You are about to enter the delightfully low-tech world of early recorded sound. Whether you are a newcomer or old-hand to old, old-time recordings, you'll enjoy this voyage into the wonderful sounds of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

I know a few people with Edison players. Most tubes go for about 7 bucks. Very cool.
The politics of the day are present in some of the song titles you will see on these things. One of my friends had one called "Nigger In The Barnyard." Nice.
The closest I have come to any of these things is the CD I had of Crowley reading in his own voice, the source of which was wax cylinders.

You should check the origins of that phrase. I might be wrong, but I've a feeling that it's not technically referring to black people. But on the other hand, I have some 30s and 40s country type things which are decidedly ambiguous on their racial politics.

Thanks for the info Mr Marras. I'll miss you when you're/ I'm/ everything's gone.

There are a few of these exotica/weird/blah blah blahs blogs and websites that i'm addicted to that indeed have some ancient country songs that are blatantly racist in the lyrics and weren't definately meant as a joke.

Ha. I've a feeling you've happened across my mate Zoe's blog, she collects them to annoy her boyfriend (who's one of 'em).

I think that song was actually classed as a "novelty tune" and it was for concert band, so we may never know. I'm pretty sure the reference was to black folks though. It's from the late 1800s in America.

I swear i've found this recording of a flexidisc that MacDonalds would pass around to its employees in the late 70s and has this vile tune played in every possible style dominant at the time in order to encourage underpayed staff to work with a smile on their faces.Another great one i've found a few years ago was this tape recording of cleaning training techniques for another of these burger outlets.My,do i love this stuff!

I used to have an instructional LP from the late 50s/early 60s (I think it was meant to accompany a filmstrip or something) on how to give a cleansing enema to a patient.

"Without exposing the patient unneccessarily, separate the buttocks and locate the anus."

I'd throw that shit on when least expected.
I gave it to a guy who was a sound collage genius.

I remember a few years ago a member of the house of Lords using the phrase 'a nigger in the woodstock', which it transpired was an archaic non-racist phrase. I assume the two phrases are related. I should really check my facts, but I can't actually be bothered.

I only really indulge in aerobics records because they're easy to find.I had a phase of collecting King Kong soundtracks that lasted for a while but then waned.

The connotations in post-civil war America would most certainly be otherwise.

This record featuring tips and instructions was probably given away with a new sewing machine. What a great way to learn about your new machine! It features very nice graphic design on both sides . This was made in Japan which is unusual for discs of this nature which were usually created in the USA.
Heavy cardboard with laminated record on one side. 33 1/3 rpm, late 1950's or early 1960's.
