Greetings from Japan. Today I received the package from you. Thanks! Your service is the best in the world.

I am an avid record collector living in the USA. I particularly enjoy English classic rock, the result of having spent 10+ years in London as a youngster in the 60s. Beatles, Stones, Jethro Tull, Traffic, The Who, Ten years After ... the list goes on and on. Over the past 2 years, I have purchased online 100+ records from Sweet Memories, and last year visited their shop. I occasionally buy from eBay and other UK vinyl websites, but Sweet Memories is by far my preferred store. Service is prompt and friendly; quality of their records is consistently excellent and gradings are very accurate. You can depend on Nick and his staff at Sweet Memories.

I have honestly never come across a better record dealer. I have bought many records from them over the years and they have always been in superb condition, clean and well packaged.

I turned to Sweet Memories to fill the gaps in my 70's record collection. I have to say that service has always been prompt and most records and sleeves are in excellent condition considering some are nearly 40 years old!Certainly what I like is the fact that each record comes ready cleaned and in the best condition possible. I have bought from other sources that don't provide this service and you can tell. So in that respect I guess a pound or two extra is worth it. You get what you pay for and I think that generally prices are very competitive. So as far as I'm concerned Sweet Memories is pretty much the best online record dealers I've come across.

I regularly buy new and second hand records from around the world and Sweet Memories is undoubtedly my preferred vendor. The grading is always accurate and reliable. The price is always fair. The service (cleaning and dispatch) exceptional.

Your products and services are excellent and I hope you continue, i have bought sub-standard products from ebay and the like and I will not buy records from that source again. What you are offering is quality, there must still be a place for that in our society?

I've bought loads of vinyl from sweet memories over the last few years, certainly more than 50 lp's and i've never been let down by them - not once. Wish i could say the same about other traders but sadly not, i've become quite jaded with new vinyl, i've now got quite a number of 180 gm re-releases or recent material and many are warped or just poor sounding, with the exception of the couple of classic records 200gm pressings of Led-zeppelin lp's i've got. Don't know if that quite justifies the 150 quid the pair cost though! sweet memories seem an amazing bargain when you can get the original in mint (and flat) condition for a fraction of the cost. I've never met Nick as im in Scotland and he ain't, but he is definitely a pleasure to do business with by internet, thanks Nick.

Have bought from both the shop and online and have always received a top quality service and superb quality vinyl. The records are professionally cleaned and well packaged, which is important

Id like to add my voice to all those commending your service. Ive always found prices to be reasonable, quality exactly as stated, packing superb and delivery times excellent. Although I havent bought much in the last few months (credit crunch affecting me), I know I'll be back when things improve.

A point that must be kept in mind is that this company does not over-state anything regarding condition, and this is crucial because it allows everyone to have confidence in its judgement. I know that if it is graded "Excellent" then it almost certainly is in that condition. Sweet Memories is working in a narrow area, cleans records properly, packs them well and is thoroughly reliable. If you compare a first rate copy of a record with what you would pay for a hard-to-find 1970s book, with intact dust jacket (not price-clipped) and no marks to the pages, the Sweet Memories prices look even better value. You are paying for a service and a product increasingly rare these days. Appreciate this, and understand the difference between "price" and "value".

Sweet Memories Vinyl Records has never let me down on the quality. The quality I have always found excellent. I have not bought records from you recently but that is not due to poor quality, a too high price or bad service. For the time being you just do not have the few records I am searching on stock. Please keep your business running I will return.

I wanted to thank you for sending the records so promptly and for offering such an excellent service. All the records I have bought from you have been immaculate. Cleaning the record and providing a new inner sleeve and plastic outer sleeve is a very nice touch and shows real concern for supplying quality secondhand LPs. Your business deserves to continue thriving, especially in this harsh economic environment when so many other record shops are going under. I hope to visit the store if I am ever in Portsmouth

I ordered the LPs on Saturday, arrived on Tuesday. Condition of both records and sleeves was exactly as described and they were exactly as described (Excellent). I appreciated the extra care taken, well packaged, new dust sleeves included as well as the originals and plastic covers provided for the sleeves. They were also superb value for the price charged.

Just A few lines to say very many thanks for the service i received. You have time for every customer that walks in your shop helping them to locate a certain item even if you don't have it ! Your stock is amazing and the guys who work with you are very knowledgable and friendly.

My LP turned up today and it's fabulous! The condition is not just excellent, it's outstanding. You Guys Rock! (Australia)

Just to inform you that my latest order has arrived, nicely packaged and in excellent condition. This is the fifth or sixth time I've bought from you, and you've certainly kept up your high standard. Very few sellers on the net compares to you, and no-one beats you.And that record-cleaning machine of yours works wonders. It is simply a joy when a 40 year old record that sounds like it was pressed yesterday!

Once more your service and especially your packing is exceptional, going the extra mile with record cleaning, inner sleeve and poly sleeve is superb! I have been collecting records for over 30 years and you must rate as about the best mail-order outfit for vinyl I have dealt with.

Received my records yesterday. Once again VERY impressed with your swift service and the quality of the records themselves.These albums are from the 60s and early 70s but they sound brand new, not a speck of dust or grease on the surface. Listening to these old vinyl records, its a mystery to me why anyone would prefer CDs.I could probably find cheaper records on the net but no other seller Ive tried can compete with you as regards prompt delivery and consistent quality, and this is really what matters.

I am amazed at the consistent speed and efficiency you show in dealing with orders. I don't have you on favourites - I have a shortcut on my desktop! If I've wanted something not only have you got it but it is in exactly the condition you state and shipped before I've even had time to look forward to it. You achieve in days what a large and ubiquitous Record Dealer Online takes three times as long to achieve and at a fraction of the cost.

Im the italian online buyer who placed an order 10 days ago... The latest Friday 28 March i've received from the postman the sturdy cardboard box along with all the records inside. I really want to thank you because they're MINT and UNPLAYED as i wanted, 'cause i'm a (true...) music collector and i need records in perfect shape! I hope to come back again in the future buying other stuff from you, your service is FANTASTIC and i can't find the words to describe so... Best regards and embraces from Italy!!!

I'm incredibly impressed with the speediness of the delivery, the quality of the product AND the careful way in which it was all packaged...absolutely top-notch. You can count on me for lots of future business...I might even go back to the site today and see what else I can take off your hands!!!

Got My Order Today.Very Impressed With The Packaging.Well Done. Very Impressed With The Mint Condition The Picture Discs Are In. 100% Satisfied. First Impressions Are Always The Lasting Ones.Service Was Outstanding. Keep Up The Good Work. Many Thanks

Just a quick note to say that I received my records today.They are in excellent condition.I am very glad that places like yours exist for us people who still enjoy the pleasures of vinyl recordings.Thank you for the prompt shipment and I know that I will shop with you again in the near future.

For records 25+ years old, I just cannot BELIEVE how pristine they are! Come on, let me in on the secret - you've got a vinyl pressing plant out the back of your shop, right?! Whatever, BIG THANKS once again.

Many thanks for the records - they arrived safely last night, and they're fabulous! I'll be in touch if there's anything else I require. Meantime, thanks for all your efforts in getting these little treasures to me!

The record arrived today. I would never have expected it so fast ! You're good for the Guinness Book Of Records ! ;-) And I must say, the record is in perfect condition. Many thanks, it was a great pleasure dealing with you ! I will recommend you to my friends and will surely come again !

Just like to say how impressed I am with your service. Ordered an All About Eve 12" on Tuesday afternoon via your website and it arrived Thursday morning by recorded delivery very well packaged and in excellent condition, matching your rating system very well. I will certainly be keeping an eye on your website for other items in the future.

I work in Customer Support myself, so I appreciate the value of a happy customer, and you can rest assured that this one is MORE THAN HAPPY with the records you've supplied. Judging from your 'Customer Comments' page, there's really nothing I can add, so I'll just echo others' sentiments that it has been an absolute pleasure to deal with you. I will certainly bear you in mind for future vinyl needs.

I just wanted to let you know that I received my order. Those records are FABULOUS!! Their condition is even better than I had imagined--virtually every single one looks as if it's never been played! I also enjoyed that 1974 Melody Maker you packed the records in. :-) Consider me a loyal customer.

The L.P.'s I ordered from you arrived today. I'd like to thank you for the records.... fantastic service!! The records are great and I was amazed with the quick delivery. Great doing business with you and I certainly will again. Thanks again.

I recently received a couple records from your shop and i have to say, i'm thoroughly impressed. They arrived promptly and in perfect condition. The magazine was a nice touch as well. Thank you very much, and rest assured i will be ordering from you again.

Thank you so much for the vinyl I received today. It was beautifully packaged and arrived in perfect shape, not a corner bent or squashed. The record itself is just as advertised and I am pleased. I have been searching for Ten Wheel Drive's debut album for quite a while and stumbled on to Sweet Memories by accident. "Leave it to the Brits" I say. It was a pleasure doing business with you and won't hesitate to again. I enjoyed the bonus retro music mag Free Gift enclosed. Thanks so much.

I have now ordered this precious item from you.I must thank you for your prompt reply and service.In this day and age it seems that not many companies follow your ethics.Once again "Many Thanks"

Sweet Memories Vinyl Records is half way around the world from me...but they treated me like i was just down the street. I got my record from them in the UK faster than getting one from New York to California this month. Truely "world class" e-business folks!
