Gold Rush era recordings found on sunken ship

Three records and a gramophone have been found onboard the A.J. Goddard, a 110-year-old sunken ship.

Thomas said the three recordings, including Rendezvous Waltz and a rare 1896 minstrel recording of Ma Onliest One, were previously unknown to Gold Rush-era music experts.

“These are three new songs that we now know people were listening to during the Gold Rush, and they were playing it,” she said. “Ma Onliest One was the disc that was attached to the gramophone.”
