If that is true, then a boon too mankind. Lots of old LP’s as new again. I will try it.

Wow what a difference!

Also, I wonder if you put the glue disc on the turntable and play it, will you hear the music BACKWARDS???

Just turn it upside down Joe…. LOL.. and, Randy…’d you find out about this trick.. Did u try to play the glue?? I’ll bet it would play backwards… hahahahaha. That made a significant improvement to how it sounded for sure….. but, that was a lotta glue too.

Clever thinking! I never heard of anything like that before! But I do know that latex paint peels off my plastic Roller Paint Tray just like that when it dries. I guess somethings just don’t stick to vinyl or plastic.

That’s an outrageously cool idea!
Don’t know if I’d try it on the old Victrola at 78 rpm though… :)

Hmmmm…..Bet super glue wouldn’t work.
I got no LPs sadly. Would it work on CDs? (-:

I’d sure want to make sure is fully dried. I can’t imagine trying to get glue residue off the needle itself.

I have a Sony turntable with USB, connects direct to my computer. My earlier turntable came with incredible software for eliminating clicks and pops, same as the Sony. It’s the software that revived the vintage vinyl market; I can now buy an LP in less than stellar condition, and expect to hear it as if it was new.

wish I knew about the glue trick years ago! Sticky Fingers by the Rolling Stones comes to mind.
