Dear Will,
In Norway we have one recording from 1879 that we just have signed a contract with the McBride gang to transfer for us early next year.

Emne: [ARSCLIST] Pre-wax tinfoils

Does anyone know of any pre-wax (or at least "very old") tinfoil recordings which have survived? We have one at the British Library which is assumed to be circa. the dawn of recorded time, and I presume there are others out there? All leads appreciated.
