Online source of old Edison Cylinders

For you die-hard old recorded music fans . . .

Probably not much in the way of blues here, but this article:

http://www.nytimes.com/2006/03/19/arts/music/19rose.html?_r=1&oref=slogin

mentions that this new website

http://cylinders.library.ucsb.edu

has over 6,000 cylinders from the pre-electric recording era (188?-191?) online for your downloading and listening pleasure. Reading between the lines a bit in the article, there may be some "roots hokum" in the collection, which is said to contain a lot of minstrel songs.
