Spinning my Ghosts reissue now... getting persistent crackling in the right channel (only on the A side so far, haven't tried the others yet). Hopefully this is just my copy, anyone else?

Mine sounds awful because the paper inner sleeves scuffed it bad. Why do people insist on using paper inner sleeves still?

I definitely prefer poly lined sleeves as well, but to me the bigger problem is the insane amount of dust and debris I often find on band new records. This one was pretty clean. I think the noise seems to be embedded in the grooves, not a dirt or scratch issue. I'll give it a wet clean but I'm not optimistic it will do anything. Also, I'm on the B side now, and while there is still some noise it's not as bad and fades a few tracks in. The album sounds gorgeous otherwise.

My copy sounds exactly the same. It’s pretty bad on side A, but not as bad on the others. Apparently a few other people on other boards said the same thing.
