More on cleaning records

Use the cloth and alcohol to clean vinyl and covers. Be careful not to wet the labels on the inner circle of the records. While its fine to clean plastic laminated covers, be careful with alcohol on paper covers.

I always replace plastic covers and paper inner sleeves. They look great afterwards.

Run the lighter quickly over sticky price labels, but be careful not to burn. The heat loosens the sticky gum and makes it easier to remove price tags. Why do some stores put really sticky price tags which are really difficult to remove.

Alcohol removes most dirt and stains. Its better than the bottles of cd and record cleaner liquids.

Makes records look likw new before putting them with your collection.

The Roots of Paul McCartney free CD with Mojo

This month there's a freebie CD of McCartney's influences with Mojo magazine. Its very well packaged although like most of these free CDs I rarely listen. In fact my CD player has been broken for about 3 years. I either listen to vinyl or mp3s. I have three towers of CDs which I never seem to use. If I can't find a record on vinyl I usually just download it, cause I have no
interest in the CD. ....

Discos Castello have NEW vinyl section

Castello, carrer Tallers, Barcelona. Seeing as no one is selling many CDs everyone is getting into all sorts of merchandise, t-shirts, books etc, and there are many new vinyl sections. Castello closed their Overstocks store which had their vinyl but have now opened a revitalised section in their othrr store, which before was CD only.
