    Over 50,000 Digitized Pieces of Vinyl Can Now Be Listened To On Internet Archive

    "Get familiar with the Great 78 Project.

    New York’s ARChive of Contemporary Music (ARC) has been preserving audiovisual materials since 1985, and a little over a year ago, it partnered with the Internet Archive to bring its Great 78 Project to the public. Along with audiovisual digitization vendor George Blood L.P. and additional volunteers, the Great 78 Project to date has put over 50,000 digitized 78rpm discs and cylinder recordings on the Internet Archive, which can be listened to in all their crackling glory.

    An ongoing project, the Internet Archive actually has over 200,000 donated physical recordings, most of which are from the 1950s and earlier. These early recordings were made from shellac, not the resin that records are made with today. A brittle material, shellac became outmoded around 1960 as it often creates unusual levels of surface noise and can quite literally break apart in your hands if not handled appropriately. Without digitization, it’s possible some of these recordings would eventually crumble and be lost to history forever...."

    Glad to hear that those old recordings are being preserved!
    DH & I received a turntable that connects to our computer (via USB) for Christmas last year. We have over 5 'milk crates' of LPs to convert and haven't made it all the way through 1 yet! I am looking forward to being able to listen to the albums on CD or my MP3 player. I will look into selling the records when we are done, except for my Elvis Presley Moody Blue album that is on blue vinyl. It has never been opened, let alone played. I worked for RCA records (in Toronto) in 1977 and purchased the album a month before Elvis died.

    I have my Mom's collection of 78's and would love to get some of them digitalized. Sadly our USB turntable doesn't have a 78 speed.
