Hello Mike

I have the above recording (May 5th, 1925) on the CBS LP 66264 (re-mastered by CBS engineer Larry Hiller), and there doesn't seem to be any distortion of Bessie's voice other than the inherent distortion of early electric recordings due mostly to the method of recording and not to the insufficiencies of early microphones.
