Take Care Of Your Records


Here's another installment in my series of scans about how to take care of your records, this time from Columbia Records. This is a scan of an inner sleeve that was actually found inside an RCA Victor LP from 1959, so that doesn't help me date it much. However, the flip side of the sleeve says something about celebrating their 10th anniversary, so that would put the date at around 1911. Hmmm, that can't be right. Perhaps they mean the 10th anniversary of the LP album? Ah, that looks better. Now the date comes out to around 1958. Anyhow, the helpful steps we can all learn from the info above are: Always handle the record by its edges, Always buckle the record jacket, Wipe the record lightly and Store record albums vertically. It also says to check the needle for wear at your Columbia Dealer. I'm going to carry my needle down to Specs and see if they can check it for me.
