Tens of thousands of dollars and a waiting list ... and I don't know
anyone who actually has one and uses it for preservation. Though
apparently they are *damn fine*.

[Wikimedia-l] Rarest records

2014-08-04 Thread Andy Mabbett
This is a good read in its own right:

   
http://www.slate.com/articles/arts/books/2014/07/amanda_petrusich_s_do_not_sell_at_any_price_reviewed_by_sarah_o_holla.html

but the thesis that some 78rpm records constitute the only surviving
example of a particular recording, with no master in an archive
somewhere, sent chills up my spine.

2014-08-04 Thread Jesse de Vos
Thanks, great article. At Sound and Vision in the Netherlands we recently
digitized nearly 10.000 (mainly Dutch) 78 rpm records. Unfortunately
researching whether this material is PD or not is an enormous effort. By
the looks of it only a very small part of it will be PD in the US. Once the
research is finished we will upload these to commons.

This is surprisingly common with indie records. Frequently, a few
hundred pieces of vinyl are the *only* copies of the music in
question.

Eh there used to be fairground/seaside booths where you could cut your own
record. One the plus side this stuff should last longer than say floppy
discs.

I've wanted one of these for years: http://www.elpj.com/ OTOH, even
the Internet Archive doesn't bother with those, they just use ordinary
Technics turntables.
