Christmas 78s, Part 1: 1911-1925!

Just in time for the 2015 Honda Days, fifteen 78s from my collection, ripped and restored by me with my MAGIX Audio Cleaning Lab MX program.  In 1925, the Shannon Quartet was about to become The Revelers.  Meanwhile, The Columbia Quartette is better known to us shellac collectors as The Peerless Quartette:

I blog on the edge....

And I just found a slew of 12" Christmas 78s I'd forgotten I had. Well, 20, maybe, if not a slew.

Come on, Lee, everyone knows a slew is 22 or more. Didn't you learn anything in school?
