X-Ray records

During the 50s, when vinyl was scarce, people in URSS began making records of banned western music on discarded x-rays.
With the help of a special device, banned bootleg records were pressed on thick radiographs salvaged from hospital waste bins and then cut into discs of 25/35 cm of diameter.
