AAA Hughes Promo Record Store is a new online shop specialising in rare, collectible and hard to find British and Irish promotional CDs.
These are sorted by decade and artists are grouped in the period which they are most closely associated (even if the album was produced at a later date). However where a musician/band has changed name (even if the line up remains the same) they may appear in more than one decade. For example Prince's early material would be found in the 80s (as this is when he had the most commercial/critical success). When he was known as [symbol/the artist formerly know as Prince] would be filed in the 90s. Now that he has reverted back to being called Prince this is grouped in the Noughties/New Music!!!
The idea for this store came about when an American customer (who bought a book from me through a different website) asked if I could obtain a Peter Rabbit promo audio-book CD (which was only released in the UK). I managed to track it down and realised that there might be a niche for promo discs as they are not generally available through the major online retailers such as Amazon.
AAA Hughes aims to maintain the highest standards:
1. Supplying rare promo CDs worldwide – These items are hard-to-find in the UK and perhaps impossible to find elsewhere.
2. Offering simple and fair pricing – Some internet stores try to trick us by adding hidden costs at the final stage of the checkout. This is not only frustrating, but dishonest. As a reaction against this we have tried to offer the fairest, most transparent pricing structure.
3. Delivering excellent customer service – Having had some awful experiences buying online, we were keen to offer the kind of (excellent) service we expect ourselves. Nevertheless we are always looking to improve your customer experience, so please do not hesitate to contact us with any suggestions…
We will be constantly adding new lines to our store so please feel free to bookmark us.
