I've had two soul packs off Ian both have been fantastic. His description on Facebook is spot on it is a very good cross section of soul styles and they quality ranges from good to mint but all I have had have been playable and those that came out looking rough were easily cleaned. There were one or two in the first pack that I already had or didn't like but it was a small percentage and it is a punt. BUT a punt at a quid a record that if necessary can be sold on later even at a car boot for a pound you ain't lost. I was sceptical at first as it is a large amount of money to shell out but my worries WERE unfounded and I got some brilliant records.
