Bye bye MP3: You sucked the life out of music. But vinyl is just as warped

Yes, I used to buy special polysomething liners for the inner sleeves. Some of my friends insisted (for some time, anyway) on playing their records "wet"; basically you'd mount another arm with a sponge that would flood the groove with water that had it's surface tension reduced by a "special additive", i.e. surfactant, i.e. liquid soap. One of my friends even had some sort of washing machine.

Anyway, I've got some records second hand, stuff that you can't get on CD or as a file, which are extremely dirty; I'm considering to give this a try: Clean old records with wood glue.

Oh, and before I forget: TDK SA-90. Still got boxes of those on the shelf, each with two record albums recorded on it.
