    Hi again.

    I was wondering about artists from which fellow Talkbassers own complete official recordings in LP or CD format (legally purchased from stores). Mine are Beatles, Kiss, AC/DC, The Police and all of the solo releases from Stuart Hamm and Victor Wooten. I'm just missing the last Boston release "Corporate America", but I haven't read good reviews about it. Special mention to Frank Zappa, from whom I have 47 titles (not the complete official discography, I know, but 47 titles, many of them in double CD format are a lot). Thank you in advance for your input. :)

    I've only got one box set. It's a steve reich complete works from 65-95, he's still making music, so I'm missing a couple of things but I do have most of his stuff post 1995.

    I'm seriously considering buying THE COMPLETE STEVIE WONDER, off of iTunes. 582 tracks for $190. I love stevie.

    I've got a complete collection of Bauhaus records and singles, including the rare fanclub release.

    I also have a complete collection of Sisters of Mercy records, Stiff Little Fingers 7" records, and more. I have a bunch of complete sets of various comic books...

    ...and a ton of non-complete collections including 1960's Avalon/Filmore posters, modern silk screen rock posters, and more than several hundred Grateful Dead shows on a variety of formats. I collect other stuff, toys, voodoo dolls, etc.

    I have a complete collection of pre-breakup Beatles albums on original Capitol and Apple records. I have a complete collection of Devo LP's and CD's. That's about it.

    That's why I used the word "recordings" instead of "discographies".

    Not a single group! I used to have all the Our Lady Peace recordings, but they just released a new album. My brother's a nut for NIN and has all of their stuff. Right now I'm at a point where I'm exploring as many different artists in jazz as I can -- the most I've got of anyone is Oscar Peterson. I've got Night Train (CD and Vol 2 on vinyl,) We Get Requests, the entire Blue Note box set, and a CD/DVD called "A Night in Vienna." All of it but the DVD/CD has Ray Brown on bass. If I *really* like an artist, I'll buy 1 or two more CDs before trying out someone else. As it stands, Charles Mingus comes in third (4 recordings,) and Charlie Parker in 3rd with 3 CDs (2 of which are compilations, though.)
     
  9. I have the complete collection of Yes minus Big Generator and 90125 because I didn't want to waste 12 bucks on those albums (theyre good but I am poor!) I also own the Genesis disco. until they crapped out at Abacab.
     
  10. I have complete:

    Rush (excluding Greatest hits comps)
    Foo Fighters
    Radiohead
    Nirvana

    most Yes, excluding the recent monthly greatest hits / live comps they've been releasing

    ;)
     
  11. The Beatles (I think i have every official LP release - either US or UK, not both)
    R.E.M (except the last two - just nothing there for me anymore :oops: )
    SRV
    The Police
    Men At Work

    :D
     
  12. I have the complete Deep Purple Mk. 1 recordings,
    and i also have the complete Citizen King collection, unfortunatly they've seen better days :( i miss them!

    Its funny that for the most part I prefer listening to hard rock/metal stuff yet the only complete collection I have is Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Go figure.
     
  14. I have the complete Slayer discography, except for the new box set.
    I have Les Claypool's complete discography, excluding a few guest appearances he did. Everything he recorded as a band leader, I have it.
    I have every Pantera album.
