Just obtained this interesting UK item...
- especially in connection with their "Laughing Robot".
O.D. Bingers in the UK were producers of Sales Aids - automatons for
store promotions, which occasionally turn up for sale in auction rooms
and fetch good money. But nowhere can I find reference to them in
connection with a soundtrack.
The record is not the same as the Parlophone or OKEH laughing record,
being just one man laughing for some 3 minutes, no accompaniment.
It is not a laquer, but shellac, with the obverse being blank, but
engine-turned. it seems to be dated 14/2/40.
Can anyone shed any more light on this fascinating survivor?
