A fun and informative little film— it has some comedic touches, but the depiction of early "field recording" is accurate. This is how it was done, and not only in America. In central Europe, the young composer and musicologist Bela Bartok carried an Edison machine all over the countryside of what was then Austro-Hungary, capturing the rural music of the Magyars and Gypsies. Many of their themes later found their way into his piano, chamber, and symphonic compostions.

Kudos to everyone involved in this project!
