I have a nice version of this same song...trouble is is that it is on one of those floppy 30's disks and my copy isn't quite flat. :( I need to wait until the summer when I can use my technique for flattening disks between two sheets of glass in the sunshine. As the disk is made of a flexible piece of plastic I dont dare use the oven in case it goes pooof! :shock:

Nice recording BTW Norman. :D

RJ,

Is it a Durium disc? Have you ever tired using a binder clip to hold down the center of the records?

Regards,
John

No, the disk is a "Goodson". Looks to be made of a white flexible plastic material. It says to use a used needle to play it with! :o If I get a chance I'l take a picture and post it here.
