In a world that consumes music as files and in playlists, looking back at 78 rpm phonograph records is not just a journey down memory lane, it is a technical challenge that forms the basis of this special presentation of Wind & Rhythm.
This story starts in London with the discovery of vast treasury of old recordings. The treasure trove of old shellac records from the early part of the 20th century has been virtually hidden away, waiting to be discovered. And, faithfully recorded on them is the music of the Bands of the Coldstream Guards, of the Grenadier Guards, and of the Welsh Guards to name a few.
