"For example, Dippermouth Blues by King Oliver in 1923, is in C at 78 
RPM, but appears to be correct in the key of G."

I neither know, nor care, what key "Dippermouth Blues" was actually 
recorded in, but I suspect that B-flat might be a more realistic 
alternative than G.

Sigh. Takes all sorts, dunnit?
