EPs & Singles

EPs and singles form a large part of my collection, not only because I like Bond music but because they are relatively easy to collect. From the original film song singles to artists interpretations from around the world, EPs and singles come in a huge variety of different picture sleeves. Perhaps the most impressive are the illustrated 1960s singles from Italy.
