I envy those who can afford to buy anything they want, I sure can't either. Those deluxe box sets are impossible for me (going for the 2 CD version of Sgt. Pepper, not the super deluxe box).
And should they ever release another album (not likely, but you never know):
Elio e le Storie Tese
Ian Anderson/Jethro Tull (although "The String Quartet" almost made me drop out of this)
Hendrix, if there's "previously unreleased" material on the album, as my strategy has always been to own every note he ever played, and even some albums where he doesn't play a note...
Neil Young,Tom Waits,Pj Harvey
Elton John and most any remix by Steven Wilson.
Andrew McMahon, Madonna, R.E.M. (from the archives, now.)
I've gotten into the habit of listening before I buy entire collections. I liked singles the best, so I tend to buy songs now. Before you didn't have that choice and I ended up with a lot of music I never listened to again.
I don't think I do anyone now.... You can't trust any of 'em.
Nick Cave, Van Morrison, PJ Harvey, Neil Young
Until recently, Bob Dylan. I still do, but now I think about it.
Peter Perrett (Only Ones). UK's best songwriter .
Dylan (right up until this last album of crooner covers crap, yeesh, enough already)
Gillian Welch/David Rawlings
- Led Zeppelin
- Queens of the Stone Age
- Father John Misty (although that might change after the most recent snoozer)
- Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings
- The Budos Band
I used to do it all the time in the 70's and 80's --Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder, Steely Dan, Michael Jackson, Prince and later, the Wipers, Minutemen, Husker Du, Replacements, Meat Puppets, and finally with Public Enemy, Run DMC, A Tribe Called Quest, Eric B & Rakim, but there hasn't been anyone in years--probably the last one was Stereolab. Now you can hear a release before you buy it, and I have saved a fortune by not buying sub par releases.
I stopped that practice many years ago.
There's really no reason for it anymore.
Rose Windows (but then they broke up)
The Grip Weeds
Purson (but then they broke up)
The Flaming Lips
All day one for me.
Rolling Stones (always)
Anything from the Buckingham-McVie-Nicks lineup of Fleetwood Mac, including most solo projects and reissues
Sad, but true.
Snarky Puppy (and any groups who feature members of Snarky Puppy)
Queens of the Stone Age
Deftones (or any of Chino's side projects)
Anything with Mike Patton
Anything that any of my jazz favorites release
When and If they ever come: Tool and Peter Gabriel
Voivod is it for me. Every other artist has disappointed me to the point where I gotta make sure I care enough before I plunk down the bread for their latest.
That said, Voivod disappointed me considerably with Negatron when it came out. This is mostly because vocalist Snake was missing. But somehow I bought the follow-up anyway. I might have given up then if not for the fact that Snake returned for the next album, so I enthusiastically grabbed that one and everything else that came after.
I never thought they'd survive the MCA Years, but those guys just keep on going.
