Transcription Mystery Disc #197
This 12-Inch, metal-core Audiodisc brand acetate has a center start with is uncommon. It's in nice shape except for some notable oxidation. I was able to wipe off much of the whitish coating of palmitic acid. This indicated increased bed noise but it was tolerable. I edited a couple pops off the start of the recording to soften the one problematic area. Sadly it's wholly unlabeled.
The recording is of an unknown jazzy organ and clarinet duo. There are no vocals and I don't recognize the tune. The arrangement is a bit strange but speaks of a level of competence that's interesting. I wish I knew who this was.
