2009 Purge of Track Library

Postby Alan Sigmon » Sat Jul 18, 2009 3:01 pm

I am purging some unwanted material from my track library. Some of this I offered for sale before, but there is quite a lot of new material.

If you are interested, contact me either by private message on this board or at sigmonbooks2006 at earthlink.net. (remove spaces and replace at with symbol).

Prices are listed. Final cost will of course include postage.
