Discs are the original field recordings cut in Guatemala c. 1935. In 1979 Donald H. Ledin dubbed the discs onto tape. (Note: It was determined that Ledin's dubs--done on a professional deck--were to be preferred for digitizing that playing on the DMA's turntable.) WAVE files are now converted to MP3s.
