Ed, John -   I kid you not, it's the real thing.  I've heard something 
like this used on a couple of tracks recently, one began with a needle 
drop, lead in groove scratch, filtered 20's sound gradually fading to a 
modern recording.  It's an interesting effect that could be used with 
bands like The Sultans of Swing, Steven Bernstein's Millennial 
Territory Orchestra or the myriad of Django bands to add an additional 
artifact of authenticity to the sound.
