Today's song is Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht, Getman for "Silent Night, Holy Night," performed by Ernestine Schumann-Heink in 1908. This is one of the oldest records in my collection, and was played using a soft steel needle on a Victrola VV-IX, or Victrola the Ninth.
This particular record cost $3 in 1908, which equates to about $90 today, and there was only the one song on the record. It was pressed on the Victor Red-Label, which was Victor's premium label for their top tier stars. It was also a 12 inch record, as opposed to the more common 10 inch phonograph record of the time, which would have also undoubtedly factored into the final price.
I hope you enjoy, sung in German, Silent Night.
