Here’s a very nice embossed image from one of the 78rpm record sleeves, from a collection of 50,000 discs I am packing up in Roskilde, Denmark. Like American releases these EU discs seldom contain the recording that should be in them, or even the correct label. But they’re might nice. Gallery of more sleeves coming tomorrow.
Here a pic of the barns we’re working in and one of the aspiring archivists helping us out.
Thanks to Leif and MaryAnn for the generous donation! Soon all the discs will be digitized and available to listen to as part of the Great78Project.
Our Dance Party is on Dec 10, with DJs (so far – more TBA) Fred Schneider, Craig Kallman, Hank Shocklee, ‘Jellybean’ Benitez and Laurie Anderson.
