APS EXPO AUCTION: Super Rare Edward McNamara Blue Amberol


Recommended Posts

Super Rare Edward McNamara Blue Amberol

A bird rarely seen and never in this condition, this Blue Amberol was produced in 1930(!) to train typists on the Ediphone. While this looks like an ordinary Blue Amberol, it is not.  The cylinder is very shiny, perfectly concentric (no warping), and likely unplayed.  It is electrically recorded and formatted for an Ediphone.  Its core is not white plaster and its box is flocked and oversize.  The performer, Edward McNamara, was a Broadway actor at his creative peak when this was recorded.
