Joe Bussard's Vintage 78s


Joe Bussard has spent a lifetime pursuing rare surviving examples of early 20th century American music. His private archive contains more than 25,000 obscure recordings from the golden age of old-time music. Now he shares it with the world through custom-made tapes and pre-recorded CD's of his vintage 78s

You can order custom tapes at Joe's site here. Perhaps Steve Jobs is on to something when he suggest monetizing the back catalog of old music presently wasting away in the the big labels' vaults.

Dear Joe, I wonder if you could help me. My mother used to sing songs to all of her babies as she rocked them to sleep. They were the sad songs of the depression and railroad. I can remember some of the words but not the whole song and I really want to find them. If I gave you the words that I know, would you be able to tell me the name of the songs and where I could find them?
