I have been playing The Out Sounds From Way In and found a song Baroque Hoedown, that is on my The Wizard of Speed and Time DVD:Some more came to mind:
I have LP, cassette, and CD copies of Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds.
I have LP and CD copies of Perrey-Kingsley's The IN Sound from Way OUT, and I have a CD set of The OUT Sound from Way IN coming (set of their albums containing this one).
I have LP and CD versions of Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells, plus a compressed CD I made for use in the car.
I have LP and CD versions of Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells 2, plus a compressed CD I made for use in the car.
Only 9?I ended up with 9 Peppers, without trying to buy a lot. Here's the list in order of purchase, with reason* for buying each copy:
Used UK 8 track - had never seen an 8 track before (I have never owned a player)
Used Original mono LP (unplayably scratched) - Because it was an original copy.
US 1970s pic disc LP - a present
Canadian 1970s marble vinyl LP - bought mail order, unseen, pre-internet because I thought it would look cool. It doesn't. The Beatles - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
Original UK CD in HMV box - my first 'proper' copy. (Up until this point I was playing my brother's copy.)
Remastered UK CD - because it was a remaster
Used UK 70s stereo LP - handed down from my brother when he gave up vinyl
SDE BD - you know why
Used 70s UK gold inlay cassette - bought because I had so many other formats I thought I might as well. And the gold inlays are fairly iconic. So this is the only copy I bought on purpose to say 'I have another copy of Pepper'.
If I saw a DAT very, very cheap I would 'have' to buy it.
* I'm not sure the word 'reason' is very apt for this thread.
Linda, I think we need to introduce some sort of 'handicap' system in the counting rules. We should only start counting your copies (of any album) over the first 10 you own, otherwise you will always win!Perrey's Quad Reel The Amazing New Electronic Pop Sound. was one of the first things I ever heard in Quad. And it was in my bedroom in '69. No quad gear was available except QR.
Two FM stations broadcast simultaneously in 1969 ish. One did the fronts. The other did the rears. So, Dad's stereo and mine comprised my first "Quad" system. All they played were Vanguard reels. Country Joe, Perrey. I was hooked... Two years later, I started buying Quad records. In '73, Q8, QR, SQ, QS & CD-4 hardware and software kept finding its' way into my house. Still do.
OK, Pepperland, let me count the ways,10:
US 2ch LP, Blue UK LP box, Red mono UK LP box (incl Abbey Road & Let it Be foldover mixes), MoFi 1/2 speed, MoFi 1/2 speed LP Collection box, US individual 2ch CD, UK rolltop desk 2ch CD box, 2ch US Black CD box, Japan mono CD box, Sgt. Pepper super deluxe
