The amount of complaining about pressing quality and record flaws in general these days is unbelievable.
Really,considering I must have owned well over 10000 records in my life,I'm surprised I've only ever seen a handful of genuinely flawed records.

Seems like people see a complaint and don't want to be left out.

I think it’s a lot of people who didn’t grow up with vinyl and don’t realise that it is always going to be a bit noisy.

I’ve had two records that were actually flawed, both had labels that were mispressed onto the playable area. Anything else has been damage from bad handling by previous owners.

Reminds me of the Marillion fans group on FB. People posting photos of a tiny crease the post left on their package and demanding replacement items!

there are more shit turntables than bad pressings - trust me i know.

only have a few records where audio is bad due to pressing fault.
in every case label warned buyers in advance there was a problem.

There was an article doing the rounds there over the last couple of weeks about how mastering vinyl has become trickier as there are so many shit record players out there now that can’t handle a lot of records.

Paul Brady lives somewhere near me and I see him from time to time in the shop across the road from me. I’m so going to get him to sign this some day when he’s trying to buy milk.
Wow brilliant! I have his autograph from one of their reunion shows in Vicar st. He seems sound
