      My oldest 78, from 1930, featuring the celebrated 16-year-old boy soprano Charles Hawtrey.

          Sunday's carboot was so dry of records that I went through a box of 78's. Surrounded by Bing Crosby's and classical records were these 3.


          1941


          1912. B-side is "Stand To Your Post". In remembrance of the Titanic.




          1933

          The last 2 records were housed in one of these Gramophone Warehouse sleeves.



          Still, I can´t play them

            That reminds me that I keep meaning too ask, those collecting the 78's how are you playing them? Deck with 78 speed, I assume?

                There are no flies on you, bennyboy, are there. Those Numark portables can do 78. I've got one but I can't start buying 78s- I've got too many bloody records as it is.

                  YEAH ALRIGHT. I played a 78 the other day by spinning the turntable very fast. Results weren't great.

                    all praise to my mum who found a box full of 78 test pressings at the car boot - she paid £6 for the lot! pretty much all
                    from 1957 and no doubt the same owner who never played them, there are about 30 more but these were the pick of the crop.

                      had some nice 78's turn up recently, Hank Williams and Jerry Lee Lewis among them and although this disc is good in it's own right it was the beautiful (but wrong) sleeve that I really liked





                      this one also in the wrong sleeve was very nice - but it would have been amazing to have it plugging his tune Midnight and The Stars and You as featured in The Shining - but Good Evening is lovely too

                        These are not mine but I just noticed the worlds smallest record has just sold for £400 - I assume they are 78's!

                          Listed for £400, but not sold. Sanity prevailed.

                              Not shellac then? How the hell would you knock the centre out of a shellac without destroying it completely?
