I too keep collecting LP's despite not having enough time to give them a thorough listen! Sigh! One of the latest arrivals was the 50th Anniversary Abbey Road. Now that will be an interesting listen!

I can't relate so much with collecting music and not listening to it, but as I enjoy experiencing new music or recordings I have built up a rather large collection, a lot of which were rather mediocre recordings which I remembered for that reason and rarely listened to them. Mostly digital recordings. When I finally put together a decent digital source I was amazed to find how many of these recording were actually quite good. Good on me for not just throwing them away. :-)
It takes time to find the stuff I didn’t have time to listen to. 😀
Not just before I retired, recently, new to me SACD player so darn good I started buying used CD’s again, haven’t gotten to all of them yet.
Even if you don’t buy the music yourself: Friends gave me their LP’s when they went to CD when it was new. My friend left me his collection of 4,000 LP’s, primarily Jazz, so I am overwhelmed with new to me discoveries.
