Okay, thank you all... well ALMOST all of you. I received off-list a "Don't waste your effort, Ward Marston's already done it" type of email from an S & R Pinsker. Now, I wouldn't really consider that rude, but mayhaps I LIKE the challenge of re-doing a transfer. Ward goes great work, but if I am going to get something better than proficient at this, I need the practice. And, also MAYBE I'd like to have it in the digital domain for myself.

Not that your opinion is not valued, Mr Pinsker, I just vehemently disagree with it.

End-of-rant. Sorry to bother the rest of you with it.

Oh, and the LP transfer ain't too bad, and it beats lugging 56 sides thru the computer... and it IS a bit of a challenge, which I am working on now.

Mike Harkin asked:  Did you find 78's or an lp issue?? Marston has issued a 1908 Carmen with Emmi Destinn, in German, 56 sides.? An lp dubbing of this?    This Discophilia set dates from the mid-1970s.  They also produced an LP dub of the contemporaneous "Faust" with some of the same cast members (Karl Jorn, Emmy Destinn), along with single LPs devoted to various 78rpm-era German singers. I don't have the U.S. "High Fidelity" magazines from that period close by, but I remember first hearing about these sets from reviews in that mag.  Randy Stewart  Arts Producer  KSMU  901 S.
