Good to hear from you. Yeah, Mike's regaled me with this story before but I can't seem to remember the details. I'll hit him up at the conference.
How are you these days? I've missed you the last few years. Hope to see you soon.
BTW, I got a kickback on this email. [log in to unmask] See if it goes through this time.

IIRC, Mike Biel knows the answer.

Steve Lasker would probably be helpful as to when Decca began mastering at 33,3rpm vertical. I do know that some pop material was recorded both 78 and 33.3, in which case the latter was the backup. Mike Grey has researched some of the major transcription studios and he may know about World and Standard.
