    In the past it was James by a looong stretch.

    Currently Curtis and Isaac are head and head.

    Not really. He was 1) good, 2) prolific and 3) his albums aren't crazy $$$.

    I certainly have more Tjader albums than any other jazz artist in my collection. Probably more than any Latin artist (though I suspect Joe Bataan wins this one).

    In soul, I'd definitely be on the James Brown boat too.

    James Brown (15 LPs & countless 45s)
    Gangstarr (six LPs + eleven 12"s, not including doubles!)
    Fruko (I have at least 10 by him I think)
    Afrosound (10 LPs)
    Michi Sarmiento (7/8 LPs, "Hong Kong" 45, "Tihuanaco" 45)


    The most copies of a single record title, I would have to go with my 8 copies of Dennis Coffey's Evolution, 7 copies of Soul Searchers Salt of the Earth LP, the 5/6 copies of Ray Barretto's Acid LP, just realized I have 6 copies of Love Unlimited Orchestra's My Sweet Summer Suite LP.

    All of the above titles I just buy instinctively whenever I see em for cheap.

    We could start a new thread about this, too^^^^^

    Sun Ra or the Fall.

  • definitely Sun Ra.

  • Bobby Hutcherson
    Andrew Hill
    Jackie McLean

    in that order.

    I'm surprised that it wasn't Miles Davis or Coltrane.

    I've had several hundred copies of a Boston random rap comp from 1986 called Boston Goes Def. Hundreds each of some 12"s too, as I believe you know. You should really let me holler at one of those Soul Searchers joints though!
