Here are some records I proudly own. They are 45's
unless otherwise noted. They are in no particular
order. They are in all different conditions. If anyone
has any info on the
collectability or worth, or has any interesting
comments, praises, criticism, or info about any of
these records, feel free to e-mail
BwanaDon@webtv.net. As far as selling any, that's
still up in the air at this time.
Page under construction, I should have some titles here soon. Check often as I will add little by little as time permits.
