FANTASTIC MUSIC!

Here are a few of my 78's.  I tried to do as little noise reduction and restoration as possible to still capture the charm and age of these records.  I used a Dual 1218 turntable with a Shure M78s (shunted to play monoraul and with a wide groove, 2.5mil N78 stylus), through a Yamaha CR-640 receiver, through a Realistic 12-band Stereo equalizer (rolled off the highs and lows) and finally to a Sound Blaster Live 128 sound card.  I use Cool Edit 2000 to record the sound digitally and to do the sound clean-up and mp3 conversion.  Check back here often to see if I have added any files.  All of these records are in my own collection.  I only ask that you listen to these files and don't go shooting them across the Internet without giving me credit.  Now, sit back, relax, and have a listen to the past!  For now, all files are in mp3 format.
