Sound Recordings

Scope and Content

This series contains sound recordings on 78 rpm shellac records of Maudie Edwards' performance of songs such as 'Barmitzwah Boy', and shows such as "Worker's Playtime". Also includes reel-to-reel tapes, including one of "Variety Playhouse". These items were not professional or commercial copies and had been annotated in pencil with their title/s. Not all material relates to performances by Maudie Edwards as, for example, there are two commercially produced records noted as having been sung by Sophie Tucker.


These items have been arranged into two subseries, reflecting recordings of Maudie Edwards' performances, and records owned by her.
