COMPILATIONS "LOOK WHAT I COULD FIND"     home

From the day I turned 16, I have found thousands of fabulous 45's by often unknown artists or long forgotten gems hidden as a b-side. Now it is time to give these weird sounds the credit they deserved. It is amazing; just LOOK WHAT I COULD FIND in thrift stores, flea markets and sometimes even IN THE TRASH CAN.  All the songs on these home made compilations are from the original 45 rpm records released from 1976 till 1999. I tried to exclude any song that has been compiled before on vinyl, but as I don't own each and every compilation album ever made, there might be some songs that you already own on other compilation albums.  Look and enjoy...
