I actually found a picture of the recorder used. It's an EMI L2B from 
about 1955.

Why he used a good mike? Maybe it was used in the theatre performance.

BTW, David, I will be playing a few of Nat "King" Cole's recordings from 
the 1939 transcriptions in my radio programme. The ones you transferred 
for Naxos. Terrific job - very good sound!
I wonder: was it really THE Pauline Byrns (Byrne) who "led" the vocal 
group Pauline & Her Perils on some of these recordings? She sounds a bit 
different from the Pauline Byrne on Shaw's recordings made a year later.
