Absolute Top Notch !!

Strangely enough I was just about to get in touch with Sister Ray to thank all concerned with my purchase. They are surely the yard-stick that all record suppliers should aspire to: my record was well packaged and promptly received, their communication channel advising changes to delivery date were efficient and most welcome. The personal touch of a thank you note and complimentary beer mats included with my LP was a nice surprise snd much appreciated. Will definitely use Sister Ray again online (& always pop in store when in London), and recommend whole heartedly to others. Thank you and good health to all.
