Archeophone Records

Full results for Archeophone Records >>



Archeophone Records, was founded in 1998 with the aim of preserving public-domain recordings of the acoustic era of the recording industry on digitally remastered media, together with extensive annotations, discographies, and rare graphics. Their collection covers a very important and often over-looked area of American 78 rpm music preservation: early 20th century popular music. In the rush to make available the extremes of unheard music, Archeophone features the music that was being consumed by people of the late 19th and early 20th centuries in America. This provides a view of musical tastes and aesthetics that complement work by more esoteric collectors and curators of lost 78 rpm music to give a broad and brilliant picture of the listening mind of 1900s America!
