I usually don't do that, but I did it just yesterday with Culture Club...
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 12/19/06 - 7:06:53 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nope, never done it.

I have to buy there albums.

It's this weird thing I have. I AM COMPLETELY AGAINST GREATEST HITS ALBUMS.

I've done that with "greatest hits" albums, but not box sets. That's just too much money for someone or something I'm not even familiar with.

I bought Kylie Minogue's greatest hits.
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Thursday 12/21/06 - 12:52:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
Iron Maiden, but I was only 14 or so. That's my excuse.
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Thursday 12/21/06 - 2:20:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, to see if I liked their more popular songs.
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Thursday 12/21/06 - 3:42:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yup, CCR.
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Thursday 12/21/06 - 5:19:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes. Joy Division. The Complete works.

Does it count, if I received the CD as a gift ? Most of the CDs which I have, I did not buy for myself... they have been either birthday, or Christmas presents.
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Friday 12/22/06 - 12:00:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm against Greatest Hits or Best Ofs on principle, apart from where no other recorded works can be found, such as in the case of Robert Johnson.

So the answer is yes.

13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 12/24/06 - 9:06:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
I did for Nirvana.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Thursday 12/28/06 - 5:59:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
I never have but it seems like a good idea...that way you make up for never having bought one of their cds.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 12/29/06 - 3:39:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, a heck of a lot of my albums are greatest hits or cellections or whatever.
13 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 2/16/07 - 10:21:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, but there's a few out there I'd like to own.
13 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 3/28/07 - 3:48:38 PM EST (GMT-5)
Only one, Johnny Cash - The Legendary Sun Recordings, 3 CD's of his songs.

And i got a few as a present: a greatest hits album from the band America, and Herman van Veen (a Dutch singer, the only decent one as far as i know).. and oh yeh, Miles Davis.

13 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 4/18/07 - 12:08:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't know if this counts but I got lent one by The Clash.

I bought a CD like that by Pantera when I was younger. After hearing it, I bought a couple of their studio albums because I liked them so much.
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 5/26/07 - 7:54:08 AM EST (GMT-5)
I often have.

In some cases, a greatest-hits/best-of album has served as a good introduction to an artist or band, and I have then bought their original albums.

13 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 8/13/07 - 11:47:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
i have tons of them, like pantera, korn, david bowie. it's cheaper to just by those. you get most the songs you want, without paying for all the price for all of the albums
13 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 8/14/07 - 12:26:47 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yep, quite a few of them actually.
13 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 8/14/07 - 12:27:09 AM EST (GMT-5)
With Weird Al, yeah.
13 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 8/14/07 - 12:27:34 AM EST (GMT-5)
Oh, and greatest hits? Tons.
