Pride and JoyWire

When I first got into U2, I used to hate people who put their collections up cause I always thought "Man, I could never have a collection like *that*" Now, I am quite proud of my collection. I'm not putting this up to brag about it, I'm just trying to show other fans that if a 16 yr old with a limited budget and resources could get this far, *anyone* could. Remind yourself, I am very thrifty about my collections. I don't understand people who buy cassette singles or albums on tape to complete their set. Also, I listen to all my records. When I first bought the "All I Want Is You" vinyl, it was in it's original wrapping. What did I do? I admired it and the minute I got home, I unwrapped it and played it. I saw the single to The Fly at an expo. Although it would have completed my Achtung Baby single set, I didn't see the point in paying 11 dollars for a scruffy single with only one track. (Yeah, I know the whole "It was only sold for two weeks" thing...maybe I'll get it next time.) And finally, I didn't see the point in paying 22 dollars for a four-vinyl set of Discotheque remixes and though I drooled over it the rest of the day, I didn't buy the special Zoo station vinyl.
Enough blabbering, here my collection.

Vinyl

First, let me say a few things. All my vinyls are in good condition, both the case and the record itself, with a few exceptions. The Boy case is a little beat up and the Mysterious Ways record is pretty warped (which is okay cause this guy that I always buy records from gave it to me). Other than that, most of them are in near mint condition. all the older records were bought used except for the 5 inch UF single, it's an old copy but never owned. The most I've paid for one of the albums was 25 dollars for POP cause it was new. all of the other were bought for under 10 dollars. For the singles, the most expensive was the Even Better than the Real Thing (cause it has the poster) for 20, next was All I Want Is You at 12 and the 5 inch UF for 10. Those marked by a (N) were in the wrapper when I got them.

(Btw, I got this by accident, I was at this record store and had finally found a copy of R&H. When I went to check the records, I found this single stuffed inside. My first thought was "Cha-ching, I hope the cashier doesn't notice!" So I take it up to the counter to buy it but the guy checks the records and finds
the hidden one. I totally sink but then he says "Hmmm, looks like you got a bonus..." and he sticks it back in and doesn't charge me for it! Some people are just too cool.)
