John Gale… Why are Cds so tightly wrapped in cellophane?? Not good for old gits like me with arthritis,,,, Another reason why vinyl is best
Alan Esdaile… I’m glad it’s not just me then.
Jim Breeds… You’re also tightly wrapped in cellophane!!!??? :Taking coronavirus precautions a bit too far, I think
Peter Millington… It may be to stop the unscrupulous twits from stealing the contents and putting the box back on the shelf!
John Gale… Not if you buy online, which I do but via Hive so that my favourite bookshop/ records hop gets a cut, It’s just too much for my old hands
Graham Sherrington… The sleeve could just have a security sticker over the edge. Coconuts here in Florida are wrapped in Plastic film. And so are single large potatoes!!!
Martin Richter… vinyl is better – mainly because i can’t read the sleeve notes on CD’s !
Richard J Porter… I use a sharp craft knife inserted carefully in the crack where the case opens then simply peel back.
Mick O’Dowd… Everything seems to be packed in unbreachable shrink wrap these days!
Andy Davies… Well a sharp knife is all you need for the cellophane, decent knees are needed to keep getting up to turn the record over.
Dave Nattress… They sure can be a pain to open and “Be Careful With That Axe Eugene” – Pink Floyd was it, or the the knife, so as not to scratch the cover especially with those in the cardboard packets. But…actually it’s every damn thing these days – shrink-wrapped, like my morning half a packet of ginger nuts to be dunked in the coffee, try and open the packet – you need a sharp knife carefully gauged between a couple of bickies. Sign of the times I guess to stop people tampering with food-stuffs etc. etc. – as happens or like someone said, opening packets and pinching stuff etc.
