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.

Did You Know?
Cylinders are acoustic recordings--performers sang or played into a recording horn, not a microphone. Microphones were not in widespread use until 1924 with the advent of electrical recording.
