Edison's New Media. American Memory (natch) offers this sprawling archive of audio files and filmic material. Uncovered while seeking an archive of piano roll recordings, unsuccessfully. Also noted: Fiddle Tunes of the Old Frontier and recordings from the American Variety Stage: Vaudeville and Popular Entertainment, 1870-1920.

Thomas Edison would probably appreciate the fact that at least one human being (myself) has finally drowned in the Internet sea of InfoWonderful.

This is amazing -- the audio files sound far, far better than any other cylinder recordings I've ever heard. Try Zez Confrey's "Kitten on the Keys" (.wav file). Great find, mwhybark!
