Here are the records that came with the Beethoven. The 2 paper label Diamond Discs are staying with me. The ones missing labels all have moisture damage & rim chips. There is a nice set of Two Black Crows parts 1-6 by Moran & Mack, but that's about it. Not too exciting.

We have one member of the forum who may have enough of the parts to resurrect this machine. We also have a member who would like it as a restoration project, if I can get it to him (5 ½ hours from me and only 1 ½ hours from where I picked it up). What to do, What to do? I am open to input from the all-knowing forum. ;)

After much deliberation, I was convinced to tackle the restoration myself. There are several members gathering parts to help me get this rare machine up and running. Cosmetics will come later. Thank you all for your input.

Just FWIW, the "Two Black Crows" series were 4 records, (i.e. 8 parts). Looks like you're missing parts 7 & 8, which for some reason always seems to be the missing record. My theory is, that nobody could stand to listen to 8 sides of this, so the 4th record was rarely purchased.

I actually like some of the one liners in these records. I occasionally quote them. Oddly, this has not improved my social standing in the least.

"When I was growing up, we had a pig that we named "Ink". Why, you may ask... Because it kept running out of the pen". What a knee slapper!

To quote Moran and Mack, "Even if that was good, I wouldn't like it!" Classics. I have owned 7-8...not as good as 1-4.
