10,000+ historical sound recordings are available online for free at the National Jukebox at The Library of Congress. The Jukebox includes work issued on record labels now owned by Sony Music. Sony granted the Library of Congress a gratis license to stream these acoustical recordings. Most of the recordings were made by the Victor Talking Machine Co. between 1901 and 1925. The National Jukebox will be adding additional pieces on a regular basis.
The recordings include old songs by Sousa’s Band, The Fox Trot, Ragtime, Early Tin Pan Alley and some Irving Berlin Songs.
