Thousands of Edison recordings available to stream

Perhaps you could create a new Spotify playlist: thousands of rare Thomas Edison recordings are now available to stream online.

The project includes 2,400 sound disc recordings that have been digitized and are available through the University of California Santa Barbara Library Research Special Collections on its Discography of American Historical Recordings website.

According to NorthJersey.comthe collection was kept at Thomas Edison National Historical Park in West Orange and includes rarities, including test pressings from 1910 to 1929.
