Facebook...But where, except on this list, could you have this kind of
conversation about 78's, which, if saved, is searchable twelve years later?
This is from October 2004:

As noted, Mike Gray says EMI began recording backups on tape in October 1948. No
LPs were issued by EMI till 1952, but 78s began to appear from tape sources
somewhere along the line..no idea how frequently, but Mike notes that one side of
Bantock's "Fifine At The Fair", recorded June and July 1949, was edited from two
Meanwhile, over at Decca/London, does anyone know when they started using tape?
I believe that all of US Columbia's first lps were mastered direct to disc from
the original 16" lacquers, which contained the original 4-minute takes recorded
for 78 issue. You can certainly hear flaws and over-long pauses in some of them,
such as Rodzinski's "Pictures at an Exhibition" where there's a huge pause before
"Great Gate at Kiev". "I Can Hear It Now" was acknowledged as having been produced
on tape on the original issue.
