Last night I dug out my Stranger in this Town CD by Richie Sambora, it must be about three years since I last played it and as I took it out of it's case I noticed that the back of the CD was a browny gold, and the area wher there is no recording was brown. It struck me that it looked just like some old no-brand CD media I bought years ago that destroyed itself in the same way. So thinking that couldn't be the case with a 1991 official CD ignored it. Everything was fine up to track 5 then skippy skip and eventually it got stuck. I've three players and the PC drives and nothing wants to know, it's even beyond EAC. The playing side is clean with no marks and still silver, but if I hold it up to the light I can see holes through it, some bigger than others. Any other members have CD's which have died sooner?
