As mentioned, I have only played a few of the Diamond Disks that I have; I
do find it quite moving to listen on Christmas Eve to music the way people
alive in 1911-1912 listened to it, and to think about how life was then. I
will probably continue the practice. Unfortunately even the best
digitization of Diamond Disk and other acoustic recordings will still sound
like acoustic recordings. At this point I don't think I will try to gather
together the equipment to do a proper transfer. The best course may be to
catalog what I have, and see if there is anything worth spending money on
Lou-go to the right hand side of Mickey's home page
and click on 'Click Here For Catalog'. It is not very big. When you get to
the catalog you can pick CD or MP3. It would seem at this point that PayPal
is the only way to pay.
