Three nice recent actual 78s are the EMI 100th anniversary acoustic disc by 
Roberto Alaagna from 1997; the 2000 HMV store issue of Edward Elgar's first 
1931 recording made at Abbey Road backed by Robbie Williams "Millenium;" 
and the Cliff Richard HMV reproduction of his first recordings.  The EMI 
uses the angel/gramophone label and the HMV has the color Nipper label that 
was in use in the 30s.
