A Meeting of the Limekiln Club.

The Pink Lambert gathers 22 of these rare cylinders-the first time Lambert cylinders have ever been commercially released on CD-and packages them with liner notes relating the history of the Lambert Company, from the innovation of the celluloid cylinder to the lawsuits that tore the company down. The booklet also includes discographical information and images of the cylinders. And since the songs are all gathered from a single collection-these cylinders came as a lot of 22-you can see what records an average person might have listened to in 1902.

Blue Amberol Records was the trademark name for cylinder records manufactured by Thomas A. Edison, Inc. in the US from 1912 to 1929. They replaced the 4-minute black wax Amberol cylinders introduced in 1908, which in turn replaced the 2-minute wax cylinders that had been the standard format since the late 1880s. Blue Amberols can play for as long as 4 minutes and 45 seconds and have a surface layer of the "indestructible" plastic celluloid, which Edison tinted a trademark blue color.

The first celluloid cylinders, Pink Lamberts, were made by Thomas Lambert and were bright pink, hence the name. Edison finally obtained the patent rights and replaced his wax cylinders with the more durable celluloid "Blue Amberols" in 1912. These cylinders were made of bright azure blue celluloid backed with plaster of Paris. Celluloid cylinders had a few problems too The plaster of Paris can sometimes swell, warping the cylinder, and the new cylinders required a heavier diamond-stylus for the best sound. Because of the brittleness of the thin steel tape and the tendency of the fine steel wire to tangle, other magnetic recording formats were sought.

It's part of the early output of the Lambert Company. You can tell because the patent date is earlier, showing the original 1900 Lambert/Philpot patent for the celluloid process. What's super rare too is the way it has "Lambert Company Chicago" hand written in the cylinder before the grooving begins (see picture). These guys were sure concerned about losing control of their technology-and for good reason.

Cylinders are so interesting that I wish I could refer readers to a definitive book on the subject, but books about cylinders are out of print. I'll give some background information about cylinders. Although the Edison company (it was the National Phonograph Company until renamed Thomas A. Edison, In. around 1910) was not the only company to make cylinders. Thomas A. Edison started it all and dominated the cylinder market, so I will refer to Edison cylinders often. Edison the inventor experienced more setbacks than the film shows, but the movie realistically shows the first cylinder machine as being crude and unreliable. Early machines consisted of a mouthpiece and a mandrel or drum around which one wrapped a sheet of tin-foil. The mouthpiece used for recording also served as a playback speaker.

Celluloid: Celluloid, the first synthetic plastic material, developed in the 1860s and 1870s from a homogeneous colloidal dispersion of nitrocellulose and camphor. Some historians trace the invention of celluloid to English chemist Alexander Parkes, who in 1856 was granted the first of several patents on a plastic material that he called Parkesine. Parkesine plastics were made by dissolving nitrocellulose (a flammable nitric ester of cotton or wood cellulose) in solvents such as alcohol or wood naphtha and mixing in plasticizers such as vegetable oil or camphor (a waxy substance originally derived from the oils of the Asian camphor tree, Cinnamonum camphora).

Thomas Lambert manufactured (pink!) cylinders made of celluloid; he advertised "indestructible phonograph records" with an image of an elephant standing on one of his cylinders with the words "LAMBERT: CAN'T BREAK EM" to illustrate just how well made they were! little more is actually known about Thomas Lambert. Lambert encountered competition from Edison when it came to patents. Why Lambert made so few cylinder recordings.There are numerous tracks on this CD that do indeed have embarrassingly dated language--blatantly, horribly racist and remarkably crude at times; but then again at least Archeophone Records didn't try to edit the recordings and pretend that racist attitudes were not prevalent back then.Overall, this CD highlights Lambert's recorded music of the very early 1900s and it points out that racist language (in the white communities that controlled the recorded music industry) was sadly acceptable at this time. This is a tremendously important album for anyone interested in or studying the history of recorded sound, and even people interested in the prevailing social attitudes at that time will want to get this OOP RARE CD ...
