As suggested clean and clean - I use a modified Okki Nokki and it is amazing what cr*p lurks on records.

I have saved a few LPs this way, after a few plays the noise can often drop off significantly, although a few do sound worse. Can't win em all.


Hi guys - thanks for all this useful advice - it seems that all may not be lost. I will try all of your suggestions.
The problem is in playing the opening track on side 1. The stylus will not track and jumps groves; the jumping does not cause my stylus to skate (thank goodness!) just skip a few bars of music. This happens for about 40-seconds-worth of the opening.

I am sure you will all be familiar with the record --!
The record in question dates from the mid '60s and is Rafael Fruhbeck de Burgos conducting the New Philharmonia Orchestra and Chorus in performance of Carl Orff Carmina Burana, sung in German and Latin on the Angel label, number S.36333. It was recorded in England but manufactured in Canada - (possible an import?) into UK.

Again, thanks for all you suggestions; now, where is that magnifying glass?
Cheers, Gordon
