Re: [ARSCLIST] Paris Opera Unearths 100-Year-Old Recordings by Melba, Caruso, Others
I bet if they were stacked the bottom couple of them in the pile are broken

exhumed a musical time capsule: recordings of some of the greatest singers
of the early 20th century, made in 1907 and sealed for opening 100 years
The two urns containing the old discs go on display today at the national
library in the French capital, Agence France-Presse reports.
Nellie Melba (top) and Enrico Caruso
Each vessel contains 12 discs recorded and donated by the French subsidiary
of The Gramophone Company (ancestor of today's EMI).
For a mere stack of 12????? I can stack 100 with no damage! And the Gramophone Company is hardly the "ancestor," more like the forerunner?
