Subject: Re: CED's for Sale and Auction!
Priority: normal

Greetings fellow CED collectors!

Got some hard to find CED's up for auction on EBAY and some
others on my web page.  I guess it's a good time to buy CED's
because I was checking old prices and they don't seem very high.
Will make half-price deals on the titles listed on my web page if
you purchase more than 5 of them.  Here are the links:

I will soon have the RCA video preview album up also!  Duran
Duran, Paul McCartney and Wings Rock Show, the Police, and
"Picture Music" featuring bands from the 80's.

Also might trade on most wanted titles..

Subject: Caddy variations

I recently picked up another copy of The Who's "The Kids Are Alright"
movie on CED.  This one differed slightly from the other two copies
that I have.

Besides the blues on the caddy label having a greenish tinge and the
reds having an orangeish tinge (a result of sun exposure, I'm guessing),
the new copy does not have a handhold recess on the label end of the
caddy.  The label is the same as the others except doesn't have the area
trimmed away where you'd grab the disc for inserting and removal.
Likewise, by feel, I can tell the plastic of the caddy itself
doesn't have the recess.  There doesn't appear to be any other
label under the one for "The Kids Are Alright."

Is this a common variation in disc caddies?

This rainbow effect occurs on RCA F/G players when the belt-driven
turntable is not spinning at 450RPM. There can be a number of causes that
are covered on the Repair Solutions page at CED Magic. Here's the direct
URL to this specific problem: --Tom
