Happy 169th Birthday Thomas Edison!

Thomas EdisonThis past week marks Thomas Edison’s 169th birthday!

Thomas Edison invented the phonograph, the very first device for recording and playing back sound, in 1877. Early machines were sold to entrepreneurs who made a living out of traveling around the country giving “phonograph concerts” and demonstrating the device for a fee at fairs.

Here at the Recorded Sound Archives, we have a collection of over 70 Edison Records which can be listened to online.
