Disappointing State of Vinyl Records
on 15 April 2016
Bought this as I only have this album on cassette and wanted it on vinyl for ages and as it is a 180g Audiophile Quality Vinyl I went for it. However, I was very disappointed with the fact that the records are in paper sleeves, rather than a poly-lined sleeves, which leads to scratching etc. On opening, both records were extremely dusty and static with what seems a white powder all over them. There are also scuff marks and small scratches visible. When playing, after cleaning off the dust, both records are very noisy with lots of crackle and noise when playing, especially in quite passages and between tracks. You can hear these throughout 'Why Worry', very noisy indeed. I'm very disappointed that a so called 'Audiophile Quality' record can be sold in such a state and I would expect better sleeves that protect rather than scratch the vinyl records.
