It's a snowy day here in wherever I am. So here's some stuff to listen to. Maybe call it the first pile records blog compilation. I'm making it up right now. These songs are taken from's 78/ cylinder recording archive. I guess you'd consider it mostly big band stuff, old folk, jazz, blues, mountain scruff or I don't even know. Features recordings from the late 1890's to the late 1930's.
