** Transcript of Arthur Sullivan's message to Edison upon introduction to the phonograph:
" . . . For myself, I can only say that I am astonished and somewhat terrified at the results of this evening's experiment -- astonished at the wonderful power you have developed, and terrified at the thought that so much hideous and bad music may be put on record forever. But all the same, I think it is the most wonderful thing that I have ever experienced, and I congratulate you with all my heart on this wonderful discovery."

*** THIS IS A 19TH CENTURY FAKE!!! ***

WILLIAM EWART GLADSTONE - Personal Record To Mr. Edison (c1890)

From the Argo two-record boxed LP set that appeared around 1971. Research has shown this recording to be a much later fake. It is left here as a demonstration of how good fakes were. Such recordings were often used by traveling showmen to demonstrate the "marvels of the Phonograph", and Gladstone was a voice that the British were only too happy to pay their pennies to hear...

6. Kinetophone Cylinders



Picture of Kinetophone equipment, from George Frow's book "The Edison Cylinder Phonograph Companion" page 243

Kinetophone was Edison's attempt to introduce sound to motion pictures. Beginning in about 1910, it suffered from all the usual problems of attempting to synchronize a phonograph with a motion picture camera.

Art Schifrin presented an excellent report to the SMPTE journal (July 1983, pp739-751) on the history of Kinetophone, and the reader is referred to this publication for more details.

Some Kinetophone components survive, but usually as mismatched cylinders & film reels. These few cylinders, from the Edison National Historic Site give us a glimpse of what Kinetophone sound was like.

Copyright for these recordings & the descriptive text rests with the Edison National Historic Site. Please visit their site for more historical & early recordings.
