My new oldest record(s)
From September 14, 1956, Helmut Walcha plays The Art of Fugue by Johann Sebastian Bach (in Stereo). And not a scratch on them, with a little card of composer/production info (in German) and a book about the music, artist, and organ(in German, English, and French). Pretty cool for $6 on ye olde auction website.
Are we there yet? No, never there yet. Keep it rollin', we're paid by the mile.
