PLEASE READ BEFORE PLAYING THIS RECORD!
Please note that this lathe embossed record was made one-at-a-time, in real-time, by a real person, from plexiglass using an experimental process and 70-year-old machines. It is NOT a pressed record and may have slightly more surface noise or an occasional light distortion in some frequencies, and will sound somewhat different than the original master. The volume will also be a little lower than a modern “post-loudness-war record, so pump up the volume. It won’t be audiophile, but it ought to sound pretty good considering the circumstances of its birth. It might also require tonearm and anti-skate adjustment in order to track correctly due to the hard plastic having slightly shallower grooves than a traditional record. If it sounds over distorted, lift the needle and drop it again (possibly several times), or gently tap the front of your turntable, in case the needle gets caught on the side of the groove or between the grooves.

DO NOT USE AUTOMATIC START ON YOUR PLAYER!
If the center hole is too tight for your spindle, gently try and push it down over the spindle close to the hole, do not try and push down from the outside of the record. These records are lighter may need to be a little tight on the spidle. If it is still too tight, gently use one arm of a pair of scissors to widen the hole.
These records will NOT degrade or harm your needle or cartridge.
