of the selections here have been musically arranged so that an actual metal disc
could be punched for an antique 15 1/2" Regina/Polyphon disc musical box.
The tunes are heard on this CD as rendered by the MusicBox15 simulator. They sound
very similar to what you would hear from an actual musical box playing the disc.
Metal Discs Are Now Available!
