The 78 Trap



After buying my USB Turntable,  I started looking for old blues and jazz 78s. I recently went to my favorite fleamarket, and found a vendor selling boxes and boxes at $1 apiece. Some of the gems I found have not seen the light of day in over 70 years, and I am now obsessed with digitizing some of them! Even the record labels themselves are pieces of fine design and typography.
