A quick post that I’ve been meaning to make.

I came across this a week or so ago and have been meaning to post about it. Archeophone Records is a label that sells recordings from early 20th Century. One of the cool things is that they have ‘year book’ compilations that let you sample music from different years.

This is an era of popular music that I’ve always wanted to check out, but have never had any kind of context with which to do it. As soon as finances get a little better (read, I stop spending all my money on books) I need to place an order with these guys.

If you already have some reference, or feel like just diving it, Archive.org has a collection of 78s and cylinder recordings that you can download.

Thanks to Neil Gaiman’s blog for the link to Archeophone.
