Incredible Collection of 78 RPM's as Free MP3 Downloads

This site has a list of over 3600 titles recorded from a collection of 78 rpm records. Many of them are linked to MP3 files and will play what was recorded. No sound enhancement, just what was recorded. They hope to eventually have all the titles linked to music files, though that might take a while.

Right now, there are over 2,350 titles on this page linked to mp3's. Only 1,200+ to go! Let them know if there is anything in particular you'd like to hear and they'll hook it up when they get the time.

They have about 2500 more records to record, so they'll be adding more titles as time permits over the next hundred years or so.

I wish my dad were still around because he would be in heaven with all this music. Much of it I grew up with.

Here's a couple of one's I enjoyed:


LILI MARLENE - Marlene Dietrich (DECCA 23456A)

LITTLE BROWN JUG - Glenn Miller (BLUEBIRD B-10286-A)

RIDERS IN THE SKY - Vaughn Monroe (RCA VICTOR 20-3411-A)

TIGER RAG - Firehouse Five Plus Two (GOOD TIME JAZZ 13)
