Just thought I'd ask you about this.
As a collector of Crowded House for about 30 years, I went through my CD singles recently to rip them to iTunes - unsure why I haven't done this earlier! I was copying the UK pressings of CD singles (all the double packs) from the Woodface album (Nails In My Feat, Locked Out and Distant Sun). To my shock when I looked at the playing surface of ALL of the 6 CDs they all had this mold or fungus on it. It wasn't the furry kind that grows on fruit, it was hard but all the CDs were unplayable. It wiped off with a bit of force but unfortunately both my Locked Out CD singles are unplayable/unreadable.
I was wondering if anyone has the b-sides to them and can email them through? I know this is an odd request but I'm kind of peeved that I paid import prices for these years ago (about $30!) and they don't work. None of my other singles by CH don't have this mold.
Hope you can help
