Description

Actionable Offenses / Various on CD

Newly discovered recordings, presented in entirety. Hear, uncut and uncensored what was then, new technology made possible and the protectors of public morals made illegal. These are the surviving wax recordings that were vehemently hunted down and destroyed by Anthony Comstock's defenders of decency. These late Victorian performances are indecent even by today's standards. And while not for mixed company they represent the coarse language and crude humor of the period. They are stories that were told readily in bars, yet became legally actionable when fixed in wax and played on a phonograph in the same bar. Until now, technology wasn't available to digitally capture these recordings without destroying the original wax recordings.
