Turtle Talk:
Columbia A1196
Some performances allow the background noise to be minimized without significantly affecting the sounds Turtle wants you to enjoy. This performance did not respond well. Several methods of minimizing the background noise were tried and failed. The most effective method took the brilliance out of the instrumental sounds. Please enjoy "When You And I Were Young Maggie" with the background noise.

Victor 64913
This performance also has light background noise from beginning to end. Nonetheless, you are likely to enjoy this performance by Irish Tenor, John McCormack.

Tech Tidbits:
Columbia A1196 was transferred using a 2.5 mil truncated elliptical stylus in a Stanton 500 stereo cartridge at 78 rpm on a United Audio Dual 1219 turntable.

Victor 64913 was transferred using a 2.7 elliptical stylus in a Stanton 500 stereo cartridge at 76 rpm on a United Audio Dual 1219 truntable. Often the two channel transfer is converted in to one channel (monophonic) signal by digitally combining the left and right channels (the signals from the left and right sides of the record groove).. Sometimes one channel has less noise than the other. In the case of Victor 64913, the right side of the record groove less noisy than the left. So this tranfer was completed using only the signal from the right side of the record groove.
