    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).
  3. Joe Jackson
    Elvis Costello
    Emmylou Harris
    King Crimson
    Gillian Welch
    Shelby Lynne

    And should they ever release another album (not likely, but you never know):
    Billy Joel

    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... :)

    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 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.

    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.
