Re: [ARSCLIST] Glass Records

Or you can also look at the center hole, if the substrate appears to be metal, that's a clue. Glass and metal look very different.

If one of them was recorded in the 30s, there's little chance that it'll be glass based unless it's a dub made between 1941 and 1946. Still best to handle these with the greatest of care, but you can easily identify a glass disc by holding it up to the light. If no light passes through, even faintly, you have aluminum based discs (or steel or cardboard).

Hi to all,
I don't usually post to the forum, however I read it daily and enjoy it. I have 3 Records made on Glass that were my Aunts. 2 records, recorded in the 40's are of the Stewart Sisters (backup group for Rudy Vallee, she was Jean) and one is a recording, done in the 30's of her group, "The Girlfriends Trio". I was hoping someone could direct me to a good internet site or book to educate myself about these records.

Also, I am sure there is a special way to store them, right now I have them in a large, 78rpm Album in a verticle position. Any thoughts? Thanks so much,
