DGG CD Deterioration - グラモフォンCDの劣化

I found serious damages with old Deutsche Grammophon and Archiv CD boxes. The composite foam of cushion sheet inside the box resolved in ages and consequently adhered to the disc surface. I tried to wipe them out and had to wash them carefully, but they were not fully restorable. The printing on the surface tended coming off sooner than the alien. Furthermore in some discs the trouble was not only with the printed surface but some sort of stain penetrated in the data side. For example, the third disc of Karl Böhm’s “Magic Flute” caused numerous errors failing continued playing. I had never imagined that this CD box would die sooner than my LP package.
