BYG records...tracking problems?

4 posts in this topic

Do BYG records have a reputation for skipping? I have two Grachan Moncur III LPs on the label. With a naked eye the vinyl looks impeccable. And the records aren't warped at all.

Yet they will not play without skipping. 

Frustrating to say the least.

BYG did such an awful lot of releases (among others, they are one of the older Savoy reissuers) that I think it is impossible to generalize. What exact release number, year, pressing, country, distribution company listed on the back cover,  etc. are your LPs from?
I have a handful of BYGs (reissues) which I would date as late 60s/early 70s pressings and I cannot find anything wrong with them beyond what could be attributed to the condition of the record in general.

the pressings suck. It took me several copies of La Vie De Boheme (Dave Burrell) to get one that didn't have a sticking spot on side two. It would not surprise me if these were defective Moncurs; that being said I have both records and they are fine as far as playing through.
