Re: [bbshop] The Virtual Gramophone - Canadian Historical Sound Recordings
- Mike, let me add my thanks. I spent some time on this this
weekend and really enjoyed the recordings. Also liked
the comedy bits by one Mr. Berliner about Mr. Cohen.
Old vaudeville comedian bits that are great.
The instrumentals put you back in time as do the vocals.
One really has to wonder (not that what we do now isn't
infinitely better) just what the Preservation we speak of is.
Every pre-Society quartet, and there's a bunch of them there,
had long solos and plenty of instruments. Of course the
recorded voices were tinny and not as polished as now, but
the product was not what we do today, except for the harmony.
