(old thread title was now wrong, hope nobody minds my shifting to a new one for a couple of years)
Centuries of Sound is a monthly downloadable mix of music from a particular year (possibly this makes it a podcast, I dunno). I started with the 1850s and have now worked my way forward to 1917, the year Jazz finally bubbled up into the record, and the records.
Centuries of Sound - 1917
This one is a longer mix at over two hours and features 60 tracks, because it's an important year. There is a longish blog post on the birth of jazz recordings and various other supplementary materials under the link. I used to do packs of source files but found copyright lawyers sniffing around the site, so have had to stop them. I also have a monthly show on Cambridge 105 Radio and mixes for 2016 and 2017 which might be better places to get started.
There will be another mix put up every month until I get to the present, in just under a decade, hopefully.

This is the first and only WW1-themed mix. It has lots of Earl Fuller.

To expand a bit.mp3, mixcloud, blog post, etc. all behind the link. The street is a bit more on history than music for this one, but there is still plenty of very early jazz, Earl Fuller is the best thing on there, maybe, but the middle eastern and south American stuff is really worth checking out too.Tracks0:00:17 Charles Ross Taggart – Uncle Zed Buys a Graphophone (Excerpt 1)0:00:30 Earl Fuller’s Rector Novelty Orchestra – Russian Rag0:03:35 Charles Ross Taggart – Uncle Zed Buys a Graphophone (Excerpt 2)0:04:12 Original Dixieland Jass Band – At the Jazz Band Ball0:06:49 Wilbur Sweatman’s Original Jazz Band – Dallas Blues0:09:56 Rector Novelty Orchestra – Singapore0:13:16 Nora Bayes – Regretful Blues0:14:50 J.J.

― Siegbran, Friday, 11 October 2019 11:25 (nine months ago) link
Thanks Siegbran, don't really expect anyone to comment on the blog, last one was someone complaining about the "criminal" lack of Luigi Russolo in 1913 (there are no recordings of Luigi Russolo from 1913) - I can always see people are downloading the mix (on whatever platform) so that's enough for me.

New mix up! 1919, a hundred years ago.
I didn't have much to say about the year in general, so wrote an essay about James Reese Europe instead, you can find that under the link.
I also redesigned the main site, think it looks better / less cluttered now. centuriesofsound.com

I've made it to the 1920s.
This one features Mamie Smith, "Queen of the Blues," and the whole explosion of what is clumsily called "classical female blues" on wikipedia. Also Marion Harris, Al Jolson, Lucille Hegamin, George Gershwin, Leopold Stokowski, "I Belong To Glasgow" and lots of early jazz.

This is Al Bowlly performing Minnie The Moocher! It actually isn't that bad, pretty sure Al doesn't understand what "kicking the gong around" entails though.

pretty sure Al doesn't understand what "kicking the gong around" entails though.
He recorded, what, 600 songs in the early 30s? Now, it was more common then to record that many songs in a short space of time, but I wouldn't bet against Bowlly having done coke!

Sure, but by my understanding "kicking the gong around" means smoking opium, and he really doesn't seem the type.

I am about to start listening to 1933 and don't have anywhere near as much material as I had in, say, 1928. I know, the depression wasn't great for the record business.So I've made this google sheet where people can add suggestions. I need not just music, but movie scenes, radio, newsreels, any audio which would work.If you want to suggest anything, just click the link, click 'Open with Google Sheets' then go to the 1933 tab and add away. Adding for other years is also fine!

Champion Records 16627 - (In 1935 the Starr Piano Company sold some Gennett masters, and the Gennett and Champion trademarks to Decca Records.) Asa Martin - "Jake Walk Papa" (Recorded April 5, 1933) The "Jake" in the song refers to a Poison put into early bootleg alcohols (triorthocresylphosphate) Organophosphate poisoning Ginger Jake.

I'm compiling stuff for 1934 now - not just music but movie scenes, newsreels, radio, etc.
If you have any suggestions, please click this link - https://drive.google.com/file/d/1SrCI54fjCioSVuyRLLckVlnuNDGalZaB/view?usp=sharing
Then 'Open With Google Sheets' and select the '1934' tab.
It doesn't work on mobile for some reason.

Collecting recordings from 1935 now, if anyone has any to share, I'll be working on the '1935' tab on here over the weekend - https://drive.google.com/file/d/1SrCI54fjCioSVuyRLLckVlnuNDGalZaB/view?usp=sharing (you need to click 'open with google sheets' - if it doesn't work then a comment here is fine too)
Also I'm recording next batch of radio shows (all here - https://centuriesofsound.com/tag/cambridge-105-shows/ - if you want a flavour of what it is) over zoom and need guests, if you know people who are willing to chat about music in years from 1917-1921 then please let me know.
Also also the 1924 mix is out on Monday, think it's a good one.
― Wuhan!! Got You All in Check (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Friday, 1 May 2020 11:27 (two months ago) link
Here's my mix for 1924, this time it's a little different as I've sandwiched everything between the two halves of the original recording of Rhapsody in Blue, and written a bit of a sprawling blogpost to explain why. There really is a lot of exciting music here, a lot I will come back to later.
Please share with anyone you think might be interested - it's a struggle to keep this going these days, pretty confident I will anyway, but nice not to post it into the void.

This is easily the best mix so far, partially because the dawn of electronic recording has provided me with more ingredients, partially because Dziga Vertov has inspired me to change the mixing style, and it's always good to mix things up a bit.

Just a note that while it's still free to stream, I got a little spooked by some things about lawyers coming after podcasters for using music, so the download is now just a 10-minute taster. The full dl is still there on Patreon - https://www.patreon.com/centuriesofsound - sorry if this seems money-grubbing, but really have got to find a way to make money from the thing which sucks up all my time, now my income is otherwise compromised.

Just finishing listening to 1936, and would like to report that I remain un-blown-away by Robert Johnson. Teddy Wilson, on the other hand! Why isn't he a bigger name in jazz?
Anyway, collecting material for 1937 now, please help out by suggesting anything not already on the 1937 tab here - https://drive.google.com/file/d/1SrCI54fjCioSVuyRLLckVlnuNDGalZaB/view?usp=sharing - looking particularly for bits of speech, novel sounds, brilliant movie dialogue, etc.
Also I've just started putting out my radio show on the podcast feed, if anyone feels like listening to me talk about things instead of keep my mouth shut as I usually do.

iirc the latter half of alan lomax's recordings in haiti take place in early 1937. some great music on there obviously, but also recitations by zora neale hurston among others, weirdo sounds, etc.
i have the 10xCD set on a hard drive if you're interested.
― budo jeru, Saturday, 27 June 2020 20:09 (two weeks ago) link
or rather than dumping hours of sound on you i can listen through and share a few recordings of interest, how's that ?
― budo jeru, Saturday, 27 June 2020 20:12 (two weeks ago) link
Sounds good! I am a bit pressed for time so 10 CDs sounds like too much, if you can send / share mp3s to centuriesofsoundmail at gmail, would be very much appreciated.

Just posted 1926
This one felt like a huge project all on its own. 1926 is the year electrical recording really took off, and this means there's a big uptick in the quality and variety of stuff available, so I wanted to do it justice. Writing a bit about every track in the blog post was possibly pushing it a bit. Here's what we have, it's a bit shorter than last time because I'm really trying to make tighter mixes.

btw just remembered the lomax in haiti stuff — will ILX mail you.
I did get some stuff from Secret Museum of Mankind, but also generally from a variety of compilations of old music from around the world, they are all a treasure trove but it's such a hassle trying to work out years of recordings, I end up guessing a third and unable to use another third. Ultimately there is only so much time in the day.
The most productive source of this stuff has been the Excavated Shellac archive, they have good quality rips and always do their best to work out the year - https://freemusicarchive.org/curator/Excavated_Shellac
Should also say Jonathan Bogart's Just One Song More has been brilliant, especially for (unsurprisingly) Latin music of various sorts. https://justonesongmore.com
Somebody also shared a big archive of old Japanese music, sorted by year. And failing all of these, there is this one guy on slsk with an amazing collection.

Nice, I have some interesting-looking tracks (mainly Middle Eastern) queued up already! For the record, the proper spelling of the title of the Ibrahim Özgür track is “Son nefes” (‘last breath’). Lovely little song, in surprisingly modern sounding Turkish, vocabulary and enunciation-wise.And Maurice Chevalier! Now there’s a blast from a much more recent past, or so I thought. Turns out he’d been recording from 1919 and had been famous ever since. Maybe he feels like a part of my lifetime to me (without really knowing his music) because (and this is a guess) his passing in 1972 was a big news event here in the Netherlands that made an impact on 10-year old me?

Corrected the Ibrahim Özgür title, yes, lovely track, such an odd mixture of Turkish music with tango and it has the intro from Carmen.I have doubts about the dating of the old world tangos here, but am trying my best not to worry about them now.
