Back in the 70s, when these thinner records came out, we noticed you could wobble them like a wobble board. My friend used to call them "Rolf Harris records"! (For those who know Rolf Harris, you will understand!)
I remember RCA records (Australian pressings) were the first to get thinner, but they still had good sound quality.
