My aim is to link-credit all companies and individuals on all media that I collect or trade.
Specialist area of interest and expertise are UK hit singles and albums since 1952, which I aim to get a digital copy of all of them from original format, be it shellac, vinyl, tape or CD. I buy and listen to almost exclusively UK releases.
