Hendrix "Band of gypsies"
Jefferson Airplane "Surrealistic Pillow"
Alan Stivell "Renaissance of the celtic harp"
VDGG "The least we can do is wave to each other" "Still Life" "World Record"
The Enid "In the region of"

Yours?

Not an album but I did buy all format releases of Weezers "Hash Pipe" single as ,as far as I remember, they all had different b-sides and I was a huge Weezer fan at the time.

Where is the minidisc love? A far better format than CD.

I used to have Stalin's speeches on 78 rpm if that's any help.

Yes, not bad, although I'd have had After Bathing and Ladyland in preference, as well as a tool that deleted one side of the Love. The Enid, tho, eh? Lol City, AZ. I saw them once at the Marquee; I recall someone in the queue outside asked what they sounded like and someone else said like a cross between Elgar and Floyd, which was a fair enough assessment. And then again at Henge, the last real Henge as it happened, where they were superb.

Hawkwind "doremi"
And
The Stone Roses
Although I'm sure the tapes chewed and died before the MP3 came along...

Probably the album in the most multiple formats is 1981's Faith by The Cure.

I have six copies on vinyl, Australian (gatefold), Norwegian (gatefold), Spanish, two first press UK issues, and a more recent Record Store Day reissue (comes with download code).

Also on CD Deluxe edition and several original cassette issues (comes with an additional piece of music not available on the other formats)

There are still plenty of other vinyl pressings still to find including NZ, Japanese, Irish (mega rare) and a test pressing (rarer still).

That's a very good list, especially the first four.

Hot Rats: Frank Zappa, I think is the only one I've had on all formats.

Friends and associates know not to mention minidiscs in my presence as I will wax lyrical about what an underrated format they are for as long as anyone will listen (so not long).

I think the only one that I've owned in every format is Roni Size and Reprazent - New Forms. Definitely not embarrassed about that one.

A nice selection...

> Weather Report "Heavy Weather"
> Miles Davis "A Kind of Blue"
> Prefab Sprout "Steve McQueen"
> Steely Dan "Aja"
> The Who "Live at Leeds"
> Marvin Gaye "What's Going On"

All of these albums are in the current selection that I am listening too! I've listened to all of them in the last month. Also John McLaughlin (Mahavishnu and Miles Davis stuff) and a bit of Santana too, but not the album you specified.
