Maybe it's dust, you can't always see it. I had the same problem with a LP, then located the cause of the dust and when I cleaned that it played flawlessly again! Not sure if you have the same problem, but sometimes you can't see the dust so try cleaning your album and record player!

The arm may not be heavy enough. Try blu-tacking or sellotaping a 1/5p to the arm. Me and my flatmate both had this problem of tracks skipping or repeating with old turntables and the 5p on the arm fixed the problem completely.

Hey, I like that idea with the 5p, might try it with my vintage looking but not so vintage in reality player. So, thanks! (I think I might use a 2 cent coin though)

i gave it a good clean and cleaned my turntable which was absolutley flithy :? It did stop the skipping on all the other tracks but there is a small skip on you are always the one and skips at the same place. so there must be a tiny scratch that i can't see, ah well. thank you for the help! :)

Same happened to my copy, I was so annoyed. Made sure there was no dust on it, and it still skipped...
I was tempted to try the 5p on the tone arm trick, but I heard that can damage your records in the long run
Oh well it's an amazing addition to my collection

Hey! If anybody's vinyl is damaged or doesn't work properly (or just if you don't have one) I've got an extra one which they sent me by mistake for free so you can have it if you want. Just message me on twitter or something.. Would just need you to pay shipping though
