Editorial Reviews

In 1912, Thomas A. Edison conducted a European talent search designed to recruit vocal artists for his record company. Over three hundred cylinders of some of Europe's greatest singers were recorded and sent back to the United Sates for Edison's personal review. Before these canisters were opened last year, Thomas Edison was the last person to hear these 1912-1913 cylinders. They represent not only some of the only recorded examples of certain European singers active during this period, but are arguably the most vivid of any acoustic recordings.

By A Customer on December 26, 2000
In 1912, Thomas Edison hired an agent to make recordings of opera singers to be sent back to Edison for his personal "audition." Several hundred (thousands were made) of these recordings were recently exhumed and make for an amazing listening experience. Although these are acoustic recordings, the sound quality is unsurpassed - the voices crystal clear, smooth, and even with no audible surface noise. All of the singers in this compilation are excellent, with some wonderful surprises coming from several realtively obscure names. A detailed booklet with comprehensive biographical material is included. Until this issue surfaced, very few people besides Edison himself had been able to listen to these treasures - let's hope that more of these gems can be found!
