Beale Street Blues

Get Flash to see this player.

Sunday after dinner, the men and children gather around the AutoPlayer in the parlor while the women do dishes. The men adjust the knobs on the electric panels while an older boy stacks the card deck for Beale Street Blues carefully in the scanner on the right side. When all is ready, a last switch is thrown and the well-loved blues jangles through the house.

Classic sound and a classic song description, Henry. Made me smile. The women folk probably had the blues :-) Nice one. Thanks, Peter.

Wonderful Noise
There is a video somewhere of a 1907 player playing what sounds like the Tiger Rag to me.
Knocks me out... Thanks for posting... the Prof. who designed these things never met Buddy Bolden... but the sound is there.
