I had seen this story before.It is,indeed,a crime,but it doesn't surprise me.

Can someone identify the artist/conductor in those Supraphon 78s at your link?

� Dave, this is a real horror story. A woman friend who was a supervisor at a company used to repeat something one of the people she supervised said:

� "I am fiberglasted."

� So am I.

Liszt's pupil Bernhard Stavenhagen made only one Path� vertical 14" record.
The only known copy of the disc has been reshaped into an upward fashion,
roughly into the shape of a
tulip blossom, and used as the base for a lamp. I would love to know where
the lamp is, if anything to see if it is playable on an archeophone.
