This is an interseting disc, the one where Edison Gives his "Let Us Not Forget speech, to the alies of WW I. I here this particular disc is sought after by colletors. Anyway when I bought it, I did not even know I had it, let alone what it was, since the paper lable was missing. (this is a latter copy, becuse I know the earlier pressings have the black etched lable. It was not until I was browseing thgough Phil O'keaf's private collection, listed on his web site, that I found the catalog number, that coresponded with the number on my disc. Paid $6.95 for it. Not to shabby, for finding this one by accident.
BTW: If anyone on here has the exact same copy, with the white lable on it, I would like to have a scanned copy, to print off to replace the missing one.
Got the Scanned copy this morning, Steve. Thank You!
Hi Matt, thank you. Eever, since I had, the reporducer fixed by George Vollema, at Great Lakes Antique Phonogrpahs. I have been able to enjoy it even more. The Sound Qualtiy is phenonmenal. It's amazing how clear the sound is, for being recorded accousticly
This particular disc is hard to find with the paper label, even though it was pressed from 1919 til the phonograph division closed in 1929. This apparently was recorded in several takes, as my cylinder version is different than my disc version.

There you go Paul- collecting for 5 minutes, and you've already got something that a bit on the rare side! Good one! ;D Thats one of the great things about this hobby. Theres always surprises and little treasures lurking. Until I found the OTVMMB about 6 months ago, I had no idea about some of the stuff I've had for over 25years. I didn't know I had the only known copy of a vitaphone movies' record, and a pretty rare chinese 4 minute wax cylinder, and if it wasn't for places like this, I probably would never have known. Its alway good to find out that you've got something that out of the ordinary. I've learned more in the last 6 months here and on the other board than I have in 28 years of collecting. Its great to be able to communicate with like minded people who are prepared to share a wealth of knowledge that you just wont find in a book.
I had joined this board first, when I started, looking for more information on the Edison Diamond Disc Phonographs & diamond discs. I only posted on thread on here, but received minimal replies. so I just assumed this board, did not receive much traffic. I never knew the OTVMMB existed until Phil O'Keaf, invited me, to join that board.
Between this board and the OTVMMB, I have received tons of information. Plus met some great people, who share my intreset in edison phonogrpahs. Had I not found, and bought my Edison Disc Phonogrpah, I'd probabbly, be still looking for another hobby. Weird how certian things just work out. I mean just by buying the Edsion disc Phonograph, got me wanting to find discs, and more inforamtion on Edison Phonographs. It's nice to finnaly have a hobby to really get excited about.
Steve, was kind enough to send me a scanned copy of the missing lable for my disc. I still have to cut it out, and paste it on the disc. I have even had a few people send me mp3's of edison disc recordings, and Bill Floyd was kind to send me a lsit of DD's that I might be interested in. I also get the feeling that, everyone on here was exicted to me a new person into this field, and just wanted to share all their knowledge on the subject with me.
Having the internet, is an even bigger help, becuse it allows people with simmilar intrestes, to exchange information.
