Hawaiian Love Song, Yodeling, and a Ukulele from Library of Congress National Jukebox
The Library of Congress and Sony Music Entertainment recently unveiled a new website of over 10,000 rare historic sound recordings available to the public for the first time digitally. The site is called the “National Jukebox” (www.loc.gov/jukebox/).
Developed by the Library of Congress, with assets provided by Sony Music Entertainment, the National Jukebox offers free online access to a vast selection of music and spoken-word recordings produced in the U.S. between the years 1901 and 1925.
As I am currently working on a our feature from the Four Seasons Hualalai, on Hawaii’s Big Island, I thought I would share with you “Hawaiian Love Song”, sung by Ward Barton and Frank Carol. This is a Victor recording from 1916.
