  • Flattened edge of record

    Curious title, eh?

    I have a few boxes of copies of an LP I made with a band in the late 80s, the return lot from the distributor. They haven't been stored in optimal conditions through the years.
    When I pulled out a few yesterday, I noticed that the edge of the record was slightly flattened at one place. About 1 cm around the edge, and only 1mm or so. Run-in groove is not affected luckily, but it's visible when you spin the record.
    I pulled a few from another box which seemed OK. One difference I could see was that the flattened records had the kind of inner sleeves with a small rounded section cut off at one of the sides at the opening, and the flattening seemed to match that. The ones that were not flattened had an inner sleeve with straight edges.

    Just curious to what has happened. My guess would be pressure combined with some heat, but the particular box actually had the records lying flat which made me fear warp, but no.

                Indie-ish pop, badly produced by owner of local cultish label on which it was released.
                500 copies were pressed, I think 2/3 were returned from distributor. Me and the guitarist took half each, but I think his lot went to recycling years ago.
                There is some interest for it, so I'm not outing it yet :-)

                  Picked up some copies from another box and most had the same flattened edge. Starting to think now it's a production defect.
                  Something gone wrong when the excess vinyl is trimmed off.

                              In the offices of the Malmo police Kurt Wallander is called in to speak to his superior officer

                              Kurt, please sit down.

                              K.W. What's this about?

                              Kurt, you've worked a flattened record case before haven't you?

                              K.W. (looking serious all of a sudden) You know I have

                              Yes, 1n 96; just before your breakdown. We think there's another flattened record incident.

                              K.W. What sort of size is it

                              One Millimetre

                              K.W. (Incredulously) One millimetre! That's too big! You know it was point five of a millimetre that tipped me over the edge!

                              Kurt, calm down. Think of Jussi (cut to scene of Kurt's dog Jussi defecating on the beach)

                              K.W. No way, give it to Lund, or those idiots over at Borgen!

                              Kurt, they're both in Denmark.

                              K.W. I don't give a shit! Tell Lund there's a new jumper for her if she sorts the case. He gets up and leaves, slamming the door on the way out
