The Brown Wax Sampler, 1891-1903 CD Price: $15.00
Item: CD-scBR

The earliest commercial phonograph recordings and generally more primitive-sounding than black wax cylinders, brown wax cylinders carry a wonderfully distinctive sound.

Enjoy 24 brown wax "hits" and other historic recordings of the 1890's to the early 1900's – including seven recordings from 5" diameter "concert" cylinders.
