  The North American Phonograph Company Era  
1888-1894, The North American Phonograph Company Era CD Price: $15.00
Item: CD-bwNA

Experience the beginnings of the commercial phonograph industry as the North American Phonograph Company and its regional companies created the recorded music America listened to. The bulk of these recordings were intended for coin-in-the-slot "nickelodeons" or exhibition purposes, as phonographs were not yet economically practical in most homes.
