**You will require an appropriate 78 RPM stylus for 78 RPM records. 33/45
RPM stylii are too small.

    Thanks Trevor - that's exactly what I was thinking of writing. :-)

    For the info of Don & others, Rockby Electronics flogs a little
phono -> USB converter which looks like it would do a reasonable job, see
http://www.rockby.com.au/searchres.cfm?searchkey=phono&imageField.x31%&imageField.y=7

    The price is $182 today but occasionally they put them on special
for about $80.

Or simply buy a Behringer UCA-202 and PP-400, for the same (lower) price any
day of the year.
Even less if you get a discount.

For God's sake buy a CD of it ! It will most likely have been properly
transcribed.

Only if you care about sound quality, noise and distortion, something the OP
said he doesn't.
(and obviously doesn't given what he bought)
No need to worry about incorrect playback EQ in such cases either, you'll
still get identifiable sound of some sort.

Like the sound on Pathe newsreels.
