        The picture and description in the catalog showed retro labels such as Motown, Steve miller band etc....which my 22 year old would have loved, but she got Beethoven etc...all six from that era and most that I had never even heard of. We were both disappointed.

            These records are way too obscure. I have a wide range of music interest and I can barely recognize these artists and songs.

            I was hoping to use these as gifts but that won't happen. I don't want to give away junk.

            Is there a reason why no popular records are used? Copyright infrigement?

            Can you at least offer selections in periods or genre?

            I'd return them but it's not worth paying the postage. May be I can create some record labels to put on top of them so I can use the magnet.

              This set was the highlight of a music-themed gift basket that I put together for a friend. She loved them! The artist selection was varied, as were the colors of the labels. A very cool product!

                      Love Uncommon Goods but this product doesn't cut it. Didn't expect to know every song sent, but at least one would have been nice. Was going to give to my son who loves both old and new music, but he would never have heard of any of these songs. Very disappointed. Nice idea, but you need some more popular songs represented!!

                        We got a fun assortment of 33 1/3 rpm record magnets. The label appears on both sides, just like they were cut right from an LP. A very impressive gift, they even came in a cool Uncommon Goods bag!

                        I gave this as a gift to my boyfriend and he loves it. He is a big music person and loved the random selection he received. The magnets are very strong as well, didn't think so by the picture although very strong.

                        Purchased these for a friend who is a big music lover. He thought they were great, and loved that they were made from original records. It was also nice that they were made from records of well-known artists. Definitely a great gift!
