(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.

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 (eleven 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 (nine months 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 (nine months 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?
― No mean feat. DaBaby (breastcrawl), Tuesday, 7 July 2020 23:20 (nine months ago) link
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.

Thanks both of you, this one feels like a big chunk of my life, and I really want to get it out there, without making a pain of myself of course.
After the news that my company is probably folding, I have to find myself a new real job now, so there is a danger of this needing to be put on hold. Really hope it doesn't come to that, but if it actually starts to pick up some of the momentum it's been losing since 2018, *perhaps* it can lead me into some archivist work instead of my current career, which I am burned out on already. Perhaps a pipe dream, especially right now.

'Listened to a bit — nice (although they could've found a quieter disc of "In a Mist")'
― budo jeru, Tuesday, 4 August 2020 21:27 (eight months ago) link
I have a funny relationship with old jazz people and 78 collectors in that I have no decent physical setup to speak of and am suspiciously enthusiastic about modern music. I actually chose that version of 'In a Mist' for its crackliness, the cleaner versions have some loss of high and low notes

had a lot of fun listening to this one. the gene austin / j.s. bach ending was a nice touch. loved the barbeque bob, memphis jug band, the ben simmons track (which i recognize from the "living is hard" compilation on honest jons), and the demetriades "misirlou"

The Rev AW Nix is hairs on the back of the neck intense.
There was a Washington Phillips compilation releasd a couple of years ago, which is essential listening.

yeah i'm beginning to think i've been seriously missing out on a lot of amazing early gospel music. i say to myself, i say, there's more to life than blind willie johnson !
― budo jeru, Friday, 7 August 2020 17:30 (eight months ago) link
i'm following up on some of the gospel stuff that jumped out at me.
all of the REV. T.E. WEEMS recordings are available on a document records CD (part of the "Preachers & Congregations Vol 7 1925 – 1928" comp), as is the late 1928-1930 REV. A.W. NIX material (the 23 April 1927 To 26 October 1928 recordings are only available as a download).
There was a Washington Phillips compilation released a couple of years ago, which is essential listening.
the 2005 yazoo CD comp "the key to the kingdom" seems like the best bet: complete recordings + pat conte's liner notes from the '91 comp + 4 bonus tracks from blind mamie & a.c. forehand. secondhand copies seem to be easy enough to come by online.
^ and all of the above is available on spotify fwiw
― budo jeru, Tuesday, 18 August 2020 19:19 (eight months ago) link
My main source for this stuff is "Goodbye, Babylon", a massive box set of early gospel recordings on Dust to Digital
Some other tracks are from "American Primitive Vol. I: Raw Pre-War Gospel (1926-36)" - an earlier single CD compilation on Revenant
Don't know if any of this stuff is on Spotify as I don't use it.

This one was a bit of a beast to make, over 200 minutes long and featuring somewhere over 100 tracks, but listening back it doesn't feel at all tiring or repetitive, there's just such a wealth of great music being made at this time. Also managed to find some radio test disks, which hold the whole thing together as if its a radio show.
Was going to post the tracklist, but it is probably too long, it's under the link anyway. Hope people enjoy!

this is pretty cool, Ben Webster does a pretty cool solo on it that hints at his later style. He used the same saxophone from 1938 till his death in the early 70's. He should be held as big a ledge as Coltrane imo!

We have come to 1929, the twenties going out with a crash.

I was having a bit of a break from ILX the last month so neglected to post this, here it is for completion's sake
This one has an experimental editing style, built around Dziga Vertov's “Enthusiasm” and Walter Ruttman’s “Wochenende” and a number of other audio clips from movies - it also features Deep Harlem by Irving Mills Hotsy Totsy Gang, one of the ten or so songs which have become personal favourites since I started this project.

an experimental editing style, built around Dziga Vertov's “Enthusiasm” and Walter Ruttman’s “Wochenende”
― budo jeru, Thursday, 26 November 2020 16:58 (four months ago) link
I thought so! However reaction has been suspiciously subdued - it is not really a relaxing listen, at all. Or it could just be that people have a lot going on right now I guess. I have just today reluctantly accepted redundancy from my job, trying to combine this project with a couple of other more obviously lucrative things (online courses, private tuition) to get by, it is going to be a bit of a struggle though, to say the least. I made an advert for myself, if anyone wants to easily share the thing.
Sorry, /blog etc., getting on with getting 1931 now, also nursing a sick hamster.
― discogs marketplace of ideas (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Thursday, 26 November 2020 22:41 (four months ago) link
frankly the editing was amazing. it's my opinion that all the mixes should be done like that. found it to be super engaging.
sorry to hear about your job. you now have +1 patreon members, hope that helps :)
― budo jeru, Friday, 27 November 2020 00:06 (four months ago) link
Wow, thank you.
Job will work out, hamster is looking better too.

listening through 1930 for a second time. i was pretty immersed in a task during the first listen. it's nice to take the time to consult the track list and jot down my favorite tracks for the purposes of further research!
― budo jeru, Saturday, 5 December 2020 01:08 (four months ago) link
Well there is a lot crammed into that one! Currently working flat-out to get 1931 finished, it is much more leisurely in its pace, though it has a very strong great depression / classic horror theme which has emerged somehow.
Also should mention maybe that I'm on the radio tonight playing some records from 1922 - https://centuriesofsound.com/2020/12/05/centuries-of-sound-on-cambridge-105-radio-episode-30-1922/

Just finished this one, my last of 2020
This is kind of the first one where I've really been able to lean into the "sound collage" promise to represent cinema as well as I have done music.
Themes are: Cab Calloway, The Great Depression, Universal Horror films

Hello anyone who reads my thread!
As a new year's wish, could anyone point me to anywhere I can get hold of this record in any form? (good quality digitized would be best!)
― ٩(͡๏̯͡๏)۶ (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Friday, 1 January 2021 13:58 (three months ago) link
there's a UK seller on discogs who has a copy in nice shape (with booklet) for £10
― budo jeru, Friday, 1 January 2021 15:35 (three months ago) link
Thanks, I've bought it! Now to try to get my record player set up to rip audio, can't be too hard, surely?

Here is 1932 - - - - - > https://centuriesofsound.com/2021/02/02/1932/ < - - - - -
Didn't post on this thread last month as I was doing a yearly "contemporary" detour to 2019 but don't reckon I'll continue with those, so chronological it is from now on.
This one is (of course) for the year 1932, and as the US record business was in the doldrums at this point, it's a kind of world tour, including a whole 25+ minutes of music from the UK, which is a first (and probably won't be matched until the 60s) and some amazing stuff from the Arab world and India.
So a three-hour audio collage, free to stream, one-hour preview mix available to download.
These take me forever and I'm trying to justify spending my time on them now my company has closed and I've taken redundancy (yeah I know, would be better to dedicate the time to jobhunting) so if you know anyone who may be interested, please do share.
Here is the tracklist, it has already been pointed out to me that James & Martha Carson are not even remotely from 1932, not sure how I missed that, but it will be re-edited at some point to fix that.

First Monday of the month, so here we go once again with 1933
This one comes with an anti-nostalgia rant as a blog post, just to sabotage any chance I have of getting a job on most radio stations.
If you like classic Hollywood, and especially if you like the Marx Brothers, this is quite likely the one for you.
Please share! This is hilariously/terrifyingly my only source of income right now.
Here is the track list.

Here is 1934, much less in the way of hits and hot jazz and much more in the way of abrasive records from places far away from the USA, I think it's not bad but would not be surprised if casual listeners are less keen.
