Well, I for one have a lot of interest in the audio contained on these old cylinders and discs. Most of the 78s I have have music that you're probably not going to get on CD. Old dixieland jazz, swing, boogie, comedy, commentary...If I was able to download an MP3 copy of the recordings, I'd have to get another broadband connection just to be able to write these comments! I'm not alone. Prices on vintage recordings and players seem to be going up everyday. I can't afford to add any cylinders to my collection any more. And, I know I'm not alone, it was a friend that turned me on to all the good stuff on old the old discs.
