August Mix

The Great 78 Project  have recently undertaken the herculean task of digitising 25,000 78 records.  Whilst that's a lot for anybody to take in, we've waded through quite a lot of them and compiled an hour of our favourites, with plenty of blues, R&B, mambo, and so on.  Of course, there's a fair amount of crackle and hiss on these recordings, but that doesn't take away from the great music.
