ornamentsIt wouldn't be a record collector's website unless I published my wish list - songs I'm still hunting down, and for which I'd happily barter from my relatively vast treasure chest, plus a handful of very scarce albums. Almost by definition, these records are pretty rare: If a guy like me doesn't already own them, they're tough to come by. Some haven't even been officially released, while others have been - but on albums I don't don't otherwise want (collectors can be picky). Anyway, let's hope some entrepreneurial record label is surfing the web and lifts this list for ideas when compiling next year's reissues.... Until then, if you have a copy of any of these, let's talk! Drop me a line...

Michael Stipe Memorial Section. I'm a big R.E.M. fan, but I don't own any of their fan club singles, many of which (but not all) included Christmas songs (read more). By the time I discovered them, the ship had sailed - and I have thus far been unwilling (or unable) to pay the hefty fare to climb aboard. I've had to content myself with bootlegs and sharity. But, if anyone out there would be willing to entertain a fair offer for their collection, send me an email .
