2 (all of 'em)
    Rolling Stones (most of the good ones)
    Fleetwood Mac (they're my wife's)

    There are a bunch of artists that I own 4 of, including (but not limited to):
    Bowie
    Cowboy Junkies
    Wilco
    The Who

    Hello Demetrio,

    I received your package the other day. Thank you very much. KW III isn't bad actually. In fact, it rawks. I'm very glad to have finally completed the "trilogy" so to speak.

    The Jadis is growing on me.

    Anyway, nice to see you here.

    Hey, Darren, glad to know you enjoyed the Kingston Wall cd, I loved the one you sent me too ("Mushroons" has to be one of their best songs, it's just brilliant).

    Hope you come to enjoy that Jadis cd too.

    On a side note, I received two great cd's last week: SVANN "Granica czerni i bieli" and ANAMOR "Imaginacje". Both the bands are from Poland, and both have a female vocalist. The first reminds Abraxas a lot, the other is more in the vein of Collage, Quidam and You & I.

    Another excellent cd I'm listening to at the moment is NICE BEAVER "On Dry Land". Finally I got the new SPOCK'S BEARD, "Feel Euphoria". Despite some negative reviews I have read, I liked this one. By the way, I have read some very positive comments about the new NEAL MORSE solo work, "Testimony". Anybody out there liked this one?

    Best prog wishes,

    Demetrio.

    Personally, I like my beavers wet. Sorry Demetrio, very 'dry' sexual humor.

    You never cease to amaze me. You are certainly a well informed progger. If you don't mind, I would love a comp of your recent new findings.

    Let me know. Thanks.
