Re: Poor instructions
"I have a copy of Tommy by the Who, which was a two LP set, which had sides 1 and 4 on one disk, and 2 and 3 on the other."
About 20 years ago I acquired a Sharp record player from a charity shop in order to transcribe an elderly neighbour's vinyl records to CD for her convenience. It was unusual in that the record was placed in a retracting horizontal drawer like a CD player. The head was on a linear bar rather than a conventional pivoting arm.
Mine had two heads, one for each side, but Sharp had other models with another solution using only one head.
