These old Edison records are for use on a cylinder phonograph. These are Edison Blue Amberol Records. They are made of a plastic material with a plaster core. These are 4 minute records and must be played on phonographs that are geared for four minute records and that have a reproducer with a diamond stylus. The five records are titled as follows.
3907 – Windy Willie - Characteristic March – N.Y. Military Band 1771 – Just Plain Folks – Descriptive Song – Ada Jones & Chorus 2063 – Virginia Reel – Nat’l Prom Band 3013 – Ireland Must Be Heaven – W. Van Brunt 4050 – Oh, Joe-Please Don’t Go – Al Bernard & F.Kamplain
They all come in an orange, cylindrical Blue Amberol box with the image of Thomas Edison is on the back side. All of the boxes have lids, 4 with original title information. Each record is about 4 1/8” long and has a tapered inside diameter to fit snuggly on a phonograph mandrel. There is some chipped plaster but none of the plaster is badly swollen and these do fit on a standard mandrel.
The records have minimal scuff wear and a few small splits on the ends, not in the grooved area. Otherwise, none of the other wear noted should affect their play. Their sound reproduction cannot be guaranteed, but from experience, these should play well if used properly so these are being sold as-is. The boxes show age wear. Most of the lids are taped or are in need of being taped.
Priced and sold as the group of five.
