Another Music Post! ~Calcutta, 1902!

Finally, I'm finally posting a picture of the 7" G & T 78 I found recently...

It was made on the first recording expedition to India by Fred Gaisberg and was recorded on Sunday 16th November, 1902.

The title in English is "Oma Din Chalena".

E1052 is the matrix number and 10010 is the catalogue number.

(thanks to Ross for the info)

You can download the record here:

This mp3 has no enhancement/noise reduction or anything...it's the raw file (so the person interested in this record has a better idea of how it actually plays).

I hope this works...it's another first here.
