The Great 78 Project is a community project for the preservation, research and discovery of 78rpm records. I think it is one of the most amazing digital humanities projects out there today. As a material culture researcher and music collector I have enjoyed the collections very much. I decided to make a quick mix with some of my favourite tunes.
Copyrights that may exist in these materials have not been transferred to the Internet Archive. I do not own the copyright of the recordings used in this mix/playlist; it has been shared for artistic, preservation and educational use only and no copyright infringement has obviously not been intended.
In my mix I modified the equalization slightly and added some subtle effects. I hope this does not annoy those who with all reason have a lot of love and respect for this music. All my gratitude to the Internet Archive, George Blood, Jessica Thompson, Bob George, Brewster Kahle for sharing these cultural treasures. Shared for educational use.
