never noticed. I play mono records in true mono and in mono it is hardly
noticeable, which may also explain why the producers didn't spot it.
I probably never would have noticed it as anything other than a surprisingly
high surface noise level in places if I hadn't been prompted. Playing in
stereo does of course make it obvious that the noises are extraneous and
makes them very irritating.
Now I have noticed I think I'll be hanging on to those Swaggie LPs!
