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

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

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

    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

    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.

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

    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.

    mine is a sexy, portable Columbia Viva Tonal Gramophone No.201

    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
