I'm a fan for nearly four years now and started to collect vinyl when I was in high school. I have collected every album except Original Soundtracks and No Line and a. I also have a few 12'' singles (completed the trabant of AB last month
) and have some other special releases.
Well, I have to admit: Zooropa, Leave Behind and Dismantle are bootlegs paid around €20 for it. But Pop was €80 for me. The bootlegs are a bit crappy. Two last tracks of Dismantle are getting noisy fast. Leave Behind has a very small pinhole, so when you take it from your turntable it bows. Zooropa is all noisy.
I wanted to find the original Zooropa and No Line (Bomb and Leave are way too expensive) to finish my collection and be happy about it. The fun and joy of collect those vinyl is to get LP's for a decent price (not really counting the bootlegs. That fun is going to disappear a bit I'm afraid, and paying so much for Pop could be useless (it wouldn't I'm still very happy!). But we'll see.
