DGG has issued some discs honoring their 120 years of making recordings. There is also a 7-CD set of 120 legendary tracks. It was this single CD, however, that interested me most entitled "The Golden Age of Shellac." Back in those early days of shellac, lovers of music were getting as excited about having records as those of us from the LP- and now CD era. The present disc is in a gatefold album with an excellent booklet with pictures and commentary. Here is an index of what you will find musically, and it's quite a mixture on 21 tracks!:
