Preservation Hall Jazz Band & Tom Waits On 78 rpm Vinyl

On November 19th, Preservation Hall Recordings will release 504 limited edition hand-numbered 78 rpm vinyl records featuring two tracks by the Preservation Hall Jazz Band with very special guest Tom Waits. Proceeds from the sale of this very special project will benefit the Preservation Hall Junior Jazz & Heritage Brass Band.

You don’t have the oldschool gramophon to play this?

The first one hundred records will be accompanied by a custom-made Preservation Hall 78rpm record player as part of a Deluxe Donation package.

Hey ho, Barry & Sharl might like this one. See details on tomwaits.com! One sample song called Tootie Ma Is A Big Fine Thing can be listened here in mp78 – joke: in mp3.

    Interesting since almost no turntables that can play 78 still exist. Too bad 78′s take a special needle, because it would be simple to write the software necessary to convert the digitized versions of the 78′s played at 45 or 33 back to their original time base.

    78′s don’t need a needle – they need a nail.
