In my Live Journal Birthday posting 25th. March 2007 I wrote

I have also located other memorabilia - an olde 45 rpm recording produced by the Soviets for the Soviet Exhibition in London in 1961 with the voice of Yuri Gagarin acknowledging Soviet supremacy in space - one side with Russian commentary and the other side with English commentary and an autograph of clarinetist Artie Shaw. I'm sure these things have value.

This is the front cover

I have captured the audio from the disk in both English and Russian but the size of a single MP3 file takes me over my upload limit. The .mp3 file in English is 3,290 kb and in Russian 3,336 kb and I only have 3,013 kb of file space left. It was recorded using a USB turntable and the included program Audacity (I already have the Windows and Linux versions of Audacity).

At least I have the audio in .mp3 format.

There is a similar recording (in German) at gibblegabble.blogspot (about half way down)
