Default Post your Foo Fighters Vinyl Collection

Basic idea for those who are too lazy to read long threads -
- List your foo vinyl collection, with pictures if you want.
- Maybe tell us about one or two of your favourite or most precious/valuable non-foo vinyls.
- Say what equipment you play them on.

I swear I'm not trying to rob you.


Ok.....I know there was a my foo collection thread but it never seemed to take off.
Anyway I'm more interested in what Foo vinyls everyone's got.


List 'em all off, maybe a nice little description and post a picture of your collection if you want.


Actually it would be interesting to see what kind of set up everyone's got to play them on too.




I'm still working on building mine. Got most of these last year before my money all ran out so I don't have many yet:

Albums:
- The Colour and The Shape - UK Pressing, Really nice condition, near mint
- There is Nothing Left to Lose - UK pressing, Very good condition, again near mint, Tattoo still there
- 2x Wasting Light - US pressing, 45 RPM, One will stay sealed, the other will be played to death!
- In Your Honor - EU pressing, 33RPM, 4 vinyl box set. Mint.

- 2x Medium Rare - Again one to keep sealed and one for listening.
- One by One - 10" on the way, still sealed.
- Foo Fighters - UK first pressing, poor condition

I also got one of those blue TCATS fakes a good while ago just so I could stick it on my wall

Singles:
- Exhausted (Promo) - 12", Mint condition
- This Is A Call - 12" luminous vinyl single
- I'll Stick Around - 7" Single, Red Vinyl
- For All The Cows - 7" Single, Blue Vinyl
- Big Me - 7" Single, White Vinyl
- Everlong - UK 7" Single, Blue Vinyl
- My Hero - UK 7" Single, Red Vinyl

-Rope - 12" single soon....hopefully

That's it so far, as soon as I start working again over the summer I'll build it up more.

Some Non-Foo Fighters Favourites:
A mint condition original 1969 pressing of Abbey Road by the Beatles
Smashing Pumpkins - Siamese Dream First Pressing, NM (Butch Vig knows how to produce a record!)
Led Zeppelin - IV - NM 1971 pressing
Fleetwood Mac - Rumours, original pressing, excellent condition, autographed by the band, picked it up for €21!!!!

Oh yeah...My turntable is a cheapo Steepletone ST918 that cost less than most of the vinyls I've got. About €35-€40. It suits what I need it for at the moment but I'll hopefully improve it soon. Don't want it doing damage.

Ok I'll play...

1 Mint (legit) copy of TCATS - scored it for a good price from an ebay pawn shop that didn't know what they had and had it listed as a cd, so only a few people bid on it.

1 Mint (US) copy of There Is Nothing Left To Lose - Was sealed with the Foo Fighters tattoo still intact inside. Opened it to play it. Sad to find out that its a bit on the muddy sounding side.

2 In Your Honor (US) box sets, both Mint. One sealed but with damage to the box, one opened that I play.

1 Mint - Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace (US)

2 Wasting Light, one came with the limited Deluxe edition, one came with the Vinyl special edition.

1 Medium Rare , provided the place I ordered it from doesn't screw me.

Current table is a Pro-Ject Debut III with an Ortofron Red cartridge.

As I'm "working" from home today, seems a perfect time to go through what I have:

Albums:

Self Titled - Mint
TCATS - Near mint. So happy to have finally got this
TINLTL - Mint. Still has the FF transfer too
One By One - Near mint
In Your Honour - Mint. UK set with The Sign
ESP&G - Mint
Greatest Hits - Mint
Wasting Light - Mint. EU pressing which I totally forgot I'd pre-ordered.
Wasting Light - Sealed. US pressing from the Deluxe pre-order
Medium Rare - Mint

Singles:

This Is A Call - 12" luminous vinyl
I'll Stick Around - 12"
I'll Stick Around - 7" red vinyl
Big Me - 7" white vinyl
For All The Cows - 7" blue vinyl
DOA - 7" yellow vinyl
The Pretender - 7" clear vinyl
Long Road To Ruin - 7"

Was sure I had more singles than that, but am missing loads from other bands, so must be in one of the boxes I haven't unpacked from when we moved

So FooZealand is the one hoarding all the vinyl...

Mind if I ask your reasoning behind the 3 and 4 copies of identical pressings? I get I having one to listen to and one to keep sealed, but your collection is bordering on obsessive!

Don't mind at all - very common and very reasonable question to be asking. First you need to bare in mind I have been collecting since 1995, so a lot of the duplicates came when buying whole collections, or just when buying one item i needed when it was with others I didn't really need but could justify picking up because the price was good.

I've never gone out of my way to get 3 copies of almost anything - with the exception of the TCATS vinyl, and then purely based on price - if it's too good to turn down well you just can't. The other exception recently would be the EU WL LP - AM Germany have a set postage price, so I bought several copies, I will probably sell one or two locally to make the copies I keep a bit cheaper. And WL, and that was just dumb luck, an Ebay purchase and then the local RSD store got a copy they had told me might not arrive.

Also what you don't see there is the total number of copies of some of these that I have had at one time. I had a box from a UK record store closure in 2004 that had 50 something copies of Foo 7" singles in it. Ive traded most of them away. I guess I still sit on a spare in case I find a need to have one to offer to swap for something, or maybe damage one etc because I do play the play copies pretty regularly.

OK so its no real excuse - I am just obsessive lol - tell me Im wrong - go on I dare you

Holy shit is right!

Something tells me you didn't just type off those names now...It's a little too organised.
Do you keep your vinyl collection in a database or something?

I dream of the day I have a collection worthy of keeping organised instead of in a box in the corner.

I'm having to do my CD collection, with photos, for insurance purposes. I keep putting it off, but there have been two burglaries in my area of late so will probably start doing it this weekend!

Don't know why they are both in Canada but here you go :

This one looks in better condition - worth the extra I'd say :

I wouldn't have a hope in hell of keeping track of stuff if I didn't have a big spreadsheet with everything in it. All I did there was delete everything that wasn't vinyl.

Trust me even if you only have ten items - start straight away. It is much easier to keep current than make yourself start one later when you accidentally buy something you thought you needed but found you had already bought, and yes I did that more than once before deciding it had to be done lol.

I've not really got much Foo stuff on Vinyl.
Singles:
Times Like These
Have It All
Low
DOA

I know I need more stuff, but I've not really seen much Foo Fighters vinyl in my area. I know at some point though I'm getting Wasting Light on Vinyl.

You guys are insane (I'm just jealous, wish I had the money to get all this stuff!)
