it's probably not that. it seems unlikely. but it's worth a try.
i have had that with my cd player, that's why i thought of it. it will play everything fine, but then with one specific cd, it will always skip at the same place. if i play that cd in another cd player - an old one that will skip on everything with a bit of a scratch, really - it plays fine.
maybe your vinyl is really broken. some sort of production error. and maybe you got it replaced with a copy that was pressed just before or after your original copy, which is why the same error is present.
where did you buy it? any chance they have a record player there? if they do have a record player, bring your copy and play it to them. if the pops are gone, your record player is to blame. if the pops are still there, they can't refuse you another replacement. (keep testing the copies they give you on their record player until it's fine.)
this is a fairly expensive record. you shouldn't settle for a copy with pops.
Apparently I can't PM you. Lol. So, Ill just post what I was about to send you here.
I have appreciated your more sensible input into the SP-related forums as of late. I tend to avoid dramatic involvement in the gen boards, but word is you have quite the reputation out there. ;)/>
Anyway, it's been surprisingly refreshing to see you interact with fans and helping them out with their vinyl issues, looking for info on the reissues, etc.
So, ya, thanks for that.
