Centuries of Sound
More time-travel to the early days of recorded sound with James Errington. This time we find out about the interminable history of musical snobbery, hear some immensely beautiful, surprisingly thick Edison diamond discs and hear what Al Jolson and Billy Murray are up to.

Centuries of Sound is a mixtape for every year, as part of a project to release mixtapes for every year of recorded sound. An impressive historical artifact, but also an enjoyable listen, too.
