how do you put your records / CDs on the shelf?
for example, focus on Saint...

OPTION 1 -
all issues of a given record, one after the other? like this? -
- 1984 Warriors of the Son
- 2001 Warriors of the Son
- 2004 Warriors of the Son
- 2014 Warriors of the Son
​- 1986 Time's End
- 2002 Time's End​
​- 2011 Time's End
- 1988 Too Late For Living
- etc.

OR

OPTION 2 -
all issues of a given record interspersed with the rest of the discography? like this?
- 1984 Warriors of the Son
- 1986 Time's End
- 1988 Too Late For Living
- 1997 Saint
- 1999 The Perfect Life
- 2001 Warriors of the Son
- 2002 Time's End​
- 2004 In The Battle
- 2004 Warriors of the Son
- 2005 Live '05
​- 2011 Time's End
- 2014 Warriors of the Son

​OR

OPTION 3
- something else?


I'm having trouble telling if the way I'm asking this makes sense so let me know if not...​

Option 2 I suppose. I put them alphabetically by band and then each band's discography chronologically.

I no longer have many CD's and have zero LP's, but if I were going to organize a collection, I would absolutely organize according to Option 1.

I prefer to have different versions of the same title together.

Pretty much random for me. I have my CDs in shoe boxes. The problem is I have to go on an expedition to find a particular CD if I haven't listened to it in over a month. 

My LPs are not as bad, since I have a smaller collection, but they are still a random arrangement.

This is a delightfully ridiculous question, I love it. I don't face this one specifically because I don't have multiple versions of the same album, but I have similar issues as well.

I would ultimately default to organizing by original copywrite/recording date, which I guess would be option 1. I somehow skipped power metal completely so I know nothing about Saint specifically and if some of these are re-recordings then that would be another variable. . . but if they're just re-issues or re-masters I would do option 1.

I like to have my vinyl in alphabetical order...

I have 950 records. I sort by genre, then artist. I don't worry so much about chronological. I know, I'm awful.

Basically what Son of Nun said. Alphabetically. Then if I own multiple releases by the same artist, I try to list them chronologically.
