Hi, Steve, that was an impressive list of credits!

I used Jim Shelton and Bob Ludwig for my recording of the St. Thomas 
Church organ...and then left town never to produce Volume II of Organs 
of NY. Fortunately, I might have partially inspired JAV Records which 
are doing a wonderful job. We had a devil of the time fitting those 
10,000 pipes into that tiny groove. Bob had to work some magic as a 
compromise between my purist desire and semi-reasonable trackability.

Your comment below about Burwen? I did not recall them making a 
declicker, but they did make a sliding denoising filter which was 
underwhelming in most applications.

One thing I've heard a bit about is from 1947 via Philco Radio Time and 
the Burl Ives Show: the Philco Electronic Scratch Eliminator. I had not 
realized there were attempts at this--especially at the consumer 
level--so early. How did it work (that is both a technical question and 
an aesthetic question)??
