I bought all of their albums


What artist have you bought all of their studio albums? You can include artist you bought all albums “since” or “until” some significant change. I have examples for what I mean.

For me:
The Cars – all seven albums
Savage Garden – both albums

The Since/until artists:
Steely Dan – the seven albums they had until they broke up in the early 80's.
Jim Croce – the three albums since he became famous. Apparently, he had a couple of albums in the 60s that didn’t chart.
Boston – the three albums before Brad Delp left. To me they were a different group after that.

I can't list every artist I have every bit of recorded output from; that would be hundreds of artists. They include:

Slayer
Beastie Boys
Kool Keith
Infant Annihilator
Johnny Dowd
Ohio Players
AC/DC
Radio Birdman
Minutemen

Bands that I have partials because reasons include:

Van Halen (up to the Van Hagar years)
Steely Dan (thru Aja, because that's all they did that matters and it's all perfect)
Frank Zappa (there's just a shitload of stuff FFS)
The Residents (there's just a shitload of stuff FFS)

Back in the mid-80s I was listening to country music and ONLY country music. I snagged every CD I could, starting with the initial albums, of Clint Black, Garth Brooks, and Travis Tritt. There was no way I could get the back catalog of Hank Williams, Jr., but for about 10 years I bought everything he released.

Wilco - I had all of their albums until the release of their live "Kicking Television" album, which I still do not own, but I have everything else, including the two Mermaid Avenue albums with Billy Bragg.

Rush - I had all of their albums through Signals, started losing interest when Grace Under Pressure came out, and didn't buy another Rush album for 20 years. I'm slowly filling in the gaps now.

Led Zeppelin - I had all their albums at one time but some are missing now.

Genesis - I had everything up to and including the yellow "Genesis" album (including "Trespass" and "From Genesis to Revelation").

Old 97s - everything (so far)

Led Zeppelin
Pink Floyd
Yes
Jimi Hendrix

When I was buying a lot of CDs the Beatles were always on the air, just flip the station and someone was playing a Beatles song, so I never came close to completing my Beatles.

I might be missing any Yes albums from post 2000, but that is fine.

For higher output bands:
Pink Floyd
Camper Van Beethoven
Primus
Love and Rockets
Garbage
Concrete Blonde

I am somewhat embarrassed to say that I had the complete Doobie Brothers up until One Step Closer. I am more embarrassed to say that despite selling off almost all my LPs, I still do!

Led Zepellin

There are a lot of bands I bought all albums up to a certain point:
Metallica - Nothing after the black album
Black Sabbath - First six (I did get Dio's Heaven and Hell)
Chris Isaak - up to Speak of the Devil
Dwight Yoakam - up to dwightyoakamacoustic.net - stupid name for an album but I love it

Many more.

All:

Electric Light Orchestra

Most:

Queen -- everything up through "A Kind of Magic." At the time, i wasn't a fan of what I heard from their final few albums, and never bought them.

I collected Devo in the 1980s and into the 90s. I had the catalog of course, and all the rare singles and oddities. Foreign picture sleeves, some boots, oddball tapes, autographs, and of course an authentic Devo radiation suit.

The Flower Kings
IQ

I've also got every live album, EP, b-sides collection, some bootlegs, and so on. In come cases, I've kept albums even if they suck (Yes's Open Your Eyes, for instance), just to be able to say I've got all of their output.

I own everything by Zappa up through 1993 (The Yellow Shark). It's somewhere around 70 albums! I also have a couple of his posthumous albums, but gave up trying to keep up with these releases a long time ago.

Violent Femmes, since they've had so few, and I appreciate their style. I'm generally not an album buyer. Thinking back, I may have the entire catalogue of a couple of 80's alternative bands...

I own multiple copies of all of Gustav Mahler’s symphonies, plus the song cycles.

The Velvet Underground - not just the four studio albums, but all the posthumous albums, box sets, important bootlegs, and seventy or so solo records released until about 2005.
Pink Floyd - I have all the studio and live albums (but not the super deluxe editions) up until that instrumental record that came out a few years ago.
The Byrds
The Beatles and John Lennon (not every outtake album, but the basic catalogues)
Captain Beefheart - he's another one with a messy discography, but I have all the records released during the time he was working as a musician.
Lana Del Rey (the only current artist I'm obsessively collecting)

Led Zeppelin - I bought the box sets, which had almost all the songs they issued, then I ripped them to my PC and rearranged the tracks into their original album order, each album in its own folder.

Jim Croce
Bread
CCR
Emmylou Harris, six albums starting with Pieces of the Sky through Roses in the Snow. I've bought a couple more. White Shoes is a great album from 1983. I haven't tried buying everything she's released.

Bonnie Raitt late 80's / early 90's hit albums, Nick of Time, Luck of the Draw, Longing in Their Hearts. Her older stuff from the 70's is a different style.

Got ‘em all:
  • La’s (one album)
  • David & David (one)
  • Sundays (three)
  • Smiths (four)
  • Keane (four *)

Collected all up to a point, then stopped dead:
  • Radiohead (through Amnesiac)
  • REM (through Monster)
  • Bruce Springsteen (through Lucky Town/Human Touch)

(*) Looks like Keane released a new CD a few days ago after a seven-year break. I guess I'll have to go pick that one up.

I have three, all of which I follow on social media so that I can be notified when a new album comes out and mark my calendar for when albums are released (and sometimes to pre-order):

1. Hanson
2. Andrew McMahon in all his different incarnations (Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, Jack's Mannequin, Something Corporate)
3. Old Dominion

If you buy no other Springsteen album, I wholeheartedly recommend you get The Rising (2002), his first album in like 18 years with the full E Street Band. It was written partly in response to 9/11. It's a mixture of introspective songs, light optimistic tunes, and flat-out rock 'n' roll party songs. There's not a bad song on the album.

Roxy Music, up to the break-up after Siren, including Viva! (the live album) and Manifesto (the first album back together, which persuaded me to stop).

David Bowie, up to Heroes (except Pin-ups, the album of covers)

John Cale, up to Honi Soit. Hell's teeth, I even bought Church of Anthrax. I kinda got less obsessive as I got older.

Rory Gallagher. There wasn't a Rory Gallagher recording that I found that I didn't buy. Eventually, I went through the catalog one by one and made sure I didn't miss any. Not a one of them was a disappointment, either!

Coheed and Cambria

I know they're not a household name - but they are my favorite band. They've released 9 studio albums and I've got them all. Also have some live material and have have lost track of the number of times I've seen them in concert.

I've got everything Joy Division (and the stuff they did as Warsaw) ever recorded, in the format it was first released. Admittedly it's not a huge catalogue, and one or two of the rarer items are, err, not entirely 100% in their provenance.

I'm pretty sure I've got the entire Cocteau Twins catalogue in original vinyl though. Not in mint condition - those used to get played a lot, and the covers made handy and pleasing surfaces to skin up on.

If you were to recommend one REM album after Monster, which one would it be? I lost interest after Monster, but now fear I missed out on something worthy while I wasn't paying attention.
