How cool is this? Check out the Virtual Gramaphone: Canadian Historical Sound Recordings  on the Library and Archives Canada site.

Virtual Gramophone is a multimedia website devoted to the early days of Canadian recorded sound, providing an overview of the 78-rpm era in Canada. The database contains information for 78-rpm and cylinder recordings released in Canada from 1900 to 1950, as well as foreign recordings featuring Canadian artists and/or compositions.

Selected audio recordings are available in mp3 and Real-Audio formats. The recordings include:

  • First World War era military bands and popular music
  • Recordings from the vaudeville era of the 1920s
  • The music and entertainment scene in Quebec in the 1920s and 1930s
  • Orchestral, instrumental and religious music
  • Opera recordings by Canadian singers

Check it out!
