    Thanks Neutrino, very interesting!

    Unfortunately my mother used to sing that song all the time when I was little and it will probably be days before I can get it out of my head.

    I have lost the link to the site, but I once ran across a fellow on the web who made optical scans of conventional record albums, and had developed a program that "played" the scans. The quality was poor, but the ingenuity behind the implementation was impressive.

    this is highly mysterious, why did they record the first line of the second verse instead of the first.

    We may never know the answer to that question.

    This is a perfect example of why I listen to what history teaches us... but only believe what I see.

    Very cool!

    There has long been speculation that it may be possible to recover sounds that were present during the making of some clay pottery, but afaik, no one has shown that this is possible under any conditions.
