Library of Congress Publishes Recordings for Free!

The Library of Congress has created an outlet for people to enjoy old recordings in their archives, called the National Jukebox!

"At launch, the Jukebox includes more than 10,000 recordings made by the Victor Talking Machine Company between 1901 and 1925. Jukebox content will be increased regularly, with additional Victor recordings and acoustically recorded titles made by other Sony-owned U.S. labels, including Columbia, OKeh, and others."

I don't expect that there will be any Disney Records related selections included anytime soon! However, one can safely assume that there are numerous selections posted, that had once been on our beloved vinyl records. I feel as if they have a similar mission as us, in preserving these recordings for many future generations to enjoy.

So, if you haven't already, go start creating your playlist on the National Jukebox now!
