About: Billy Murray
Victor 18386-B was transferred using a 2.5 mil truncated elliptical stylus in a Stanton 500 stereo cartridge at 76 rpm on a United Audio Dual 1219 turntable. Turtle believes that this recording should be heard at about 74 rpm rather than 76 or 78 rpm. The proper playback speed of early "78's" is not always 78 rpm. Since the slowest speed on the Dual 1219 turntable is 76 rpm, Turtle used digital signal processing technology to slow the 76 rpm transfer to about 74 rpm.
