Do we as collectors keep in mind ANY sense of inherent musical value???[/quote:3hrt9wau]
I don’t really do.

For me the two – collecting and the music itself – are almost entirely separate things.
Right now I don’t really care about the new Pumpkins music – I don’t even listen to it – but I can still enjoy collecting the different releases. The game stays the same: finding out what the different releases are, and trying to find a copy. Fun times.

If a release has music that can’t be found anywhere else, the value increases for me. But this is not related to the quality of the music.

On the other hand, it’s always a favourite piece of music, an album I really like, that gets me into collecting mode. That’s what happened with the Pumpkins and with many other bands.
