Alexander Graham Bell's Early Recordings

In the early 1880s, in an effort to secure a patent of his own after Thomas Edison's invention of the phonograph, Alexander Graham Bell made a number of experimental recordings using a variety of methods. New audio technology has allowed some of Bell's earliest recordings to be played without damaging the originals. In one recently recovered recording, Bell himself recites a line from "Mary Had a Little Lamb."
