I've had a lot of luck with Goo-Gone on labels, but haven't tried it on a record's surface yet.

They are some nice dance band sides from the 20s on Cameo, Harmony, etc. The tape comes off but leaves behind the glue that is not water soluble.  So what will clean this?  Last time this came up there were answers of chemicals that are pretty nasty.  Let's stay away from those.  Any simple remedies of relatively non-toxic household items or easily obtainable products that don't destroy the 78?
