> I was asked to remaster a London Stereo Treasury disc, (purchased on e-bay from UK but I think it was a US pressing), and a small piece of the label had broken off and was pressed into the music area. Obviously this could not be cleaned off or removed in any way and that part of the record couldn't be played. I finally had to play it in segments and then glue them all together to restore the performance.
US London pressings are among the sloppiest I've ever encountered, especially
more recent ones (70s forward). I once saw, in the Golden Oldies bin at Record
Theatre in Buffalo, a Tom Jones 45 on Parrot with TWO large holes, one of them
through most of the label area.
