Subject: RE: FolksongRecording from 1860 made audible
I was at the ARSC conference where the presentation was made. The members of the team described both the original process and the recovery in detail, and they played both the version that was distributed around the world and the same recording with some modern noise reduction and filtering. The cleaned-up version was even more impressive as a window to a long-ago time and place.
Quite an amazing accomplishment.
