Overview

Release Date:02/04/2014;Notes:Vinyl LP-only release. The 78 Project is a documentary journey across America that records today's musicians as they perform the songs that inspired a century of music exactly as those works were originally recorded: instantaneously onto 78 RPM lacquer discs.
