This store is one of the biggest mail order specialist vinyl shops avaliable to DJs to date. There is a huge selection of vinyl, and an ever expanding product range. However it is based in Birmingham, and I am based down sounth, near Dartford, so i have never actually set foot inside the store myself. However this review is based on my online experiences. Basically you can normally find what you wnat, from new to old, but the hard-to-find vinyl is always out of stock, just like everywhere else. However this website offers a wish list (where you can order songs), and a wait list (where you wait in a queue, and as that vinyl comes the person at the front of the queue has 'first dibs' on it -supposedly). This store has always given me good delivery, well packaged vinyl and good feedback on my order status etc. I have ordered a record box from there, and it arrived damaged. However they provided me with a full refund & extra to cover the cost of me posting it back to them. This website i feel is expensive though. vinyl i can get in HMV for £5 its up-there for £6 plus a minimum of £1.50 postage and packaging. Therefore I really only use it as a price comparison website , unless there is a piece i simply cant get anywhere else. Craig
Hi Craig, I was contemplating using this website to get a gift for my other half- you know those little needles which are vans which can play the record through a tiny speaker on the back? I heard that you can get it from here HTFR. Good review, as I am always skeptical of online shops, I think you gave a fair review of what is all about. Have you heard of Boom Kats ( I think that thats how its spelt)- thats quite good. Emma :-)

I was hoping it might be a second hand place too! Craig: if you answer people it's a good idea to put it in their guestbook as they probably won't know otherwise.

Yeah, you could email me a list of it (firstname.lastname@example.org) and ill see if i want to buy any of it, or best bet to sell it on eBay, local paper, or even go to a boot fair or some record stores would purchase them if they r good
