"Purists wouldn't deem that a genuine 78. Sure, it looks like a 78 and plays
like a 78, but it was probably recorded on tape.

WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT??????  What "purists"????????  Who are these
"purists"???  I've never met one. Since 1941 there were practically NO 78s
mastered in the recording studio on a master running at 78 that was used to make
the metal parts. They ALL were mastered on 16-inch lacquers, often using the
western Electric Wide Range Vertical system. After 1951 NOTHING did not pass
through a tape before the master for plating was cut.
