This month’s transfers of 5,000 78rpm sides for the Great 78 Project are now posted.
Many are Latin American music from the David Chomowicz and Esther Ready Collection.
Others are square dance music, with and without the calls, from the Larry Edelman Collection. (Thank you David Chomowicz, Esther Ready, and Larry Edelman for the donations.)
We are still working on some of the display issues with this month’s materials, so some changes are yet to come.
From the Larry Edelman Collection.

Unfortunately we have only found dates for about 1/2 of this month’s batch using our automatic techniques of looking through 78disography.com, 45worlds, discogs, DAHR, and full text searching of Cashbox Magazine. There are currently over 2,000 songs with missing dates.
If you like internet sleuthing, or leveraging our scanned discographies or your discographies and would like to join in on finding dates and reviews, please jump in. We have a slack channel of those doing this.
Congratulations to B George’s group, George Blood’s group, and the collections group at the Internet Archive for another large batch of largely disappeared 78’s.
