The list below represents a wide selection of the groups and genre's I enjoy listening to. Many represent my attempt  to rebuild my old album, 8 track, and cassette collections onto CD from the 1960's up to the early 1990's.

 I have many "greatest hits" selections due mainly to the fact that I enjoy having the "best of" groups or individuals because they are often all I could find or contain songs from an album I either don't own or don't care to own in it's entirety.

 I will be adding new titles as I acquire some additional music I feel is worthy of the list.
