Although I have some personal thoughts on Edison and his tactics when it came to giving credit to those that assisted him (e.g. Nikola Tesla), the 1929 recording originally done on a pallophotophone and the work behind restoring it (see: gereports.com and retrothing.com) is still pretty impressive. It is not what I thought Thomas Edison would have sounded like, but of course he was 82 at the time.
