i bought a bob dylan record from a garage sale and i love it so much. i've been listening to it for hours everyday. but its badly beaten up. it does the repeating thing 3 seperate times. there is a lot of background static. and more skips than i can count. its not dusty looking and the needle on my record player is fairly new and also dust free. so my question is...
how does one clean a record?
its a vinyl record, not a cd. i've never cleaned any of my other old records because they have never had such poor sound quality.
what sort of cloth should i use, is there a special direction i should wipe the cloth? should i even use a cloth? is there any type of liquid cleaner i could use?
