a very rare ballad I've been looking for for 20 years found!

https://youtu.be/oT9MIClt1l0 This is a very rare song indeed, and I've been looking for a recording of it literally since I started collecting 78s.

Re: The Largest Gramophone in the World demonstrated

Have you ever listened to any of the nimbus prima voce cds or are you talking out of your hat? They're awful, obviously edited, dreadful things, now that's a crapophone for you the one that was used there.
