Transcription Mystery Disc #248

This is a paper-core, 8-Inch Wilcox-Gay Recordio. It is not labeled or dated except for the single pencil marking on the sleeve "655 Warren." I would guess that number and name were part of a filing system. The recording itself is pretty peculiar.

655 Warren

It's a recording of two comedians. One man sounds a lot like the Ed Norton Character from the Honeymooners. The other man has a very deep voice which was difficult for the hardware of the time of record. I've compensated with EQ and compression to make him more clear. There is an audience you can hear laugh and titter through out.
