    my order of LK just arrived but the vinyl came broken in a small part on the side. i've tried playing it and the side with vocals works nice except that everytime the needle passes the broken part it does a small annoying noise

    is this fixable? i've spoken with the seller from discogs and i am awaiting reply

    I got one snapped through the post once, Matrix vs Goldtrix - Trippin, worth about £10. The guy said he'd chase it up but I never heard anything since. I hope it works out for you mate :)
