Transcription Mystery Disc #75
The other side of the disc was largely unrecorded except for some failed recording attempts with 2 or three rotations each. These all seem to have a tone or a few syllables but are largely unintelligible. It sounds like the words "testing" and "hello." The tones are brief and definitely not recorded at 78 rpm it is some other odd speed probably achieved while testing the recording unit.But inexplicably some of it appears to have been recorded in reverse...
Not knowing the tune all I can say for certain is that it was recorded around the time this make of duo disc blank was in circulation. Phonozoic gives a late 1940s date.
