Record collector,

Soul, Funk, Disco, Rare Groove & Boogie.

Actually loving music in all genres & styles with just a few exceptions.
In collecting concentrating on 70s & 80s Soul, Funk & Disco.
Along the way also grown fond of Caribbean Salsa, Merengue &
Surinam Kaseko.

Discogs is like the Sagrada Familia. It will never be finished.
Gave it my best shot for more than 5 years and planned to
leave the building at July 17, 2013. Making a come-back
in January, 2014 after a long break of almost half a year.

(5/5) = Excellent
(4/5) = Good
(3/5) = Mediocre
(2/5) = Poor
(1/5) = .....

Vinyl = (5/5)

All wouldn't be possible without the patience, understanding
and love of my wife MinimusMCX
