Vinyl shatters - is it worthy of including, even as an aversion? According to the book: "It was a very old, terrific record that this colored girl singer, Estelle Fletcher, made about twenty years ago."

In early 1930s commercially available vinyl record would be more of a curiosity - though not completely impossible. Most commercially released records were shellac, due to cost consideration and most record players then in use being able to play only the shellac records, with vinyl becoming generally spread among general public only after the World War II.
