Reviews and Commentaries for the Music of Bob Dylan

One of our good customers had this to say about some Hot Stampers he purchased recently:

Hey Tom, 

I just got my Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan Super Hot Stamper. This may be the best record I have bought from you. Magical. I almost cried when I heard Girl From North Country. How you could give Side 1 only an A+ is shocking and a real testament to how hard you judge, but I think it was a Double Plus for sure. Side two blew me away. You guys are the best, I love this record.

I have to say I have totally changed my record collecting since I discovered your site. It’s not about quantity, it’s about quality. Otherwise it might as well be streamed.

I think you’re the only people that really understand.



Thanks for your letter!
