    I have 2. The first is a first US pressing of London Calling I found at a going out of business sale at a local record store. ALL vinyl was $2 per side, bar none, so, $8. I HAD to get it. The other is an original copy of Abraxis, given to me by my uncle, it still has the poster in it.

    Satanic Majesty's Request: original pressing.
    Are You Experienced: original pressing.
    Freak Out! Mothers of Invention: original Verve pressing
    Nine to the Universe, Jimi Hendrix
    Hank Williams Box Set: came with a glossy portrait hiding behind the cardboard filler.
    Big Bamboo: still has original rolling paper (good thing my habits have changed in the last couple years :D)
    Unknown Pleasures, Joy Division: new 180-grain, but the packaging is true to the original (right down to the textured sleeve) and it sounds better than any CD release did.

    I did have a 78 RPM of Hoagy Carmichael with Stardust on one side and Georgia On My Mind on the other side.

    'Exile On Main St.' - The Rolling Stones.
    Original pressing, very good condition (sleeve and record), complete with the set of postcards.

    I also have some original pressings of Neil Young records that I won't part with (Tonight's The Night, On The Beach, Time Fades Away, American Stars'n Bars).

    I've got several crates packed away-lost one crate a long time ago that got placed on top of a heat register when moving into a new place and left to warp. Still have some good collectables- Blind Faith nude album, Roxy Music nude album, Lynyrd Skynyrd Street Survivors flame album, Sticky Fingers Warhol cover, in the cellophane white vinyl white album. Got a bunch of 45s most are well played with lots of sentimental value-got a mint Love Me Do on a Tollie lable that I know's worth a few bucks

    I've got tons. The 1962 live "Bo Diddley's Beach Party" is a stunning performance of two loud guitars, bass and drums with some low fidelity that is fixed by cranking the volume. On the 45 front I have a pristine Sun recording of Jerry Lee Lewis doing Breathless that spent it's life in a dust free juke box. The sound simply blasts out of the speakers with that one. I also have an original 45 of Buddy Holly doing Peggy Sue. Slightly scratchier is the "faster than LP" performance of Help by the Beatles.

    I also have the White Album on white vinyl. Only played it 4 or 5 times. I have never been able to verify this but I was told when I bought it (sometime in the 70s) that there were only 2500 made.
