Ohhh so many good replies .... I just cringe when I hear bad pops and noise. I was spinning my Deep Purple best Of LP and it is very scratchy except for the one song I got it for .... Black Night which is the only MINT track on that record. Got it from a friend who treats his records horribly and blames it on friends doing it at parties he has had over the years.
Ummmm he has hundreds of records and I doubt ONE single record out of 10 is in good shape.
