I have noticed from the discussions that I don't find it in my Outlook, but
it shows up on my phone and on the webmail.

Perhaps that's a clue for somebody.


I was surprised at how many of these I have; for a garden-variety collector
I guess I've done pretty well, but it took 60 years.


ARSC Survey: Notable Pre-1923 Recordings

Dear ARSC member,
On January 1, 2022, the U.S. will establish for the first time a public
domain for the earliest sound recordings. Virtually anything released before
1923, whether recorded in the U.S. or elsewhere, will become free to use in
the U.S.
ARSC wants to introduce this treasure trove to the public at large. So we
are inviting you, the members of ARSC, to vote for ten "notable" recordings
released before 1923 from a list of candidates that include popular,
classical, roots music, spoken word, and social movements of the period.
Your choices should not necessarily be your personal favorites, but rather
the ones you think would be the best introduction to the era for the public
at large.
Go to
to review the list of recordings, hear them, and cast your votes. You can
even write in your own candidate!
Voting is open through Sunday, November 28, 2021. We think you'll have fun
doing this. 


The Association for Recorded Sound Collections (ARSC) is a nonprofit
organization dedicated to the preservation and study of sound recordings, in
all genres of music and speech, in all formats, and from all periods. ARSC
is unique in bringing together private individuals and institutional
professionals-everyone with a serious interest in recorded sound.
