Old Time Victrola Music

Victrola Music Scene early recordings

Wouldn't it be nice to enjoy listening to tunes
that everyone was so excited about
in the early 1900s ?

Well now you can!!!

Take a fun musical trip back in time while listening to our samples. Every song tells a story as the music comes alive with timeless classics and little known gems. It gives me great pleasure to announce an offering of some of the finest old victrola music ever recorded off of an old 1918 hand cranked phonograph.

All of the CDs/Tapes you will find listed on this site were recorded live from old hand crank record players with the idea of reproducing the sounds of the "good old days" exactly as they sounded then. The only enhancements are the CDs/Tapes were recorded through a high quality condenser microphone to eliminate some of the noise and a compressor was used to keep the characteristic blaring from distorting on the master.

Currently there are 80 different CDs/Tapes available encompassing a number of different categories. I will periodically be adding new CDs to this site so if you have an interest please make a return trip.

( If you are unable to locate a song using the search feature that doesn't necessarily mean it's not here. The spelling for the title has to be exact; for example if you type in I'll See You in Cuba, the song won't come up because the actual title was I'll See You In C-U-B-A.)
