    I love that the Library of Congress saved these and made them publicly available in the aptly-named National Jukebox.

    I definitely like the fact that the LOC did this. I know that they've been building the collection for years.

    Interestingly, YouTube has a lot of those recordings, too. I remember finding the original video recording of Rhapsody, a little while back. Of course, the piano rolls that Gershwin made were converted into Yama Synclavier format and recorded on CD a few years back, too.

    Speaking of, the piano roll (for player pianos, of course) are excellent for learning about historical players, as the player piano dates back to 1863.

    Did you notice there's not supposed to be a clarinet on this recording - 4 saxes, but no clarinet.....
