• Addition to the Indestructible Cylinder Listing
• Upcoming Gus Haenschen Installment
Thanks to Joel Reese (Local History Librarian at the Iredell County Public Library, Statesville, NC), we can finally confirm that Indestructible 1363 — unaccounted-for in our Indestructible cylinderography — is “Narcissus,” by an unidentified orchestra. A revised version of the Indestructible file, incorporating this and other recent updates, will be posted later this year.
The eagerly awaited next installment in Jim Drake’s Gus Haenschen interview series is now in preparation! This chapter will be of special interest to ragtime enthusiasts and record collectors, covering (among many other things) Haenschen’s 1916 Columbia Personal Records, including the legendarily rare “Maple Leaf Rag.” In the meantime, if you haven’t already done so, be sure to browse the other installments in this fascinating series.
