    Twenty-five thousand songs recorded onto 78RPM discs in the early 20th century have been released online, for free.

    They are the first batch of an estimated 400,000-piece virtual record collection to be made available by the Internet Archive, from gospel by the Tuskegee Institute Sings, to opera recorded in Italy, to novelty tunes by Spike Jones, to hot — though obscure — jazz.

    "Wonderful World of Jazz" but mainly N.Y.C.
    Listening to those recordings you could hear "Popular" music advancing in many different styles developing harmonies rhythms and melodies based on good theory not just "Beats".
