How large is your U2 CD collection??

The topic speaks for itself. I'am trying to gauge where I stand as far as collecting non mp3 sourced CDR's. SHN converted CDR's DO count also as there is no loss of info or quality.

Currently I have approximately 230 U2 shows on CDR.

Where does everyone else stand and if anyone wants to trade for non mp3 sourced material send me an email.

When you talk about shows, I wonder why you limit it to just CDRs. Most of the best stuff from the 80s was not recorded on CDR but on records and then in the 90s transfered to CD. I have a lot of this stuff on tape and its just as good if not better than various shows on CDR.
I have about 50 bootlegs and all the commercially released CDs and single CDs. I'm really getting into Video Bootlegs which is a smaller area, because they are not that many PRO SHOT boots. I may E-mail you for your list. Right now I'm completing a trade, so first things first.

Sting2, I'am also including original silver CD commercial bootlegs in my total. I should have been more clear I guess. Basically anything that is not mp3 sourced is what I was referring to.

I remember the old days of going to a record show and paying $50 for a double silver commercial bootleg. It was exciting but expensive. Thank goodness for the age of CD burning!

Oh by the way, I probebly have about 50 CD bootlegs that are the original silver commercial CD bootlegs. I also have about 30 LP vinyl bootlegs from the day (man, does that make me feel old!). I also have about 300 shows on tape from the old tape trading days.

Man I feel like a beginner. I have about 25 commercial releases, two double-CD boots from the Elevation tour, and one single-CD boot from JT tour. Then I have a couple of boots on tape and a bunch of B-sides and rarities on tape. Pity so much of my good stuff is on tape, I don't listen to it as much as I would.

And I always thought I was obsessed...

Same here I got JT, AB, R&H, ATYCLB and about 12 CDRs with B sides/live boots.

I think we should start a support group:

Hi, my name is Daisy and I have less than 50 U2 CDs

:O

Ok. Here goes:

Albums: 14 (including Passengers and Million Dollar Hotel)

Singles: 12

Rarities, etc: 3

Bootlegs: 57 (I think...constantly in a state of flux...)

That makes for a grand total of...86. Damn. That's *way* too many. And yet, mysteriously, I feel as though I will somehow obtain more...
