FIRST SOUNDS: Humanity's First Recordings of Its Own Voice

A really fascinating documentary about the recently revealed earliest known recordings of sound and how the tracings of sound waves on soot covered paper have been made to reproduce sounds.  It is quite wonderful.

Note the early recording of Arthur Sullivan and his misgivings about how much bad music would be preserved the next time you hear Ted Nugent or .... well, that list would be too long for an infinity of monkeys to type out.
