> As to why this concerns me, looking for projects in retirement, I decided to do a book (or perhaps a website) of the covers of odd LP records I have acquired in shops over the years.
There have been perhaps 25 books of album covers over the years. You
would need to look at all of them to see if what you would have to offer
would be different and better.

Unless the recording includes the closing announcement with the
identification of the announcer as Sidney S. Brown, the recording is
either incomplete or fake. If the recording does not include the
uncensored punch line "Oh, he sh--!!!" it is also either edited or fake.
Graham Newton once discovered THE original 16-inch lacquer master and
made a high quality dub of it. David Lennick also has that dub which is
higher quality than any other, plus isn't cut into four sections.
