This was an odd cylinder i picked up some years ago - i played it and it's in good condition but i assumed it to be some sort of Pirate recording but NO it's not it's a very Rare "Norcross record" made C 1899

here's what i could find out about them :

The Norcross Phonograph Company was founded by Issac W. Norcross in New York City in the late 1890s. Norcross made his own recordings and pantographically > duplicated them for sale. He also marketed a now-rare "Jumbo" record, which was a standard-size cylinder. Norcross also was ttarget of several lawsuits brought by larger manufacturers who alleged that he was supplying pantograph machines to others who were copying Edison and Columbia cylinders. In 1908 Norcross marketed a Norcross Reproducer made especially for Indestructible cylinders.

here's the Cylinder
