about

These are the leftover tracks transferred from 78rpm discs for a forthcoming P series.

I have left the sound restoration in a partially completed state and the tracks untranslated in order to make the material available quickly and free as a gift to those invested and interested, while I continue to work on the notes and restoration for the larger project.

I have retained most of the oddities and spelling variants from the original disc labels, partially to help the digital labeling of tracks for Westerners (especially for Turkish-language names), and partially as a "flavoring" of the confluence of the East and West in that time and place.
