Just because no-one else has complained doesn't mean that you shouldn't be dealt with as an individual. You should send it back and demand a refund or a playable copy. Kev Roberts is on this forum, I'm sure he will sort it out for you if you ask him. He should also give his staff a bollocking because that is not good customer service :graynone:

Got to say that I bought something off Goldsoul and they sent me the wrong item.

Rang up and it was no problem. They sorted it out by return of post.

Apparently he looked a bit smug so you asked for your money back.

I never, but I know Dr Pickles bought a copy of "Jeanette" and it was off center..

He bought it off Sean "I'm the only gay in the village" Chapman, so wasn't a problem.

from anyone also advised me to find some where else to buy my records spoke to at least 3 major northern soul record dealers who had the following problems

Moonlight Music Laure Green Intro missing at the begining reject

Marie Knight Lie so well/ thats no way Lables on the wrong sides reject

Compared to what . more like compared to who the hell is singing this . cos it aint

Mr Floods party WHO IS IT ??? reject

The Game is Over - Totally unplayable reject

You wont say nothing - tamila lewis this copy dosnt say anything unless you put the stereo up have way then theres no bass reject

heart trouble The parliments unplayable badly warped reject

there are more ive had lots of emails it is clear that Beckey at gold soul Knew all about these problems and still continued to send reject s to customers I notice they are still trying to sell Wade flemons on Ebay i feel people have a right to know

what has been going on . one major record dealer complained that he was sent Boot legged Cd s

Here is a email from a dealer who returned goods long before i purchased mine

so some one is telling PORKY PIES

Hello Paul

Thanks for your email.

Your friend is absolutely right!

There are faulty copies of this record in circulation.

I have some left from the very first batch DO play fine.

I did re-order the record as my stock was getting low, and all the ones from the second batch I ordered had the 'Jeanette' side pressed off centre, so they had to be returned.

This was an absolute nightmare for me, as I had already sold some, and had to trace and contact all the customers, to make sure their copies played OK. I had to refund about 5 or 6 customers, and 'play test' every remainig copiy of the record.

I pre-play every copy of Jeanette that I send out now, to make sure it's OK.

Once my stock is 'sold out' on this record, I will not be ordering any more, just incase I end up with faulty discs again. Such a shame for such a fantastic record.

I can assure you that if you buy a copy of the record from me, it will play correctly.

Thanks again for your email.

Soulful Regards

Do you think they should be reported to the trading standerd ? PJ whistling.gif

I know somebody who's had a letter off Sony after he complained direct to them in regard of his feelings that UK distributors were bootlegging stuff - however, its so far down the food chain f*** all will ever come of it

I'm not quite sure where to start with regards to this topic, anyway here goes.

Before joining Soul Source last year I mainly purchased boots and re-issues, since joining I now mainly purchase originals (cheap originals!). After asking for recommendations on here, I've probably got a more varied collection than I probably would have had. I imagine I would have carried on buying re-issue after boot after re-issue and I wouldn't have records such as the following (if not for this forum or the people on it):

Juanita Williams - Baby Boy - Golden World

Billy Butler - Come Over To My Side - Brunswick

Mary Wells - You Keep Me In Suspense - Atco

Lorraine Rudolph - Keep Coming Back For More - Jetstream

The Precisions - Instant Heartbreak - Drew

The Five Stairsteps - Change Of Pace - Windy C

Jimmy Norman - This I Beg Of You - Samar

Chuck Jackson - I Only Get This Feeling - ABC

Majestic - Send My Baby Back To Me - Equator

The Avons - Since I Met You Baby - Excello

Syl Johnson - Try Me - Twilight

The Accents - New Girl - M-Pac

Not one of the above records cost me more than £20, The Precisions only cost a tenner including postage from the US. I have only ever paid £40 or more for a record twice, the normal amount I would spend on a single is about £10 - £15. Some dealers charge you a tenner for a boot, so now I tend to look around for the cheaper originals. I'm not a collector in the same sense as people who pay hundreds or thousands of pounds for a single, but then I'm not trying to break into the field of DJing either. So therefore I feel that I don't need to buy the latest boot of the recent top sound.

If there was a track that I wanted badly enough on vinyl, then yes I would get a boot if this was the only way I could afford it (infact, I actually purchased two a couple of months back). The only thing is that I don't seem to want them as badly as I did in the past. If I was to get one that didn't play then I think I wouldn't buy any again.

Does this make sense or am I talking absolute b*ll**ks? whistling.gif

Soulfox,

The sale of goods act applies in so much any item sold must be fit for purpose. If it will not play or has any defect, you have the right to your money back, you do not have to accept a replacement, you can if you want, but it is your choice.

Trading standards will only act on persistant offenders, your only recourse should the vendor not refund or replace is through the small claims court.

This is not true, twice Trading Standards have made preliminary phone calls on my behalf after filling in the forms on their website.

Was that Wolverhampton Pete?

I have made complaints about a large DIY store, and a major energy supplier to be told that they would put it on file, but would only act if they received multiple complaints.

They were however helpful when telephoned.

One in Stoke, one in Scotland (can't remember name of the place, sorry).

Also way back, I complained about a bloke who sold me a cd of Mary Wells (this is when hardly anyone had cd's) and they were all 80's recordings, he refused to replace it, I complained, trading standards went down there, he rang me up and told me to get lost, I said I'd burn his stall down, it was a messy affair ph34r.gif

For what it's worth there's no national Trading Standards as such - it's the responsiblility of local councils and therefore varies area by area.

I had a copy of Patti & the emblems from them the audio at the begining was

appauling I phoned them and was told to send it back rechorded delivery as proof

but was told they wouldnt refund my postage which means I would be £1.50 postage plust 28p phone cost out of pocket as a result of there inferior vinyl

I was also told nobody else has complaind .

also they have a list of records that a never in stock

Maybe we all should bring these shite records to prestatyn and see if kev Roberts

I think this has driffted from the original piont which was the fact that Kev roberts

Is ripping people off with crap vinyl and conterfiet compact discs that are not even

worth the postage .

Yet he makes no attempt to reply to any message by phone or on here

I have had legal advise and I can persue a claim agaist him for the cost of replacement records in good condition that are available be they pressings or originals

was in LA last week where I found two boxes of UK origin 're-issues' going for $6 each !! Neeedless to say, I bought a few huh.gif

Have had one bad copy of MVPs, which Pete kindly refunded - I have since found the original.

What I can never fathom is how certain pressings can be of such poor audio quality when supposedly the original was used in the process.

I couldn't believe it when I heard that MVP's, I told anyone I'd sold one to to send it back. Actually I still have the rejects, I should have done something about that. The MVP's obviously had a mastering fault but I was told that the original recording was perfect so it must have happened at the pressing plant. The Julian Covey's were all off centre as well.

Take your point in that an original will be pressed properly. However you still never know what your gonna get. Bought a couple of Roy Hamilton pieces last year £100+ each, both had clicks, what can you do?

By the way have an awful off centre Cannibal & the Headhunters - Land of 1000 dances - RAMPART. Reissue - avoid at all costs!
