...Yeah, but her face is breathing healthier by having the pores cleaned and cleansed.
I tried it on a $2 copy of 'after the gold rush' years ago.
That $2 still sounds better than the $29 re-issue I bought to replace it with.
I wasnt't afraid to try it, of course.
I have to say, some tend to treat audio as a religion... Stunning.
Having a spirited debate over a technique, process, or practice is all fine and dandy... IF youv'e actually tried, and tested said technique. Otherwise your'e just arguing opinion against experience.
Starts to look silly after a bit.
Can we hear from an expert audiophile who's actually tried it.... and didn't find it effective?
I see two camps here: the folks who have tried it, say it works, and like the results; And the folks who haven't tried it.
---I did not try it, but I'm a firm believer.
* And with your post above you just confirmed my belief.
---Good catch Dan!

I bought an Aynsley Dunbar wlp on Blue Thumb. Looked beautiful, even in bright sunlight. Sounded like bacon and eggs.
I tried the glue method using Tite-bond. Applied it, let it dry until clear. Peeled right off leaving what appeared to be a perfect negative impression of the disc.
If it helped, it was a minor improvement, if any.
Obviously I have no idea if the artifacts I heard are from debris or groove damage. It did come off cleanly and certainly didn't hurt the sound.
I wouldn't try it on decent disc as a matter of course, I just tried it on that one because I really had nothing to lose. I also tried it on an old KING RECORDS disc, the really fragile kind that don't bend. Came off cleanly from that one too, although I'm not really prepared to try it on my Midnighters LP on Federal 548.
As for having any irreplaceable vinyl records, out of my 2000 or so I can only think of one that I have that truly could not be replaced.
