Au Clair De La Lune (1860)

This is the earliest intelligible recording of the human voice: an historic 20-second version of Au Clair de la Lune made in 1860, 17 years before Edison invented the phonograph.

This one-sided 45rpm record comes complete with an etched back, a descriptive essay and a reproduction of Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville’s original Au Clair phonautogram.
