U.S. Everlasting Cylinders

US Everlasting Cylinder

I've got your number / Ada Jones. U.S. Everlasting Records: 385. 1908.

The U.S. Phonograph Company of Cleveland, Ohio, produced both two- and four-minute cylinders under its own label--U.S. Everlasting Records--and under the Lakeside label for Montgomery Ward department stores. Between 1908 and 1912, more than 1,000 titles were released in three series: popular, foreign language, and grand opera.

Like Edison Blue Amberols and Indestructible cylinders, Everlasting cylinders were made of celluloid, but their sound quality is superior to either of them.
