Mine is an edison fireside that plays both 2 and 4 min cylinders, as you can hear the 4 min gear is a bit wobbly though!

henry allen orch on a 1941 swedish columbia, great sound!

stanley kirkby sings the galloping major, classic!

Last year I found this in a collection and was so pleased I almost dropped it! I knew this song and had it sung to me as a child, and this could be the definitive recording for me.

I love this record! It makes me smile every time I hear it, and I'm proud of the restoration as the original copy isn't the best! I'll post the original and the restoration on my forum soon and will post that for those interested.
