125 foot recording horn ??

I'd love to know a bit more about that...

Oh, that is fantastic to know!
Interesting aside - we'll exhibit this with some of our other unusual
formats, and your note about the horn will make interesting reading.

Thanks again,
Jeanette

Both sides recorded in December 1923, at West Orange NJ - both made with
the 125-foot recording horn, too!
Released in early 1924

I'm hoping some kind soul will help me out with this  -

We have uncovered an Edison Diamond Disc in our collections, 51292-R
Sleep 
by Earl Lebieg, performed by the Stevens' Trio, and 51292-L When Lights
are 
Low performed by the Stevens' Dance Quartet.  Can anyone out there tell
me 
the year this was released?

Our record catalogs don't run to this label.

Thanks,
Jeanette
