..................................The proper and old school way to treat your
......................

Always handle the record by its edges, or by one edge and the center, touching only the label. Never touch the playing surface (or grooves) of the record
Buckle the record jacket when removing or replacing the record by pressing the jacket against you. This will help guard against possible scratches.
Before playing the record, wipe it lightly with a soft, slightly damp cloth. This helps remove the dust which collects on the record because of static electricity.
Store record albums vertically, store single records (45's) either on the edge of the shelf or flat in stacks.
Careful use of your records will ensure a longer life for them,
and a greater enjoyment of their many riches.
