Thanks, Mr. Morgan. That's great! I just ordered it and shall report later
on the sonic quality, which I'm prepared not to like. (Most
transfer/restorations diminish the power of 78s.)
Back in the Sixties/Seventies I did three Complete Mahler orgies on WHRB.
Each took about eighteen hours and I varied the recordings, and whenever
possible played the original 78s instead of LPs -- so I have most of them
on the shelf. But not alas the Fried M2; for that I used my Mahler buddy
Tony Lauck's straight unprocessed dub.
Those orgies produced a couple other good friends through telephone calls
and studio visits.
