"I received my box today and was completely thrilled! Such a great selection, love the quality of the information included in the box and the postcards are a great touch. Have already recommend to friends!"
"Good selection of vinyl, all new and packaged well. The art cards received are nice doubling up as post cards on the back. Value for money is tip top too and would recommend as a means of finding new music and broadening your collection."
