WELCOME TO THE ENDTIMES SHELLAC RECORDED MUSIC PRESERVATION PROJECT
Hi ...... My name is David & these pages are mostly about the antique, laminated shellac on baked rubber records, more commonly known as the 78 rpm. Also included are pictures & information about some of the artist found on them. ENJOY
For the most part, the recordings I will be talking about on this site will be both acoustic and early electric process disc 78 rpm speed records. Also most of these will be laterally recorded records, as opposed to the vertical hill & dale recording system such as Edison, Rex, or Pathe manufactured before 1920.
My collection interests are mainly Gospel, Jazz, Dance, & Blues 78s recorded between 1920 & 1940 on certain lables.
I have been collecting these for around 45 years
Coleman Hawkins & his band
To the right, is pictured a radio station transcription, complete with commercials. these were used in programming before tapes & cassettes were available to radio station owners. They were made on 78, 45, & 33 & 1/3 rpm records, some of which are very interesting for listening.
ORIOLE was a very pretty lable and was available for purchase only at the
McCory Store Chain.
Keeps me singing as I go.
