Dear Bob,

What you have is a set of recordings made by Universal in Chicago. Fibre
needles went the way of the buggy whip. You can use any cartridge suitable
for broad groove discs, but you may have to try several sizes and shapes of
styli. Seth Winner has extensive experience with aluminum discs; ask him.
If your discs are in unworn condition, I would think you have a rarity.
