Hey, dsg, I know the "purists" can't stand the U.S. Capitol releases but that's how I came to know their music and I love 'em.
As for posting to the topic, I have all of the American releases on vinyl (VeeJay as well) including duplicates (some are original releases and some are reissues). I have many of their original 45s with pic sleeves. I also have the entire UK catalog on vinyl (LPs & EPs) - both as individuals and the highly sought after Blue Box sets as well as the MFSL box set and individuals. I also enjoyed collecting Imports from countries such as Canada, Mexico, Uruguay, Italy, Sweden, Germany, Spain, etc. My favorite Imports (and probably the most valuable) are my Red wax Japanese LPs. I collected Picture Discs and colored vinyl, too. I have all of their solo releases on vinyl up through around 1999-2000.
I like CDs because of their convenient size but I wouldn't trade my vinyl for the world (well, I probably would, but you know what I mean).
