PHONOFOSSILS 2

An Introduction to the Wonderful World of 78s

A selection of recorded gems from the past covering a wide range of musical styles and novelty material.The Phonofossils series is intended as an introduction to the music, songs, stories and novelty items which abounded in the early gramophone catalogues.

With specialist techniques, these gems have now been transferred to a modern digital format and made accessible to researchers, musicians, singers, performers or anyone who is just interested to know what sorts of records their grandfathers and great-grandfathers might have been enjoying up to a century ago.
