Okay, well I bought some more records, not for the recording, but for the label. Which seems to be a pretty common thing, for some collectors.

STANDARD DISC RECORD A227 Violncello Solo, the Rosary
Banjo Solo Motor March
( Unable to play, as I do not have a Standard machine)

Puritan 15035-A Poet and Pesant

Path`e 020964 Cirbiribin (needle cut)
B O Marri!

Oriole Black label 1593 a California Blues
b Goin' Back To Texas

Cameo 1634 Dream Pal
1635 Little Baby Feet

Columbia Phonograph CO. 3387 Sleep Little Baby of Mine

CADET CR 201-A Scotchnin' With the Soda
CR 201-B Cement Mixer (Put-Ti-Put-Ti)

STANDARD INTERNATIONAL F-108-A Hobo Joe Polka
F-108-B Under the Oak Tree Polka

The last one, was Recorded in the studios of Henry O. Berman Co. Baltimore Maryland. Gipsy Love Gipsy Princess. It's a 78, but with micro grooves, similar, to a 33.

Found a nut to use, to play the STANDARD Record, Shane. Thank You, for the suggestion.

I never thought of finding a nut to go around the spindle. Up 'til now I just centered my Standard records as best I could and played them. Isn't it ironic that a record with the name "Standard" is anything but?

They’re standard, it’s just that they’re their standard. :D

Well, the one I have is not too bad, it's not excelent, but it sounds okay. Actually, it's on of the few records I own, where, I can open the doors on, my Victrola. Without it being too loud, as opposed to some of the latter records. Which are loud, and I keep the doors shut. Of course my Columbia Phonograph Record, which is older, is not loud either, and suffers from some surface noise. It may be do to age, or the material, or how often it was played. They do however, give good examples of how recording changed since the early 1900's. By the teen's and twenties, the sound was improved even more. I am going to hold onto both, since they are the oldest records in my collection.

Those Standard label records (and in addition, those larger-hole items with brands like United or Diamond or Harmony or Aretino) are actually old Columbia records, usually with the names of the artistes suppressed, but otherwise with the same catalogue numbers as the Columbia products.
