Great job you are doing here, Volstead! I am exploiting your site in full - I have downloading EVERYTHING! ;) I have one question - but I'll save that for a second submission. Initially I would like to say something a lot of us is probably thinking:

Your effort is important - preserving this old music - people ought to stop for a moment or three and ponder on the fact that unless guys like you are restoring and sharing this music then it might be lost in some relatively short span of years. Think about that, people! Keep up the great work, Volstead!

So - now - my question. You have posted records 1, 3, 4 and 5 of this otherwise excellent collection - "otherwise" as in "I haven't seen record 2"...what about that? :) Maybe you haven't found it yet?

(I bet you feel your record collection is utterly incomplete now that I have mentioned it - sorry...)

Glad you like the music. Before the internet it was cds, before that cassettes, reel-to-reel, and even home-recorded records. So I don't think we'll lose the music for want of a means to record and share. But when some careless fool neglects to pack an 80-year old 78 with care and it breaks - that's when we lose the music. Or someone has a collection of rarities but they die and someone throws the whole lot into the trash... yikes!

Fortunately there are enough music lovers out there who do take the time to bring these old recordings back to life. They have my everlasting thanks, and I'm amazed at what keeps getting released.

Plus, you can hear a lot of this music over the internet on stations such as Radiola, WAMU's Hot Jazz Saturday Night, the 1920s Radio Network, Radio Dismuke, and many more.

Thanks alot! You know - then I already have it here - I downloaded it on May 13th :) but haven't gotten around to fully archiving it. Good to see that 5 LP collection in complete!
