i'm just about buying all three remastered collector's edition cd's with resembling cover artwork & caught myself gazing in grace at the originals on vinyl i've collected over the years & how careful i handle them,so no harm,crease or scratch comes near them(my girlfriend is not allowed to go near them,she's a child of the cd era!)!i'm just hoping that i'm not the only one & i'm curious,if anyone else feels the same?!my most prized are the following...........
1.all original 'factory'  first pressings (which they are to my knowledge)
2.og pics of 'the basement-cologne' i accidentally found (introduced me to this site)
3.the book 'an ideal for living' first press (great insight!)
4.scarce vinyl bootlegs (pearl harbor,factory by the moonlight,death trip,just to mention my fave's)
a bit slim,i know,that's why i would love to hear from you.i bet there are a lot of stories out there like : ''i bought 'AIFL' in.........'' or '' my mate showed me this & then i......'' & so on.cheers for any response.

Transmission 7", fully autographed. I put it in a plastic sleeve the night I got back from the gig and it's only been taken out of that sleeve twice that I recall. It lives in a biscuit tin along with around 30 other of my fave 7-inchers, never to be sold.

Got a fair few things signed etc but these two stick out

"Index" - first single by Felt - signed by Lawrence - he later told me that this was the only one he had ever signed - it only came about because I had it on me when I bumped into him in Virgin Megastore in the 90's

"Love Will Tear Us Apart" 7" - signed by two people who I interviewed 6 mths apart in 1988 - Peter Hook and John Peel!

'cuz i was too busy waffling with steve.

I dont have any signed stuff but I'm very proud of my A Christmas of Joy pink pic disc and the New Order Dreams Never End 3 Lp box with the first demoes and interview in a 7" - dont know how are they prized but they are small teasures at least in my heart
as for the other bands i guess the Death in June's State laughter/Holywater 7" with stiker (1982) is "well prized" and quite rare - but then again what really counts is the beauty of the cover and the magic of the musik

Sordide Sentimental in very nice condition. I still regret selling the negative blue sleeve of Hand in Glove in 1996 though. And all 3 copies of Love Buzz I've owned. And, oh never mind.

my 2 favs are 'Absolute Classic Masterpieces' by FELT on vinyl, in the form of 2 x mayking test pressings(only known copy in existence), and the 2 copies of the pathetically rare CHAMELEONS album 'What Does Anything Mean ? Basically' on pink vinyl..

Lee thanks again for opening my eyes to Felt. Great band; so underrated.
