I particularly like the phrase, "archivally sound."  Double meaning?

There used to be a spray product whose name escapes me. It put a 
rubber-cement like layer on the disc which was then to be pealed off.  We 
all called it "Disco-snot."  It was much less effective than LAST-type 
liquids.

garbage at the bottom of the groove.
