Notes Phonograph record is a ten-inch, needle-cut, plastic disc of the Audiodisc brand, recorded on both sides. N.A. McQuown noted on the record sleeve that this is “Record 4”. [JJT has determined, based on listening to the recordings, that this disc was actually recorded after No. "5".] Note: The numerals "4-1" and "4-2", which are marked on the disc in wax crayon, appear to have been added to this and similar discs long after the recording; i.e., they are not the notations of anyone actually involved in the recording.
