Just went to play my copy of Chris Bell’s I Am The Cosmos (original Car 7” from 1978) only to discover to my horror it has cracked! Crack runs from edge of vinyl to centre label making record unplayable.
I am devastated as I bought it in 1981. Record has always been carefully stored upright and has avoided direct sunlight, humidity etc
Has anyone else ever heard of such a thing?
This is probably my favourite ever record and currently goes for $500 so a direct replacement is out of the question
What on Earth has happened here?
