[78-L] The cylinder is coming back

 "New Old Stock Edison cylinder blanks"?  100 year old 'wax' must be a 
lousy, brittle recording medium.  Someone should put them in touch with 
Shawn Borri for new material. I think that the next time he offers a dozen 
blanks, I'm going to blow the money just to have a work of industrial art.

 Their "One Take and That's It!" process obviously depends on them being 
MUCH less picky than the Edison, Victor, etc people 100 years ago, when 
"play it ONCE as loud as you can" would never have sufficed.  I think that 
modern expectations are so low that any noise, recorded acoustically, seems 
miraculous and wonderful.
