I should count how many I have, but it would take forever. Probably around 150 or so. That's not counting my parents' vinyl collection, which amounts to around 100.
Sounds about right. My total is 128, according to an Excel spreadsheet.

I have Michael Jackson, Kraftwerk and Gary Numan along with the psychedelic/rock stuff. But seriously, we both need more essentials! I'm about to go on a huge 60s CD buying binge of Byrds/Kinks/Cream etc.

Nice. If you enjoy that early Michael Jackson stuff, the Parliament/Funkadelic records I mentioned are a must. They're funkier and more guitar-heavy, but that's hardly a bad thing.

This is what I would suggest (based upon what I've learned of your tastes over the years ):

King Crimson - In The Court Of The Crimson King
Cream - Disraeli Gears
Leonard Cohen - The Songs of Leonard Cohen; New Skin For The Old Ceremony
Elton John - Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
Genesis - Selling England By The Pound
Supertramp - Crime Of The Century; Breakfast In America
Nick Drake - Five Leaves Left; Pink Moon
Neil Young - After The Gold Rush; Rust Never Sleeps
Black Sabbath - Paranoid
Television - Marquee Moon
Dylan - Blood On The Tracks
Dire Straits - Dire Straits

Thanks Steph! Black Sabbath

Okay so BMG music has a sale right now... they always have something going on anyway but this one looks pretty good. Only 6 bucks for each CD plus free shipping plus triple music points provided I buy at least 4 CDs. The music points might even accumulate enough to get me an extra CD so cool... I start browsing their site, right... their collection is shit! lol... I mean they do have lots of albums by certain artists but.... none of the popular Dylan albums except for one which wasn't familiar to me, nothing by the Byrds, none of the albums you guys recommended by the Kinks but they have a bunch of other stuff including some hits package of their 70s hits or something. At least they did have Disraeli Gears. So I'm gonna get that one I think. And they have a decent amount of the Who catalogue. So I might get Who's Next, Tommy, Live at Leeds etc. But I really wanted to start with Byrds Greatest Hits and Village Preservation Society but they don't have either! BMG = EPIC PHAIL!

You should try the Amazon.com marketplace. You can find most stuff for 8-9 bucks after shipping on the HIGH end, and as cheap as like 3-4 bucks after shipping on the LOW end.

Yeah I am looking at the amazon marketplace actually. That's where I'll have to get those albums. OR the used CD store I frequent in Princeton.

Oh and BMG has only one Hendrix album, Band of Gypsys. Only one!

Okay since I wanted to take advantage of that offer from bmg no matter how limited the selection, I have just made a purchase. 4 albums for about 27 bucks total.

Cream - Disraeli Gears
The Who - The Who Sell Out
The Moody Blues - Days Of Future Passed
The Who - Who's Next (It's high time I owned this one. I have all the hits from it anyway!)

I was originally thinking of getting Tommy but The Who Sell Out seemed too interesting a concept to pass on. And I think with this purchase I will qualify for another free CD (still have to pay S&H) so my choices are Tommy, Live at Leeds, VU self titled, A Love Supreme, Music from Big Pink or The Band self titled. These are the only ones available.. that I'm interested in. I might go with VU or Coltrane, not sure.

But I'm psyched to listen to some psychedelia now!

Great choices, especially The Who Sell Out over Tommy.

If I were you, I'd take Music From Big Pink or VU's self-titled to go along with that.

So which Dylan album(s) did they have? With that guy, even his lesser known albums may contain many gems. Though he also has a few that are not suitable as introduction to the artist.

I just checked. It's a single disc hits compilation released in 2007. I already have a self made compilation so this is

You'd think they'd at least have Highway61 or Blood on the Tracks!

I think I'm the only person in the world who finds Marquee Moon terribly overrated and actually prefers their 2nd album, although neither has aged well.
