    Default How many copies do you have of Hotel California?

    With the Legacy release coming up, I starting thinking about all the times I've gotten multiple copies of albums, and I know I'm not the only one. Maybe it's buying it in vinyl, cassette tape, CD, digital download... maybe it's buying it as a special edition...maybe someone gave it to me as gift. there are lots of reasons I own more than one copy of an album. I think, of all the Eagles albums, Hotel California is probably the one most people have multiple copies of (although if that's not the case, feel free to say so).

    I have the following copies of Hotel California:


    • the original LP
    • another LP that a friend gave me because her mom no longer wanted it lol
    • a CD
    • a DVD-A special remaster
    • the 40th anniversary deluxe re-release CD
    • an LP from a collectible set that a friend gave me (You know who you are )


    Total: 6 copies.

    How many do you have? Or are you thinking this is crazy?

    I have the original lp, the cd, and the 40th Annv. cd - that makes three copies. I feel that is enough.

    Sad to say. 0. I really haven't built up my CD collection of their albums.

    Brothers for life. RIP Glenn

    I'm not sure I believe in fate, but I know that crossing paths with Glenn Lewis Frey in 1970 changed my life forever, and it eventually had an impact on the lives of millions of other people all over the planet. It will be very strange going forward in a world without him in it. But, I will be grateful, every day, that he was in my life. Rest in peace, my brother.

    I have the CD and the 40th anniversary CD, and that's enough for me, I keep the second one in my car.

    I have three copies - the original vinyl album I purchased back in the day, which is almost unplayable because it's worn out, another autographed vinyl copy that I was lucky enough to get at auction that I had matted and framed, and the CD that came in the boxset I purchased several years ago that includes CD-sized replicas of all the original six albums including all inserts and liner notes (very cool, btw).

    shun - if you aren't going to buy the Legacy boxset, this boxset is a much less expensive alternative. You can find it online these days for between $20 - $40.

    2 LPs (one in great condition framed and another one that I play that is in rougher shape on the cover) and 2 CDs (one being the new 40th anniversary edition).

    So 4 in total.

    Ok, I went home last night & went thru my Eagles music. Between LPs, CDs & boxed sets, I have 14 copies of Hotel California. I have my original LP and then a few from friends plus all the various boxed sets I have bought. Every time someone downsizes their music collection, I end up with the Eagles music. I need to downsize!!!
