I'm curious about who you are and how you found this site. Do you collect records? Are you interested in graphic design? Is there a certain genre of music you like? How about those gams on the Si Zentner cover?

Your comments are most appreciated - Feel free to include your web page address if you have one.

Thank you for visiting.
