14" Columbia Ragtime record

Postby Gmemg » 07 Jan 2014, 16:14

I saw this on ebay and really couldn't believe so rare an item would be for sale ! i bought it for considerably less than i thought it might make and thus I have (many) 13 3/4" Pathe's , 2 14" Fonotipia records and 1 14" Odeon record and now a Columbia

I have no idea how rare they might be in America but here they are Unheard of !

Here's the record

here's the unique 14" Columbia Label - note the playing Speed

Very unusual, especially since the label states that it should be played at 60 RPM, which should give it a playing time of well over 5 minutes. The first long playing record perhaps?

possibly - i must play it and see how long it plays for but i'm sure you're right
