Customer Testimonials

  • "I am amazed at the swift response from Past Perfect. Thank you for being so efficient with your service, I only wish some of the larger firms would be so fast and efficient. I shall certainly recommend you to all my friends"  Mr E, The Wirral

    "Several years ago I bought the Sophistication 3 CD through a catalog and thought it was superb.   I didn't buy the first two CDs in the series and had been trying to find them ever since.  I don't know what took me so long to find your website but I finally did!!  Not only did I find the first two Sophistication CDs but so many other wonderful choices.  I was so pleasantly surprised to find my order in my mailbox on a Thursday after having placed my order on a Sunday.  All five of the CDs I ordered are wonderful beyond words!! I know I'll be placing more orders in the future.  Thank you for making this great sounding music available to the world!!  "  Ms CR, USA
