Turtle Talk:

Some record grooves are not centered around the hole in the middle of the record. As a result, the phonograph needle moves side to side as it follows the record groove. This is source of the swishing noise you will hear in the first half of this performance. To minimize this noise, Turtle tries to manually center the record on the turntable. Sometimes Turtle's efforts are effective. In the case of "In the Clock Store" Turtle's efforts were not very effective. If you know of a foolproof way of manually centering records, please. Please, PLEASE share it with Turtle.

Listen for the clocks and the cuckoo's....


Tech Tidbits:

Edison Diamond Disc 50487-R was transferred using a 3.7 mil spherical stylus in a Stanton 500 cartridge at 80 rpm. Turtle used Cool Edit and DC-ART 32 software to reduce noise and to adjust for frequency equalization differences between modern preamplifiers and acoustical recordings.
