    Like hundreds.....
    I like new stuff too. I buy about 2 a month.

    Crap...I’m old.

    I don’t think of U2 or Tom Petty as classic rock, but I guess they are. Now I’m kinda depressed...thanks.

    Pretty much everything in my Vinyl Collection is Classic Rock. It would be easier for me to tell what's not...

    LOL, since my first copy of Led Zeppelin II was a 1969 Christmas gift, vinyl of course, and vinyl was all I bought during the “classic rock” period, I chuckled a bit when I read this; in a good way :aok

    Here are my hard to replace loved ones that I can think of:
    Urge Overkill - Saturation
    Tom Petty - Wildflowers
    Zepplin - II early Press UK, although the remaster is pretty stellar.
    Zepplin - IV first Press UK
    Zepplin - V early Press UK
    Tin Lizzy - Jailbreak (early UK spaceship Press)



    Hmmm even this list could get long and detailed...

    He’s a thread I’ve been trying to get some traction with. I post these on another forum but thought I’d add them here to see if it sticks. Be interesting from a musicians point of view.

    A lot.
    But not as many as you’d expect from someone my age.(54)
    We need to determine what period of time defines “classic rock”. ‘Cause I ain’t buyin’ stuff that came out post-mid ‘80s as classic rock.
    Guns n Roses? Please.
    NOT “classic rock”.

    Cause we’re old... they play GNR on the classic radio stations. Face it (and I don’t like it) it’s 2019. GNR hey day is more than 25 years ago. And almost 30 years old

    Oh, I know.
    By that reasoning, on a long enough timeline, everything becomes “classic rock”.

    Really depends on your age, or maybe when you were exposed to rock & roll; don't it?

    Classic Rock, to me, is more late 50s to early 60s; before The British Invasion stuff. I was about 7 when I got the pop-radio habit. No FM in those days..., but still lots of great music, even if KILT in Houston dialed back their format to late 40s, early-mid50s bland pop stuff after midnite (or maybe after 10pm). Talking 1962.

    There really wasn't much of an album scene until the mid-60s. Then there came headshop record stores and in the 70s, the mega retailers. Mostly, I picked up on Elvis, Everly Bros, Little Richard in the 80s when had time to indulge my music listening/audiophile hobby.

    This is a good topic. The early days, aside from The Beach Boys, and surf music like Dick Dale, was a .45 single scene. Most early 60s hits were not promoted or available on 33LP, that really changed with stereo LPs on the scene. First 45 I ever bought was Satisfaction. How many speakers did we blow up on my old man's Magnavox console? A couple... First album I bought was Wheels Of Fire. Didn't have a record player of my own, besides my first stereo machine was a Panasonic 8 Track, which was 1969...

    The albums I consider Classics are more from the mid-60s on. It was years later when I first heard Bluesbrakers w/Clapton; but until Sgt Peppers, I never bought a Beatles album. I think probably The Beatles albums came along on the crest of the LP-Wave, so lots of 3rd/4th grade kids got them and soon after 45s were a thing of the past.

    The Classic Albums I identify with include the great late 60s jazz/horn ensemble groups like The Flock, BS&T & CTA, then Glen Campbell doing Jimmi Webb songs, Simon & Garfunkel, Mamas & The Papas, Three Dog Night (live album), Jefferson Airplane, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Canned Heat, Steppenwolf, Credence, Cream and Blind Faith were done by 69... Traffic, Hendrix

    When it comes to later Classics, then Talking Heads, Police, Cars, The Clash, and Mid-70s Black Rock like Stevie Wonder, Al Green, EW&F, Marvin Gaye...

    Excuse the rambling; As far as since the mid-80s; I've gone retro. About all I've bought new since then were a few Neil Young albums. Nothing else in the contemporary music scene. Never did buy an I-pod or any I-tunes.

    I own the ones in bold. My classic rock collection numbers in the hundreds though I don't listen to much of it any longer.

    Is owning classic rock albums supposed to be a rare thing these days?
