Description:
Listen to sound files of "the world's earliest sound recordings. These files are not excerpts; they are the full tracks as processed so far." Includes scratchy yet audible clips of a French folk song recorded in 1860 (17 years before the phonograph was invented by Thomas Edison), a phonoautogram recording of the New York City Metropolitan Elevated Railroad from 1878, and others. From a collaborative of audio historians, recording engineers, sound archivists, and scientists.
