Here are transfers of my three Zez Confrey acoustic Brunswick 78s, all recorded in about 1921, and all (of course) featuring original novelty ragtime compositions.

Yay! How great! Just like some piano rolls, cut by Scott Joplin on his own works, I guess! But times have changed! Maybe we'll develop some new recording method that is a bit louder than these current 78 rpm records! :)
