While i`m grateful and glad for this ongoing series, i would like to know if anyone else has a scratching/popping sound on certain tracks. On The First British Hit Parade CD, the last 5 tracks (23-27) has this problem. Now i know some of these songs may have been taken directly from vinyl if the master wasn`t found but, i think i know what a vinyl scratchy-poppy noise makes! I actually ordered this CD again from another online outlet and guess what, the same noise on the same tracks. If it`s direct from the source then i`ll have to live with it, i guess. Just annoying though.
