What did Pop sound like back in the day?

21 Mar

Before MP3’s, CD’s, tapes, and records, there was the wax cylinder, one of the coolest musical inventions of all time. Created by Edison Phonograph Company, these cylindrical records were what people listened to from 1890-1920. Now thanks to a Santa Barbara website and some scholars, collectors, and independent record labels, people today can listen to some of America’s greatest classics, like Stella Mayhew’s “I’m Looking For Something To Eat”

The site offers free MP3 downloads for your ipods. So go ahead and listen to some real old school tunes.
