Changes I would make to the above (in general and in comparison) in my opinion would be:

Big Me (white) - Can be harder to find - can be slightly expensive
Everlong (blue) - Medium hard to find - always very expensive
My Hero (red) - Medium hard to find - medium to expensive
Walking After You - Not super easy to find - usually above medium in cost
Learn to Fly - Hard to find - usually expensive
All My Life (US) - Can be harder to find - medium cost when you find one
The Pretender (clear) - Slightly harder to find - starting to get a little more expensive


If you were wanting a list of all the 7" singles you are missing these:

This Is A Call - UK One Sided Promo - becoming rather rare - fairly expensive
This Is A Call - UK Jukebox - fairly rare - medium pricing when available
Monkey Wrench - US Jukebox - reasonably easy to find
My Hero - US Jukebox - reasonably easy to find
Walking After You - US Jukebox - reasonably easy to find
Westlife / Foo Fighters My Love / Next Year - Italian Jukebox - Rare & expensive
The One - UK - Impossible to find - don't try (ONE was made and signed by Dave for a UK competition. It is owned by a very lucky board member)
All My Life EU - NOT numbered - Getting quite rare & expensive
Best Of You US Promo - Getting harder to find - becoming slightly expensive
The Pretender US Promo - Getting harder to find - becoming slightly expensive


Additionally the following three test pressings are known to exist - there must be more but none have ever surfaced or been known to be publically owned.

The One - UK Test Pressing (Maybe 8-10 copies - of The "One" limited 7" above)
All My Life US Test Pressing (8 copies - I own one)
Long Road To Ruin UK/EU Test Pressing (unknown number of copies - Alban on Discogs owns one)
Thank you FooZealand for the kind words!
Your comments are very helpful, I really apprecitate it!
I left the promos as firstly I want to get the commercial 7" singles and still don't know if I want to go deeper. I've been really into NIN, Nirvana and Manson for a decade, so I don't have too much money to spend on another band, but the Foo 7" vinyls are beautiful.
As I said before, I'm always open for trade as well, so if you have any spare FF vinyl, let me know.

You're very welcome. It doesn't matter what you end up deciding on as far as how far you go with a collection. The way I see it is I just like to let people know all of what is out there, then you get to gauge where you want to go against that. I spent a long time over the years thinking I had that "full" list sorted, only to get surprised over and over again with what was still missing. So it just helps take that guess work out of it for other people

I have a lot of vinyl, but really dont have trades. Mainly there isnt much left Im missing to trade so it makes it difficult. But I do try and help put people onto good listings when I see them. I post quite a few from time to time in this thread and the main collectors thread.

Anyone in the UK still looking for the Medium Rare LP this is about as cheap as you'll get - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ws/eBayISA...E:B:SS:GB:1123

I bought a copy from the same seller a couple of months ago, came new and sealed.

I don't have much in terms of vinyl, but they're still only growing in popularity in the US. I've got Wasting Light from the $75 set and I've got Medium Rare. I wanted the CD version but couldn't justify spending $50 for it. Still don't have ESPG or Skin and Bones though, so it doesn't matter.

Not including the new reprints and differenciating between international releases, I only need a few more to complete my initial collection before I take the next step. I need...

Westlife/Foo Fighters - My Love/Next Year
Everlong
and I think that's it...

I want Godzilla and Mission Impossible soundtrack, but they're not a must at this point, then I want all of the new reissues.

I already have a head a start on international releases as I have the EU and US releases of IYH and S/T, and have only UK for TC&TS. For now, I'm going for Everlong and FF/Westlife

You probably didn't want to either Jukebox only Italian release - goes for seeeerious money if people see it ... it is the only official commercial piece of vinyl I don't own - all variations of all albums included.

I know this isn't the right thread, but it's the right group of people..can anyone tell me if there's a Wheels/Word Forward 45 out there? I don't want to get the greatest hits just for those two songs.

No. There is a Wheels/Word Forward CD single though.

I'm missing: One by one 2 10" LP, might get it sooner than later!
I love your thinking - I haven't regretted a single foo vinyl purchase. I play my records over the cds all the time now. With your new gear they will just sound so much more full - and that UK Nothing is definitely the one to have. I hunted so long to get one and ended up getting a sealed copy, which is fantastic, only I just cant play it lol. The US orig version just isn't the same. They messed up the pressing master. I was borrowing a UK copy now and then now I don't have to thanks to the reissues. You'll definitely enjoy that one

Thank you Foo Zealand for fueling my purchasing frenzy....

You're right, my new set up is incredible compared to what i had before... My vinyls sonds richer than ever. It's so much enjoyable that i might unseal my sealed copy of their first album and give ita spin.

Is their any fake copies of Medium Rare? I've bought mine from ebay, unsealed and the colors seems to be faded. I'm not certain it is legit...

Given what you bought as far as equipment goes you couldn't really go wrong It will last for years and most importantly your records will too!

There are no known fake copies of Medium Rare. So many were actually pressed nobody is likely to ever bother. Bare in mind it has a retro style design, I'm sure it is fine.

I can't directly quote anything when saying this but from what I have read Dave being quoted as saying and heard in interviews over the years, he really cares about records. They have always released vinyl, even in times where bigger bands at the same time were not because it wasn't considered commercially worth doing. I'm pretty sure they would even have had all the reissues in mind when they released Wasting Light and Medium Rare, but they definitely knew how rare their earlier vinyl releases had become. I'm sure that played a part in pressing the MR release in much higher numbers than the other RSD vinyl; they didn't want bootlegs to be an issue.

Good to ear. I need to take time to check the runout grooves from what is on discogs

Thank you FooZealand

EDIT: Damn you FooZealand! I just had to buy the OBO you pointed out on ebay!
