Django Reinhardt by a long shot, that I know for a fact..... followed distantly by Dylan, Rolling Stones, Santana, Hendrix, just from a quick glance, but probably accurate.
Rod Stewart....I don`t particularly like Rod Stewart (apart from the early stuff), but you can pick them up for pennies at the local sale, and I`ll also go with Barbara Streisand for the same reason.
Have so far managed to resist buying Cliff Richard,. even I would not sink that low.....and anyway I would have to bring them home in a plain brown wrapper.
Well, ahem, I do have all the Sex Pistols albums.
Apart from soundtracks and compilations, of course.....
Two way tie w/ a close third :
The Beatles / Solo
Different pressings. Six different of the great "Nobody's Fools" LP for example. Used to buy as many as I could as a teenager. But these days I mostly pick up 7" I don't have (got 300+) as I in my early 20's somehow realized that Slade wasn't the pinnacle of the musical evolution. Still love them to bits though. Not much I can do about that... I guess everyone can relate to this.
If you include bootlegs, either Zappa or the Dead.
It's still Zappa or the Dead if you only include official releases, but then Dylan, Miles, Mingus and some others would be in the running, too. I don't have an exact count for anyone. But I collect complete discographies of my favorite artists, and for Zappa and the Dead I also have hundreds of bootlegs.
Pet Shop Boys
Nobody's Fools is the latest Slade LP I have. I have them all up to that and then they get very hard to find. Slade were great. Not all music has to be high art! Do you have the original Ambrose Slade album?
24 Albums (but all on CD)
Since LP means "long player" it appears that most CDs are more LP than trad LPs.
Yes, got a OK copy of the Fontana release and US Ballzy and a PROMO Ballzy and the withdrawn Contour 75 rerelease. And a 80's boot but not the recent Blue Morgan Town rerelease. Got to draw the line somewhere.
Regarding their output after "Nobody's Fools", Scandinavian pressed LP:s of "Whatever Happened to Slade" are quite cheap over here. "Return to Base" are hard to find, either the UK or the Belgium pressings. "WHTS" are essential stuff though. Even if the production is a bit muddy. Keep On Rockin' mate!
LP means Vinyl, doesn't It?
For Vinyl it will be Lluís Llach (a catalán songwriter), around 25 LPs counting multiple editions of some albums.
In CD I should have over 60 discs by Billie Holliday
The Beatles by far
Beatles which is not saying much. There are only a few artist for which I have all their releases.
Beatles - more or less everything that was released in the US through the 70's and then in the 90's or so I picked up CDs of the albums UK versions). (even not counting those CDs it is still the Beatles)
Even The Who, my fav, I only have maybe 12 LPs and Cds.
1. Miles Davis
2. The Fall
Frank Sinatra all of Capitol and most Reprise> and lots of MONO/Stereo versions
