The weirdest record I own is the OKeh Crying record. Disturbing and just plain strange.

That is strange and kinda creepy. What was this recorded for? Art? Listening pleasure? (doubt it).

Maybe even more peculiar is Mozart's Ave Verum Corpus in Iroquois.


I had no idea there was even an Iroquoian-speaking recording industry. How did that one come about? And why Mozart?


I'm guessing it was produced by some Catholic church in Canada. It's a late 78 in vinyl, nice pressing, not a home-cut disk, but it bears no maker's name. I have a companion disk that contains, among other things, a Gregorian chant. The Mozart label is below, carrying number BM-1620. The other side of the record is numbered BM-1619; the companion record labels are numbered BM-1621 and BM-1622.

This 78 is by far my strangest, its just a lady saying hello and good day over and over. I guess the intention is that the bird picks up some of what she is saying. Seems somewhat useless considering you can talk to the bird yourself.

Haha I used to see these turn up at garage sales and thrift shops when I was a teen just starting to collect 78's.
Our family had recently acquired an Amazon parrot and when I ran across one of these records I briefly thought of getting it to play in front of the bird but decided talking to him myself was best lol
