Back to the Oughts

Heather Green

Here's a little sweet relief from the battle among digital music services that are trying to trounce each other in dishing up copyrighted music.

Check out the Turtles "78 RPM" Jukebox. You'll find free digital, restored versions of what were apparently popular songs published by Edison, Columbia and Victor before 1926.

Why the magic 1926 cut off date? Because after that date, the copyrighted works aren't in the public domain....

Bonus: Turtle Services Limited explains how they transferred the records into digital format and "restored" them.

"Insect Powder Agent" will be the first song to go on my iPod. Or maybe "Oh Gee! Say, Gee! You Ought to See My Gee Gee from the Fiji Isle." But seriously, this is a very cool site.

This is definitely true. But remember how much we loved the Little Rascals, growing up watching the reruns!
