Greetings Pop Pickers!

Greetings Pop Pickers!

These were the immortal lines of DJ, Alan Freeman in the 1970’s as he ran through the all important, Radio 1 Chart to reveal the week’s new number one. The music business has changed a lot since then but during that time, I’ve assembled a fantastic collection of music that I’d like to share with you.

You will find jazz, blues, soul, funk, motown, hip-hop and drum and bass, rock ‘n roll, rockabilly, psychobilly, psychedelic and classic rock, glam rock, punk, new wave, new romantic, pop, Bit pop, reggae, ska, world music and even some classical.

I hope you will find something to your liking to enjoy and share. Welcome to George’s Record Collection.
