Transcription Mystery Disc # 46

 This is another 1960s-era Voice-O-Graph disc. Unlike most others it's clearly labeled both on the disc and on the sleeve. It does however, lack a date. It starts at the outside edge and spins at 45 rpm.

All The Way

The bed noise was particularly pronounced but I filtered off the worst of it making a readily listenable chunk of audio. I applied a very light high pass filter and a standard 900 Hz low pass filter. Leaving a thick  slab of mid-range where most of the amateur recording occurred anyway.

The vocalist is doing a cover of a well known Frank Sinatra tune "All The Way" which was recorded in 1957. It was written by Jimmy Van Heusen and Sammy Cahn. This would tend to indicate that this Voice-O-graph belongs earlier in the labelography than I have previously thought. But, lacking a affirmed date, it remains uncertain.
