Wax Cylinder Home Recording - Video
PUBLISHED:  Mar 31, 2012
Here is a recording of a brown wax cylinder that I own. This is a home-made recording. The record came in a sleeve identical to the one pictured in the video. I believe the recording consists of a lively conversation between two or more women. If one listens carefully, one can make out a few words and phrases. Unfortunately, this cylinder has been severely destroyed by mold. This is a recording I made of the record playing on my Edison Standard Model B phonograph. This is the one and only time I have played this cylinder on the machine. I am planning to mail it into the archives.
