...and the pics! I picked up one transcription disc that I'll probably never be able to drop a needle on. It looks like there is at least an hour of music on each side. Have you ever converted any of those discs to a more accessible format? They must be fun to listen to?
Keep em' comin' cactus', pics and music!
The sixteen inch transcription discs are a lot of fun to listen to. Some truly great music. Over the past weekend, I transferred a batch of these giant records to WAV files. Since the condition of these discs ranges from "G" to "VG", I then cleaned up clicks & pops with Click Repair software.
The running time on these is about 14:50 per side. They're all live recordings and it's great to hear the artists speak to the audience as they introduce songs. Ferlin Husky and his alter-ego "Simon Crum" are featured on one disc, what fun!
I'd love to put some of this on my youtube channel as most (perhaps all) were never released commercially. I'll have to track down copyright owners for permission first though.
I find it interesting that the running time per side of a 16-inch record is less than 15-minutes. I would have though that 16-inch records would have significantly longer running time than 12-inch records. I guess the groove spacing must be kind of wide.
