Yes it is......I will research another brand because it is not available here. There are plenty of brands, also a lot of people mix their own brew.

That was a silly question, it's obviously the liquid that removes the static, not the vacuum cleaning Wacko Damn, that is one expensive solution Shocked The link made me laugh, wash*t LOL

^ It does Sam...the solution they sent me also eliminates static. Almost any liquid solution will help with static, in my summer it is dry (little humidity) so static is an issue. I keep a small bowl of water close to my TT to help keep moisture in the air.
Here is the Pro-ject solution page

That release agent is what you are seeing as you pull the new vinyl out of the sleeve....It needs to be cleaned off as best you can.
I never noticed anything like that Ermm

The only thing I hear is an occasional tick from the album being old but most of them are gone now.

I'm happy....better sound improvement! Only 599 to go LOL
That's awesome Thumbs Up You'll want to clean them all up now Big smile Does it also remove static?

My current cleaning solution is great but it sure takes a long time to dry. It's much better than spraying though. I used the machine the other day to clean my copy of Elektriktus' Electronic Mind Waves, which I was really unhappy with, and it did a much better job than the other solution. It still has pops and distortions in a few places but it no longer has a muffled sound and it's much easier to listen to it now. How could a brand new record be so dirty? Wacko

So I am breaking down and getting a vinyl record vacuum cleaning machine. Been looking at them for awhile but they are pricey, I had zero desire to spend $650 on a VPI machine, you can get them used or a demo for like $500...but still.
I clean records using a spray solution and then wiping, also use the Discwasher brush which does a decent job....The problem is wiping just pushed the dirt around and actually can push it further into the grooves, some comes off but not all. I don't buy a lot of used but when I do it can be tough to clean them well.

Pro-Ject came out with a nice machine this year, well priced and the reviews are good. It has what I need..
Motor to spin the record
Powerful vacuum
Storage tank for the used solution
Easy disposal of solution, and best part is the motor goes in both directions, really helps to give you a dry record when done.

I heard a demo of some records cleaned by a machine once and it was really like night and day. Usually ticks, pops, clicks is simply microscopic dirt that is sitting in the groove and makes the noise when your stylus runs over the dirt, imagine the sound when you remove this debris from the groove, also a super clean record will add time to your stylus wear, getting an extra 200 hours is money in your pocket!

Here is the link for the cleaner I ordered, should have it by Friday, I paid less than $400 delvd.

I HATE Meatloaf. Even if Todd R and Utopia played on Bat Out Of Hell. Pompous, OTT commercial claptrap that goes on waaaay too long.

I don't have that compilation, does it include any track that isn't on Exposed?

Here is the live side :

        ^ Nice Sam!! I have been surprised by some of these obscure bands being reissued on vinyl declaring from original master tapes. Makes sense to me as I suspect most only were released once and the tape is in very good condition. The dynamics captured on tape is pretty amazing from a studio performance and when it is mixed and mastered with care can be a thrilling experience to listen to for the consumer, and vinyl for us.

        This is where I had always hoped digital would get to by now.....still a work in progress.

        I'm quite excited about this one, the first vinyl reissue of Quarteto 1111's Psych Folk self-titled debut, released in 1970. It's a limited audiophile edition, an analog remaster from the original master tape and pressed by Pallas. It also includes a booklet with the story of the band and this album and also about the remastering and lacquer cutting. I only knew the murky CD edition so I was really surprised by the clarity of it. I'm still annoyed by the silly stereo effects though, I guess it was cool back then LOL

        MS 2072 was the number of the original American release (with brown Reprise label).

        The big mistake here is probably the Ange album which is one of their worst according to Progarchives ratings LOL

        I can only guess the vinyl was put in a different sleeve. MS2072 is Reprise Records and CHR is Chrysalis Records......Can you post a picture of the record label.
