78 RPM Update
Labels and Sound Samples

Still having fun sorting through and indexing those records. Making some contacts, some sales and even joining Antique Phonographic Societies.

Today I spent some time recording from my personal collection. I haven't cleaned any of these, which is an option with shellac. These came out of the milk crates sounding this way.

Forgot to take a picture of this label but click on this link to listen to Elvis Presley sing All Shook Up.

And here are some other songs, with labels. (Disregard my flash, please)

As you can see by the credits the Louisiana Rhythmakers were a band that had Duke Ellington in it...before he got his own credits. This song is from 1932. Rockin' In Rhythm

Here's the inimitable Billie Holiday singing Rocky Mountain Blues

Surf-guitar god, Duane Eddy with Ramrod
Buddy Holly still raving with Rave On

And closing with Champion Jack Dupree doing She Makes Good Jelly
