I am new to the list, so I hope I am corresponding with you all in
the proper manner with this email. If not, just let me know and I
will redress accordingly.
I am the Artistic Director of an eclectic contemporary group called
cordis - and I am in a pickle - hoping you or one of your members
might be able to assist, or at least point me in a direction. I very
recently aquired a Victor IV talking machine, with the foolish
assumed there would some boutique sources out there that would be
able to press shellac discs. My research has indicated otherwise,
and I am now in a bit of a panic as the ensemble is knee deep in the
recording of a new album that is dependent upon the use of our trusty
Victor. We can always fake it in the studio, but live, we cannot.
Do you know of any sources who might be able to assist us here? i am
a neophyte when it comes to understanding this early technology, so
please forgive me if my query comes across as ridiculous. any
direction you might be able to offer is greatly appreciated.
