Cylinder recordings, which predated vinyl records, were the first commercially produced sound recordings of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. On this site, hosted by the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) Cylinder Audio Archive, readers will find more than 10,000 cylinder recordings that cover the gamut, from popular songs to vaudeville acts to opera, and more. To scout the site, readers may like to select Discover, which navigates to a Browse Collection page where readers will find the entire collection divided up by Genre (Band Music, Cakewalks, Carols, Fiddle Tunes, etc.), Instruments (Accordion, Bagpipes, Banjo, etc.), Topical Subject (Baseball, Disasters, Prohibition, etc.), and Ethnic and Foreign Cylinders (Argentine, Austrian, Balkan, etc.). Readers may also use the excellent search function to locate a specific cylinder by keyword, author, title, subject, year, or UCSB call number. Indeed, the UCSB Cylinder Audio Archive is a well-organized and wonderful peek into America's musical and cultural past.
