Please correct me if I am wrong, I don't think it was Hyperion
that had this problem, but ASV. If I had to confess it, I have many CDs
from Hyperion and never a problem, beside which Joanna Gamble,
who sort-of ran Hyperion for Ted Perry, for most of the 90s, is a friend
of mine (played the horn once upon a time) so l would have heard about it.
On the other hand, this major problem occurred at AVS.
They produce all of Emma Johnson's CDs. Philips (UK) or PDO Discs Ltd,
Philips Road, Blackburn, Lancashire BB1 5RZ, England - do their "pressing"
and for a period in about 1989-1991 their vacuum deposition stage became
contaminated with air, water and iron (!) so that the CDs eventual (1995)
went rusty
causing major dropouts and noise. At enormous cost, they have undertaken
to replace free of charge all CDs returned to them (there is an inland
Freepost address).
I have had to return all Emma's CDs for replacement. I know this does not
help if you
are thousands of miles away, but I needed to put a word in for Hyperion.
