Re: [ARSCLIST] Audio History In a Nutshell?
You'd have to research this.
My guess would be the Pope Leo XIII cylinder and probably similar
documentary items- Queen Victoris, Tolstoi, etc.
Many Edisons the other way around- discs, tdubbed to cylinder.
Was the Brahms cylinder ever on commercial 78?
If you count dictation cylinders, probably more, among religious figures.

Does anyone know of a single recording that started life as a cylinder
migrated to 78 went over to Microgroove eventually ended up on CD and
finally is now offered as an mp3? I'm sure such a thing must exist and I'm
equally someone on this list knows what it is. I'm not at all sure why
this thought came to me last night at 1:00 as a I lay in bed. But the true
beauty of the internet is that the next morning I can post this very
question instead of torturing myself for the rest of my natural life in
the twilight of uncertainty.
