Where the heckity heck is the story of how the original 78s were transferred at 
Reeves Sound Studios, and one was cracked so it had to be smeared with axle 
grease or something to play through (which is the real reason for the sticker 
on the American labels, not defective processing due to bombing raids)? I 
thought it was in the Bear Family "Political Action" book but I can't find it 
there. Was it online, maybe a link from the Almanac Singers website?
