Well, it's a new needle, and I washed the record with mild soap - but the record has been well-used. It's Sandy Paton's Elektra album, recorded 50 years ago when he was thirty years old.
Sandy hated the record, and I can see why. He sings in a Scottish brogue and in the high registers of his voice - doesn't sound at all like the Sandy I knew. The musicianship on the album is excellent, but he sounds like he's trying to be somebody he's not.
