British Library - Digital Collection

Post by jserraglio » Fri Mar 15, 2019 2:40 pm

Hundreds of early acoustic and electrical shellacs and pre-1957 LPs featuring UK artists with discog info. Outside the EU you have to use a VPN. I just use Opera and toggle the VPN switch ON in the address bar of that browser.

Most interesting. I'm going to look into this further. I looked at some of the files. Quite a lot of material available.

Unfortunately the site clearly states that the recordings can only be played by "anyone in the European Union."

Too bad! :cry:

Using the Opera browser from the Americas with VPN enabled in Settings (Win) / Preferences (Mac) and the VPN switch in the address bar toggled on, one easily plays any of those EU limited files! When done just toggle the VPN switch off right in the address bar.
