Mike's collection site, welcome !


This website lists all my collections, including BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) and other television themes, BBC Transcription Discs 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!
