Welcome to my site!


This website lists all my collections, including BBC Records (British Broadcasting Corporation) and other television themes, BBC Transcription Discs, BBC Radioplay Music, BBC Radiophonic Workshop as well as other more 'mainstream' artists like The Cure and The Stranglers.
I use the site to check that I am not buying something I already have, unless the one for sale is of better quality! Please note that none of the items listed on this site are for sale at this time, however, there are some items I am actively buying.

This site probably has the most complete discography of BBC Records on the internet!

BBC Records and Tapes, people ask ...

Here are some questions you may have about the BBC Records and Tapes releases.

1Was the price you paid for a BBC Record based on the catalogue number?
2Did early BBC Albums have different catalogue numbers for each side and did others seem to follow odd orders?
3Did original BBC Transcription Discs and BBC Radioplay Music discs have a very small print run?
4Did the BBC label have the widest selection of subjects of any label?
5How many unique standard releases are there on the BBC label that I catalogue?
6How many BBC Records label designs over the years have there been?
7Do I have more tracks written by members of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop than any other for BBC releases?
8Has BBC Records had success in the UK music charts?
9What was the first standard official BBC Records release?

Following Google's last updates, some SEO websites are suggesting that adding reviews as well as making the ratings more prominent will bring in more traffic.

With this in mind, I have started adding reviews for the records I have recorded onto the site as well as my rating. Viewers can add your own ratings but not reviews at this stage. I might allow this for registered users when I get a moment!

I will post recent updates and other interesting things I find!

Does size matter?
