Comments
With 1947.02.16

Some of the best conducting and playing I have ever heard!

Chorus prepared by Peter Wilhousky.

GS Generally a more forward sound than Guild but with some acetate noise and distortion.

At times, one sounds better than the other so it is sort of a toss up.

Treble increase on AT sounds same as GS.

FM excerpts same quality as AT pitched slightly higher.
