AliG:You haven't heard the urban legend of "mold release" on new records?
Russell:The major issue that the Gem Dandy has is the universal taboo against the use of tap water in cleaning records.
LOL!!! "Mold release!"????! I was looking at LAST Factory website, they certainly recommend people to clean NEW records. I ordered a few expensive new LPs ($50 each), not sure if I should clean them or not....

I thought I had clean records with my prior regimen, then I added the LAST Power Cleaner in the past year....wow, a nice surprise was even cleaner sounding records. I also use LAST Record Preservative and Stylast.....I really love their stuff.Many years ago I represented Trackmate(tm) in the US (they made record, CD, VHS cleaners...and still do for folks like Radio Shack) and the then-owner Joe Fritsch (who invented the cassette cleaner while an engineer at Allsop) told me the LAST chemicals are first rate...even if their application methods were a little poor. He tried making a deal with the LAST folks back then, but they have always been a bit iconoclast in their methods. Nonetheless, the LAST stuff is great and I've been using them for 20+ years now to good effect John
Barry, The LAST Power Cleaner is a once and done treatment...1x only per record. Subsequent wet cleaning and you need only your everyday fluid of choice.For 'everyday', I've used LAT International's Kleer-Disc stuff with a gallon of distilled water from any Grocery...it works very well, I have zero complaints (and is comparitively cheap vs. many others out there):http://www.latinternational.com/index.php/product/kleer-disk.htmlIf the LAST stuff ever didn't provide, I have a BIG mouth, I woulda' told the world You're in capable hands and products with LAST John
(OT)Barry,If you are into classical at all, I can get you started with some nice vinyl....get you on your way to 1000+
