Older Than Old School

About as far back as I go music-wise is Elvis. Never been much of a Frank Sinatra fan or anything else prior to the mid-fifties.

But that was before the 78 RPM Jukebox and its collection of tunes from the first thirty years of the last century. These definitely take you back to a simpler time. For instance Snoop Dogg or Eminem could learn a thing or two listening to "My Dawg" by Al Bernard, especially the skit at the end, much like the ones included on so many of today's rap cds.

For the audio geeks out there, they also provide the technical specs of how they transfered each song from vinyl to mp3, though I don't have much of a clue about what "Edison Diamond Discs, 51106-L was transferred using a 3.5 mil elliptical stylus in a Stanton 500 cartridge at 80 rpm" really means.
