10,000 Rare Recordings, Free for Streaming

"The Library of Congress has launched “National Jukebox,” a website that gives free access to over 10,000 recordings made between the years of 1901 and 1925. Recordings, all from the RCA and Columbia vaults now owned by Sony Music, are available for streaming only. The range is vast, from Al Jolson to Enrico Caruso, Nellie Melba, Rachmaninoff and George Gershwin playing “Rhapsody in Blue” with the Paul Whiteman Concert Orchestra."
