I have been record collector and music lover for about 40 years. My music taste is very wide, if a record is good, it's good, no matter what genre it is. To give examples of this, I list some of my favorites at the end of this page. I have missed many good albums on the list, as you always do. My favorite artists, who have been with me through all years are Neil Young and John Prine.

✔ I strive to do things properly here , but I make mistakes, just like most people, if I've missed something or made an error somewhere, please let me know. Or feel free to edit, and I will be thankfull. But please comment why and what I did wrong. I do always try reply or respond to comments, questions and advices.

✔ Please don't add "placeholder" images. Everybody has a camera nowadays. Good images are good, bad images are better than no images and most importantly, no images are always better than incorrect ones.

✔ I do not sell anything and I do not make MP3 files. You do not even need to ask.

Some of my favorite albums:
According to me they should be in every collection. Some are still good and some have not really managed to stand up. But all the records have been diligently played and meant something over the years passed.

I had two rules when I made the list: no artist should be on the list twice and the list would not go beyond one hundred records. The first was no problem, the second ... was not so easy. Now I have the ambition to get it down to 100 albums and make a top 10 list. It is possible?
