…ladies and gentlemen… the “new” eight inch record…

….not only are they “electrically”recorded but they offer you a playing duration equal to a 10” record!!…

..they contain the dulcet tones of Jack Lumsdaine and /or the soothing timbre of The “Broadcast” Salon Orchestra of Australia….while they are not scratched they are very well loved…still playable but not free of surface noise as promised on the sleeve…

…. and this one has a lovely border of swastikas….

….so I’m hoping it’s pre-1938 or so …

…but considering the attitudes of some of our antipodean brethren that may not be the case.
