Interesting that the note says it was electrically recorded. But it doesn't have the W in front of the matrix number.
I haven't listened to the link. Does is really sound electric?

Hesitation Blues does have a W in the runout area. It sounds electric. All the Gillham sides from 25 Feb. do.

Maybe this will help clear some of it up. This is from the 1929 Columbia catalog.

^ So that has 343 D, the one in the DAHR link above that I posted, listed as "mechanically". Except the linked 343 D at DAHR has a W and sounds quite electrical.

Data ? :lol:

I just laid waste to your data, and you're still drinking the phono kool-aid.
