We are collectors of Edison Phonograph antiquities here at Americana CD
Mastering . In our collection ,
we have Blue Amberol cylinder records of two Polk Miller songs recorded
in November 1909 for Edison's clientele:
Blue Amberol #2176 "The Laughing Song " and
#2175 " The Bonnie Blue Flag "
We currently have an mp3 of the Bonnie Blue Flag as played on our Edison
Concert Amberola Model A1 and recorded to Ampex GrandMaster 456 then
transferred to aif file on a Masterlink at 48khz/24 bit resolution . This way you
get to hear the true sound quality of the cylinder as the Edison recording
staff intended it to be ; and as it was heard and enjoyed by the thousands
of Edison customers who purchased it 90 years ago !
If anyone on the ARSC list would like to have a copy , email me off list
and will send it as an email attachment.
