    obtained with very slight scuff on the very outer edge unfortunately meaning 2 of the last 4 tracks don't rip properly no matter what mode/app/OS/drive I use to rip. considering it's packed in a book, maybe the back inner cover scratched the disc over time? I wonder if a felted inner back cover might not have scratched the disc? Here's hoping I'm the only one with this issue.
