Master Serie


Note: This is a series, not a label on it's own. Always add it in the "Series" field, as 2nd field after the actual label.

Compilations of (mostly) French singers big hits, issued on cassettes, CDs, VHS, DVDs.
Mostly released for the French market but there are also a few Belgian and Canadian releases.
Not to be confused with Master Series (3)
