Tom is seeking the following records. If you have any of these for sale or trade, p
lease let him know (Email link at bottom.)

Some of these are rather rare and valuable, while others are quite common but have somehow eluded his collection. Note: just because a disc is listed here doesn't necessarily mean Tom can actually afford some of these. There are a few (like the Parkway 78 shown above) that will probably always remain out of reach. Thanks!
