Southern african music researcher; enjoys music in all types of languages. Many of the records uploaded by me here (but not all) may be available for swap or sale, do contact me by message on 45cat if interested in a particular item. Vinyl is generally hard to find nowadays in Zimbabwe with no vinyl shops or collectors whom one can approach to purchase from or swap with. Most of the items uploaded by me in 2013 were from the collection of one person who was selling a large number of items. Some of those I had been searching for for many years and am unlikely to come across again.
