Cylinders Make The World Go 'Round!

Whether you’re a fan of cylinders, or just casually acquainted with the notion, check out the UCSB‘s Cylinder Preservation and Digitization Project. They’ve got over 5,000 recordings ranging from the 1890’s to 1920’s transferred from Edison cylinders, all available for download in MP3 (cleaned up) and WAV (uncompressed, but also not touched up, so they’re pretty staticy) format. Pretty hot stuff, considering it’s all free to download (from what I understand, Edison cylinder recordings are all in the public domain). Get going!

    1. Whoa, seriously? I love what you guys are doing! I’ve been showing the site to just about everyone I know, and downloading all sorts of songs. I thought the ID3 tags were a nice touch, as it makes for easy sorting into my iTunes library. Keep up the awesome projects!
