Our friend in vinyl Seth from SoundStageDirect has offered to help celebrate the CVR blog going over 1 million page views and I have two In The Groove record cleaning rollers to give away.  So, the 4th and the 5th email to this email address ( with the words "SoundStageDirect" in the subject line will win an In The Groove record cleaner for their very own.  Limit one entry per email address!  Enter today!

In The Groove is a new ingenious record cleaning roller. Its patented material was designed by a surgeon for use in the operating room where it keeps surgical instruments close at hand. This patented material has been repurposed as one of the coolest record cleaning tools ever designed. The soft, sticky substance sinks deep down into the grooves, pulling out years of debris and removing ticks and pops from your vinyl. Place any LP on a flat surface and roll In The Groove on the record following the grooves. No fluids or cleaning agents needed. When it gets dirty, just rinse it off under the sink and blot it dry with a paper towel. The sticky surface will be good as new. Our highest recommendation for an entry-level record cleaning tool!

Presenting The Fabulous Ronettes

Release Date 1-21-2013
The Ronettes were a '60s girl group from New York City featuring the sisters Veronica and Estelle Bennett and their cousin Nedra Talley. Produced by world famous Wall Of Sound inventor Phil Spector, their legacy include all time favourites like "Be My Baby", "Baby, I Love You", "(The Best Part Of) Breakin' Up" and "Walking in the Rain", the latter winning a Grammy award in 1965. Presenting The Fabulous Ronettes (featuring Veronica) is the girl group's only studio album, and received a place in Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time. The group were even inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2004.
