Rez's Completely Bizarre and Eclectic Music Collection

I don't claim to have actually chosen all of these -- some were freebies in boxfuls of records, take one take all... If it's a fairly mainstream title, I probably didn't buy it on purpose (bunches of 'em means bunches of boxes!) If you've never heard of it, it's a fair bet I paid Real Money for it. Alas, some are badly-worn and beyond use.
