Yesterday during the Essential Magic Conference, David Copperfield took all the viewers of the conference on a virtual tour of his museum. One of the stops along the way was the Edison Wax Cylinder Recording of Houdini's voice. Houdini fans have heard this before no doubt. But something struck me as odd when I first heard Copperfield play it back.
Though not a major discovery, I'm wondering if anyone else picked up on this. You can listen to Houdini speak below. But you would have had to register for the EMC 2011 Conference to hear the other version. If you did, it's on Session 9.
UPDATE: John Cox over at WildaboutHoudini.com has an article about the original 'first' discovery of the Wax Cylinders. http://www.wildabouthoudini.com/2010/11/houdini-speaks-in-1970.html
