Guinness Book of World Records

You might remember the direct-to-disc recording technique that was briefly popular among audiophiles toward the putative end of the vinyl era in the late 1970's; the recorded music from the studio is transferred directly to a master disk without intervening taping and overdubbing and such.  Warsaw Pakt has the distinction of performing on the first such transfer among rock recordings and even got an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records for their trouble.  Of course, this was also the standard means of recording music after Thomas Edison invented the phonograph, well into the 1950's.
