Permanent marker on a white board can be removed by writing over it with a dry wipe pen and then wiping it ....... just a thought?

Nothing on earth you can do about this. If the label is paper and the fibres are impregnated with dye, only a bleaching solvent will remove the ink but will take the label colour with it. If the label is printed onto styrene, a solvent will remove the ink but take a patch of label with it. Probably best to just buy another copy of the record.

Don't bother  as long as it's a genuine one & the grooves are clean the label quality makes no real  difference sometimes makes you want to find out its story by the name on it but apart from that do not let bother you

Leave well alone,it is permanent !!!!!.......

You have a mint record to play,keep it that way,if you use chemicals

or solvents,it may damage or even melt the record possibly including

the playing surface,then it would be scrap.

 

I have one or two similar to you,it adds to the character of the record,

part of it's history and above all, original rare vinyl. :thumbsup:
