4080Records, thanks to some wonderful contributors, has been shown a website that will blow your entire mind.
Some enterprising fellow has been digitizing all his old LP’s. Travesty, you say? Sure, until you realise he’s been carefully categorizing and labeling them and putting them online as downloadable mp3s.
Aptly titled “My collection of 78 rpm records“, it’s got a ton of jazz and blues for your listening pleasure. As well, he’s got quite the collection of foreign music, including some folk songs from various countries.
As you all know, sites like this don’t tend to last too long, so head over and grab what you can.
