Editorial Reviews

Another triumph in Archeophone's celebrated Phonographic Yearbook series! Woodrow Wilson won re-election in 1916 over Republican Charles Evans Hughes on a campaign that boasted "He Kept Us Out of War," but at the same time Wilson was busy handling America's conflict with Mexico, preparations for which would serve as a prelude to U.S. entry into World War I. English anthems, such as "Keep the Home Fires Burning," became popular stateside and bespoke the coming tide of sacrifice. Meanwhile, the front pages in 1916 focused on new laws protecting workers and child laborers, while activist Emma Goldman stirred up the masses as she fought for women's rights. Fascination with things Hawaiian is reflected in songs like "Yaaka Hoola Hickey Doola" by Al Jolson and "Oh! How She Could Yacki Hacki Wicki Wacki Woo" by Collins and Harlan, and advances in wireless telephony are heralded and parodied in "Hello, Hawaii, How Are You?" by Billy Murray. Artists Anna Chandler, John McCormack, Joseph Cawthorn, Frederick Wheeler (aka James Harrison), and Marguerite Farrell make their first appearance on a Phonographic Yearbook. A stunningly beautiful 24-page full-color booklet with extensive notes and an historical essay by Gigi Thibodeau accompanies the CD.

I am writing the same review for all cds available throught Archeophone.
The entire series of songs from 1906-1922 are outstanding! Archeophone did an incredibly, difficult and outstanding job in reconstructing these old original songs from 78s and cylinders. It's amazing how many of these songs are still popular in today's era. The booklets, alone, are worth the price of the cd: informative and interesting reading of each year. One can see the progression of quality from the early years into the '20s.The only disappointment were the two volumes from the 1890s where sometimes the quality (pops and scratches) from the old cylinders is hurtful to hear, but still worth the price. The company has assured me that, in time the entire first two decades of the 20th century will be available. GREAT MUSIC for anyone interested in the history of popular music. The only shocker is some of the lyrics is definately offensive (racially) to the modern ear. The disclaimer by Archeophone is this music is included for its "historical significance" and to not include it would be not true to the era.

If this music is your type of thing (and of course, it isn't EVERYONE'S type of thing anymore), this disc is for you. Actually, ALL of the discs put out by Archeophone are fantastic. They manage to find very good-sounding discs and clean them up just enough to sound good but not ruin the music. (In other words, yes, there's crackle here and there, but at least the music sounds clean and crisp instead of muffled, as can often happen with noise reduction.) Naturally the older the discs, the less clean they'll sound, but they're all quite listenable. If you're interested in more of their CD's, look them up on Amazon or go to their web site (which is the name of the company, plus .com). They've got samples of every track on every one of their discs.

I have almost all of their discs, so I have this review up on all of them.
