A-side has a strange defect that causes the needle to hang on the same groove for the first ¼” of the record. I can’t see any reason for this to happen, but it does on my machine. It’s similar to a tight warp that bounce the needle back to the previous groove, but I do not detect any warp or abnormal needle movement, plus there is no problem on the B-side. It begins to play fine right before the vocals come in – and through the rest of the record. A fair amount of wear & some graying grooves, but plays OK otherwise.
