Laci Racz is on record?! I've heard Sándor Lakatos (on record) play some tunes by him, and there's a great story in Szigeti's memoirs about when he was a little kid in Budapest, he and his father would frequently go to some cafe where a certain Pali Racz (Laci's son) would be playing, and would always play the first few bars of Bach's E major Preludio (mixed into whatever csárdás he was playing at the time) as a greeting to young Jóska.

Where did you find these records?!
