First off, please email me at mike@mentomusic.com if you are interested in trading mento recordings. I am interested in trading CD-R recordings (with cover scans when possible).

This page is for mento collectors who want to sell or trade mento records and the like. Send me a description of what you would like to trade or sell along with your contact information and I will post it on this page. The extent of my involvement is to introduce the two parties via this page. All transactions are between the two parties. I am not the middleman.

If you are looking for mento that can be easily purchased on CD, check the Can I Buy Mento? page for a complete rundown.
