I could not afford the Beatles Mono vinyl box when it first came out, so I went the individual copies purchase route.
I got half way there and then find that the remaining albums were not available any more. I have a history of incomplete collections.
I sprung for the big Mono vinyl set this week, because I can finally afford to. Will sell off the individual copies.
From Discogs, amazon marketplace, etc.:
Depeche Mode/Remixes 81-04 (3CD)
Various/Opal Assembly 1(Warner promo-only CD compilation for Brian Eno's Opal Records)
The Upsetters/Super Ape and Return of Super Ape (Universal 2CD edition with both Super Ape albums plus bonus tracks)
Daby Toure/Stereo Spirit
First music purchase of the year for me will be this, on vinyl:

Over in this thread
The BILL EVANS thread
someone posted a video of a cut from this album don't believe I have ever heard it before
so it is now ordered for my first buy of 2018
Prurient - Rainbow Mirror (Profound Lore)
Four discs and 200 minutes of dark ambient noise. Can't wait to dig in.
Thinking about the wilco Being There box on LP but it's kinda expensive.
Yesterday I went to Urban Outfitters to pick up their exclusive version of Halsey’s Hopeless Fountain Kingdom with the unique cover art. While I was there I also grabbed the recent reissue of Soundgarden’s Superunknown and The Best of Sade.
3 CDs by the dancey 80s freestyle electropop trio Exposé:
What You Don't Know
Dance Mixes (2005 compilation of original 12" mixes and alternates)
Its an amazing set. You will not be disappointed. Dead quiet on my system, not a pop anywhere. I can hear subtle nuances I've never heard before in any format. The included book is quite good as well.
The brand new album, Backbone, by Emily Hurd. Emily Hurd - MUSIC
I've been TRYING to purchase the Rolling Stones '67 Sessions but nobody can tell me how to do so.

Just bought the vinyl of an old (relatively speaking, in this case 2004) favorite, Moonbabies The Orange Billboard. Fun album, and will be fun to finally have on vinyl too, this one the original (and only) press on the German Strange Fruit label, and purchased from a German store on discogs, never seen one around here. Shipping costs more than the $5 mint vinyl, a lot of my favorites aren't in very high demand
