Hey, I'll take the Shakespeare, but can I trade the Bible for "History of religions"?

OK, the book eh? "The Collected Writings of Quentin Crisp" (that way I know I'll stay sane)

1. Folkways anthology (all 4 volumes)

2. The Complete Beatles' recordings

3. The Folk-Legacy Catalogue (complete)

4. The Electra Folk Sampler (all 4 records)

5. Rachmaninoff's C#m played by Clifford Curzon

6. "78" of Lucretia Bori singing "Un Bel Dia" (the rest of "Butterfly" makes me ill)

7. Reader's Digest's "Clasical Music's Greatest Hits" (all twenty CDs) I know it's a tacky collection for folks who don't want to hear the "dull bits" but we ARE limited for space here, and obviously I can't do this at all without a lot of cheating.

8. The Caedmon collection of English and Scottish Traditional music (every damn volume)

Shit, this is too difficult, I'm gonna need a larger lifeboat!

"Woody", my 1950 Martin 0-18.

Rick (too greedy by half!)
