Phonograph demonstrated by Thomas Edison

Phonograph demonstrated by Thomas Edison.

29 November, 1877

Thomas Edison demonstrated his invention, the Phonograph, for the first time on 29th November 1877. The inventor had announced it a few days back. The Lost Chord by Arthur Sullivan, one the oldest known sound recording that has survived to this day, was on the phonograph.

FYI, it’s now universally agreed upon that the oldest known sound recording is that of someone singing a French folk song, Au clair de la lune, on
Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville’s Phonautograph.
