it will pop up some day.  it does exist.  it wont be cheap.  even in india, they know.  then the question remains, you just spend 500 bucks on a 78: thats being shipped from India- how many pieces will it be in (hopefully: one).

It exists alright, but it's almost impossible to find.

I have one. Bought it around 25 years ago, along with an Indian Beatles 78, from an ad in Record Collector. Cost me 50 (the Beatles 78 was 100). I've never seen another since - that's my copy on the Starline website.

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Dawg can you make a video of it next time you go for a spin?  Does it sound less compressed and better than the 45? You are without a doubt beach boys collector #1 here if you have that-- incredible.  thanks for stepping forward!!!!!!!!!!

Shellac is quite a noisy (almost inherently noisy) sound carrier, so I don't think it would sound better than a well-kept 45. It's not a record I listen to often, mainly as neither of my turntables has a 78 speed option (also it would require swapping to a mono cartridge etc).

There are a few folks round here that make my collection look pretty part-time, but thanks for your comments!
