Phono-Cylinders Volume 2

Just found this record. A re-pressing of old cylinders from Folkways. I transferred these mp3s straight from the vinyl. Below are mp3s of the record. (this collection may technically be still protected by copyright.. get it now before someone tells me to take it down)

Here’s a PDF of the linear notes with a history of early recordings.

Kuu Ipo Ika Hee Pue One Medley

Kuu Ipo Ika Hee Pue One Medley by S. Siegel & Marie Caveny

1919 Edison Blue Amberol Cylinder #3724 ( Played on an acoustic Amberola 30 phonograph)

The name of the song is Hawaiian. The song sounds more like a banjo number. apparently it’s Mandolin and ukulele duet.. The record skips a little in there somewhere.
