Edison Diamond Disc Foxtrots

Description

Edison Diamond Disc Foxtrots

The most popular series of recordings from the Thomas Edison Company were the “Diamond Disc” records. These vertically cut or “Hill and Dale” records were not compatible with other manufactures record players but Edison felt they had a superior sound which consumers would find more appealing than the competition. Many famous artists appeared on the “Diamond Disc” label and almost all of the recordings have been previously released to the public. This CD contains a sampling of the kind of danceable “Fox Trots” that was typical of the Diamond Disc series.
