Discography Page (Temp)

I define The Roots as the full band, or the band without a rapper, or two or more members of the Roots that includes either Questlove or Black Thought.
I'm not including Ben Kenny, Martin Luther, Captain Kirk, Knuckles, or Scott Storch yet.
I own all of this stuff unless it's labeled 'NEEDED'. If you have an item that I need please sell it to me .
Do NOT copy and paste this list and put it on your page. It took me a long time to compile this list.
Feel free to email me at tom@tomsfiles.com.
