It's rare to find any of these early Improved Gram-O-Phone record labels. Let your mind lapse back in time to when a young Eldridge Johnson was just starting out on his own with his fledgling Consolidated Talking Machine Company.

Eldridge Johnson's 'Improved Gram-O-Phone Record' label the very first paper record label and it was very short lived. I've found precious few of these in 30 plus years of diligent searching. Label is worn but still presentable. Plays through with a little nudge on my modern turntable tonearm. Intro grooves are worn and noisy as is typical for almost any very early disc records. This one is A-226, "DANCE OF THE HOBOES" by George Schweinfest. Over the years I've maintained a white knuckle grip on my early discs but it's time to try scaling down the collection.

Send a PM with interest. Paypal friends, USPS M.O., check. Shipping is included to USA addresses and my packaging is very secure for safe delivery.
