My first collection melted in a house fire. I still have the second, which I spent a good part of a year making CD copies of.
And I bought a new turn table last week.
I have a few pieces left here and there.. I have started buying vinyl exclusively if new music I want is released that way. It's so much cooler than a CD or digi download... Then, I rip it to the computer with my groovy Sony USB turntable!

I ordered the vinyl and my GF got me the 5CD/DVD for Christmas, so I didn't mind downloading the whole thing since the band technically did get our money for both already. I'm onto "Here Is No Why" right now and this so far, this is the only track where I feel like I can hear a difference from the original. I have to review this mammoth for the next issue of my publication, so I'm taking notes, haha.
Pending weather tom'w, I'll be picking up my freshly tuned up turntable. And since it's right next door, I'll try to catch the Robert Johnson disc one more time.

I have... maybe 125 LPs in a box in the basement. Some rare Beatles ones, too.
Hope they dont warp down there...
I still purchase records and have a decent size collection of Heavy Metal,Blues and Classic Rock.....and I still own every one I have ever bought dating back to the early 70's....including 45's *Just scored a pristine Jimi Hendrix "Crash Landing" record for $7.00 at Skinnies Records in Norfolk,Va...

Still seem to have a few laying around.....
Not only do I have all of my albums, but I have a big box of 45s. Some of you probably don't know what those are.
You probably still have your collection of 78's too.
