Ask Not For Whom The Bell Toils...

Today we get a one-sided 7" 33 1/3 rpm promotional single from Bell Telephone Labs showing off their state-of-the-art (for 1963) speech synthesis computer. You may recognize a clip midway through from its appearance in a seminal science fiction film. Sadly, fifty years later speech synthesis doesn't sound extraordinarily better, though it's nice not to have to use punch cards these days.
