Our Catalogue of Fine Releases

All Volumes were 30 minute audio cassettes (all now out of print). Each is carefully recorded from the original 78 rpm disks, which are played on a genuine 1924 Victrola model 210. Several selections may be heard in our ultra-modern Listening Parlour.

Watch for a Victrola Favorites book and CD coming in 2007 from Dust to Digital.
