Today we're thinking about poorly mastered records. I quit ripping this title halfway through. In order to fit a million songs on something like this Superstars of the '70s 4xLP, they cut the grooves really narrow (and shallow as a natural consequence, I think). So every little paper scuff seemed to be making these records skip. Ugh. K-Tel records are pressed the same way, but they've been a little more resilient in my experience. Guess Warner Special Products didn't know how to turn out quality junk. Ah well.
