Thank you very much Mr. Stamler. The DAHR indeed looks like a very interesting project. Wish the best for the project (particularly if any of our members is involved), since this would certainly greatly helpful for digging into the early human prerecorded sounds.

If I may, I would like to ask one more related question. Among the periods of roughly 1890-1945, what types of genres were recorded? I understand that discerning music genres is often tricky question, but would it be sufficiently inclusive if I count classical, Souther hillbilly, Jazz, blues and gospel, and other popular musics like hot dance?

Please let me know if you can come up with other genre. 

Best wishes,
Jaemin
