New vinyl ..still need to clean?

Post by Arno P » 08 Nov 2018 19:55

Old question...but it arises when I was playing the absolute great reissue of Holly Cole's Temptation (AP). Great recording, pressing, mastering etc...but some background noise...so anyone got similar experience or even with this LP in particular and still cleans brand new LP's (or the Holly one)?

I clean all incoming vinyl, whether new or used. New stuff seems to always be full of static and bits of paper from the cheap paper sleeves they come in, wet cleaning removes both.

Reminds me of my dentist: Should I floss between all teeth? Answer: Only between the ones you want to keep. :shock:

Since you know it's an "old question" then I expect you've seen some answers. Do it or don't do it as you like.

It looks like your real question is about "Holly Cole's Temptation (AP)".
