a flat transfer experiment that actually sounds great!

Recently I've bought a cable to plug my turntable into the microphone socket of my mixer, to get a flat signal. This bypasses any modern equalisation that might be applied by the mixer, it sounds very different! Quite frankly I don't like to actually sit and listen to it flat, however it seems to be...

Re: Titanic

Welcome to the site!
Do you mean the stand to your post record? I did at one point have two copies, I'll be on the look out if it's that one!

jack hylton mercenary mary 1925, a classic!

A real dance band classic, this. Mercenary Mary, played by Jack Hylton's orchestra in 1925. I just replaced my pretty worn out copy with this nice E one!

percival mackey's band button up your overcoat 1929

https://youtu.be/11te5cvHIxA
This is great! Got this the other day for £1 from a friend, bit of a rough copy but I did my best with it, a great hot arrangement of button up your overcoat by Percival Mackey's Band, 1929.

Blue River Willard Robison 1927

Here's the other side to the St Louis blues posted earlier, I think this is the better side of the two, the one I prefer anyway. Wilard Robison sings and plays blue river, 1927.

willard robison st louis blues 1927, an odd one!

https://youtu.be/uRjAOyxAb7o the St Louis blues, sung and played by Willard Robison. This turned up in a huge free collection a couple of years ago, one of the best things in it and I can't find this online anywhere. This has an extra verse and is rather a different version to what I've heard previo...

Mischa Elman plays tchaikovsky in 1919

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCZavbpvAPo
What a wonderful record this is. Mischa Elman plays Mélodie Op 42 (Tchaikovsky), acoustically recorded in 1919. I've not done any noise reduction on this, just click repair, everything seemed to effect the piano so I just left it! This is hmv 07929.

tom clare the night when the old cow died 1912, pretty funny!

https://youtu.be/pdxWBNVxG_k It's nice to hear Tom Clare doing something that isn't the telephone record, this is something of a rarity to me as until today I'd never seen a copy. It came from a great collection I've just bought of mostly classical 78s and sets, great stuff! I've tried my best at re...
