Would you like to be able to hear music that was played 60, 70, even 100 years ago?
You can do just that with these CDs that are created from our personal collection of recordings taken from original records and cylinder recordings. We have collected these songs, many from 78 rpm, 45 rpm, and 33 1/3 rpm records that we own. Then we carefully and painstakingly have put each track through a noise reduction process in order to remove as much of the scratching, pops, crackle, and machine noise as possible. Since these tracks are taken from well-used and very old recordings, many times there are still some instances of noise left in the recording at the end of the noise reduction processing phase. On these CDs, we only include the tracks that have cleaned up to the "GOOD" or better level so that the listener can be sure to have an enjoyable listening experience. Many folks from the "record" generation will even enjoy this minimal amount of noise as being nostalgic of the way we heard our recorded music back then.
Each CD includes some familiar songs but also includes many rare tracks that may not have been played since the time the original record was sold. We have had comments from many people that one song or another is one that they have not heard since their childhood. What a treat for us to be able to provide something as lovely as a treasured memory to someone! Hope you will find many reasons to enjoy these CDs also!
