Anybody own any vinyl?

I have War, UF and JT on vinyl. What do you have, and did you buy it new, used, or special ordered years later? Also, are the later albums even available on vinyl? I heard they are but I've never seen one.

*turns and looks at 500+ albums on vinyl*

AB was the first one I bought on cd; the earlier records were all first purchased on vinyl. I only just recently completed the cd collection with Wide Awake. Or was it UF?

I proudly own all their albums in vinyl, from Boy (I have 2 copies of that one, in fact) to Zooropa. Plus the Sunday Bloody Sunday 12 inch 45 rpm single...all of them are Brazilian editions but October, which is Argentinian. First one I bought was UF, then Wide Awake, then the previous ones. All the others I bought on the first week of their release in my country. First CD I bought was POP, but I still regret not having bought it on vinyl as well...much more funky. All of them are in great shape and I still listen to them...a lot. Talking about a dinosaur, LOL

In America it became very hard to find vinyl in the late 80's- early 90's. I bought my War, UF and JT new. If AB was ever on vinyl I never saw it. Where are you people finding these things?

Good question -

I have Joshua Tree on vinyl. It was given to me by a friend (used). I'm planning on framing it sooner or later.

After I became a fan, my parents gave me their vinyl JT. When I had to move away from my hometown 2 weeks after graduating high school, my best friend gave me a copy of UF on vinyl...it's one of my most cherished posessions.

The albums I have on records (which where all bought at a used record shop) are:

Boy
October
War
Under a Blood Red Sky
Unforgettable Fire
Wide Awake in America
Joshua Tree
Rattle and Hum
POP

12 inch:

The Fly

Mysterious Ways

I collected the Cd's first, but thought that the actual records where way cool. So I bought a record player and LOVE it!! Now, if I can only find more 90's LP's around here, I'll be happy!! As you can tell, I love collecting records.

Well, its not that close to Long Beach, but like I said in my other post, Amoeba Music on Sunset Boulevard in LA has just about any record on vinyl you could possibly think of, at pretty decent prices. There is also Black Hole Records in downtown Fullerton...pretty good selection but a little pricy.

I have Boy through R&H and all of the 12 inch JT singles on vinyl opened.
Then as soon as I heard the first news of vinyl being replaced by cd I went on a shopping spree and I have Boy through R&H unopened.

Have everything thru R&H on vinyl as well as some vinyl singles, including the first 2 "4 U2 play" single 4 packs.
I remember several years ago when Newbury Comics (record store in Mass) was having a big sale and I got around to buying CD versions of Boy thru Joshua Tree, the sales girl (who was at least 10 years younger than me) said something like "taking advantage of the sale to discover some old U2"...I had to explain to her that I had all the albums on a big black round discs that she might not be aware of, and also that Paul McCartney had been in some other band before Wings.
