Phono-Cylinders, Vol. 2: Edited and from the Collection of George A. Blacker

This collection of 15 tracks comprises the second volume of a two-volume set of recordings made in the first decade of the 20th century on Edison recording cylinders. The recordings are from the private collection of George A. Blacker, who also provided background information about them in the liner notes. Although the recordings contain surface noise, the sound quality of the Edison cylinders is "superior" in fidelity to that of disc records of the time. This volume includes a political speech by Theodore Roosevelt, a monologue on baseball by Miss Ray Cox, instrumental and vocal songs, and a song about the Benevolent Protective Order of the Elks.
