    This is awesome! How did you preserve it? We used to take two plays of the album of great interest to avoid static build up. The first was to clean out any "dirt" from the original pressing. The second to put onto tape. Then the vinyl was put away for archival purposes.

    What did you do?

    I have an Australian SQ which I believe is quite different from the UK. Meaning to archive this very soon.

    I simply kept it clean and stored it rice paper inner sleeves and outer sleeves that were supposed to let the cardboard covers "breathe" that I had purchased from MFSL when they made them available and stored them in an environmentally controled setting.

    It was one of the albums that didn't get damaged by a flood we had in our basement in 2002. That one time I had to put my LP collection in the basement due to the fact that we were having some work done in the room that I usually kept them in. It was only in the basement for two weeks on top of shelves and old furniture.

    My little brother had decided he wanted to restore the old furniture and placed the crates of LPs setting on the furniture on the floor never bothering to place it back on top of something off the floor and it just so happened we had a unusually bad storm that lasted a couple days that caused the basement to flood out thus getting about about a thousand LPs moist in some degree or another. Thus far I've been able to restore about 500 LPs and had to ditch about 250 as they were beyond repair. I'm still working or the rest which I can tell you is a grueling, dirty, moldy task. :(

    Steve (Shack) turned me on to Vinyl-Zyme Gold about four years ago which has been a life saver for the moldy LPs. I now use it regularly when prepping used LPs.

    I took meticulous care of my LPs even as a teenager. BTW I played that copy of Crime of the Century for quite a few friends here, mostly notably Billy (LibertyC) and he was floored at the signal quality and condition of the LP. There is an occasional tick or pop here and there but overall, especially taking into consideration the archaic cleaning methods I had to use at the time, it is in great shape.

    Beyond Cool, Hearingimpared.

    Crime of the Century is one of my faves, so are many of the others LPs/CDs listed by others as well. I could have well posted many of the LPs that have been mentioned by the folk in this thread in my OP. Beyond the fondness of and interest in Polk speakers, it is evident that many of us within this forum has a commonality of the same music most greatly enjoyed!

    Many thought Pearl Jam's No Code in the mid-1990s was mostly bad. I thought it was mostly great. I still like it and the album art is just sweet.

    I do want to hear the vinyl side of it as I always thought the Cd leaned toward the bright side. Of course most listening at first was on a Walkman with bargain earphones. I enjoyed the songs as they actually had a story to them.
    Glad to hear someone else enjoyed it.
