By the way, I used HomeBase own-brand PVA Adhesive. I've known of the technique for a while, but only recently tried it. It made quite a difference to the Richie Havens album.

I'm intrigued. I might give it a go sometime.

You need to leave it for a long time, to make sure it is completely dry. 24 hours, to be on the safe side.

I've read about PVA to clean records but have never tried it. Sounds a bit risky to me can you guarantee all of the glue out of the grooves any that gets onto your needle could knack it. I use a cleaner from a dealer on e bay £10 a bottle and clean my records with a soft small paint pad from B&Q. They do one that is the perfect fit for 12inch and LP records.

That was why I hesitated and did a bit of reading before taking the plunge. The overwhelming majority have had no problems. I wouldn't use the method for any but the absolute worst-condition records, though.
