DeBrewerWhile researching a sheet of lyrics to De Brewer’s Big Hosses, a temperance song, the first hit from the search engine linked to the Library of Congress.

That got my attention.

The link led me to a recording of the song on the National Jukebox. That Internet resource makes historical sound recordings available to the public free of charge. The Jukebox includes material from the collections of the Library of Congress Packard Campus for Audio Visual Conservation and other contributing institutions and archives.

The National Jukebox can be found at http://www.loc.gov/jukebox/.
