I LOVE MUSIC... (with Links)
some links updated 27th August 98

I collect records (including CDs), tapes, videos of all sizes and formats of the artists mentioned below (and others). So if you sell or trade let me know. My interest in music has also led me to write some articles and reviews in various magazines and papers (mostly in Finnish or Swedish) if anyone's interested. I'm adding some photographs I've taken on a separate page once I've scanned them...
