Has anyone managed to fill an entire back catalogue of any single label on vinyl?

I've started the long process of buying all the Critical releases from number 1 through to the present...

I own all the Modulations back cat, but I was wondering if anyone out there owns a complete back catalogue of a label on vinyl that has more that 10 or so releases?

I used to know a guy called Viny (gave up mixing years ago) who owns all the Renegade Hardware back catalogue. I nearly cried when I saw it.

Anyone?

No but the idea is starting to overtake me a bit. I would love to own any of Soul:R, Metalheadz, Samurai, Exit, Creative Source, Signature, Hidden Hawaii the list could go on. I keep looking on discogs, wanting to pull the trigger but i dont know where to start. Its becoming a bit of an obsession to be honest, if i ever won the lottery i think buying up full collections would be one of the first things i'd do lol

Metalheadz & Signature oh dear lord how fucking cool would that be. Problem is there is sooo many for each label so could be very expensive job + I reckon some of the older Metalheadz bits might be hard to track down.

At least with Critical I own the majority if not all releases since 2008/2009 so not that much ground to cover.

Soul:r might be a good shout mate. Only 60/70 releases deep, I only own a few myself though :/

Not from a label that has more than 10.

I have the complete R-Sound back catalogue, as well as all 2nd Strike Muziks, GB Beats & XXX records' releases :teeth:

A mate of mine used to own all of the Month series, that Formation offshoot

At the time of the labels being complete so to speak I had:

Soul:r 1-20 on vinyl (switched to digital in 06/07 and own 1-60 digitally (best label around for me))
Signature 1-12 on vinyl (and own 1-18 and all albums digitally)
Revolve:r 1-11 (complete digitally)
True Playaz (yes I'm old) 1-50 (Admittedly 1 or 2 releases shy)
I had most of the early Formation Records
All early Metalheadz up until about 06/07 from VIP001 and then meth02

I did start dj'ing back in 96 and have bought entire record collections from dj's along the way. I once bought a collection off a friend that ended up being over 2000 12" for £500 and it went from 98 (When I bought it) back to 90/91) and it was full of anthems and complete labels!

Respect to you Disturbd (y)

everyone should definitely have a race to collect the whole critical back catalogue
Its on bro...I think i've got a slight headstart if I am honest ;)

Lol Kasra's sitting reading this with a smile i'm sure
It's certainly a compliment to Critical as a label.
I'd rather he be smiling at a picture of the completed back cat though. Bring it on.

i have the full formation records back cat and all v recordings up to the launch of liquid v
Yes A-Jay that must be some collection! Big ups for commenting mate, you must have a stack of wax
