These MP3 files from my collection and record restoration projects
are posted here for your enjoyment (or otherwise).


The files below were restored and converted to MP3 format from 78 r.p.m. records collected by my parents in Germany between approximately 1930 and 1940. The non-German records were banned by the Nazis at the time as being "degenerate, non-Aryan". My father obtained them by teaching English to the son of a record dealer who had them smuggled into Germany. (There are all sorts of ways of resisting oppression!)

The recordings were restored using Cool Edit 2000 and its audio clean-up and noise reduction plug-ins.

When the project is complete, the results will be archived as a two-CD set on the Wolf/media label and will be made available to selected relatives and friends.

Note: Right-click the links to download files to your computer.

These files are all mono (of course) and were converted at 128 Kb/s.
Each file is between 2.5 and 3.5 Mb.
