Early Austin Seven Audio Recordings
Sample Wave format (647k file) (approximately 60 secs of the 'Austin Factory Song') please choose the Real Audio or mp3 format for the full recordings - Most users are best using the Real Audio format for these songs as this format offers the best compression and thus the smallest file size. I have also included the mp3 format for those people preferring this format.
The 'Austin Factory Song' (also known is the Unity Song) - Arthur Grudge with the British Imperial Orchestra - first performed at the Connaught Room London on the 20th of October, 1930. (information researched by John Heuzenroeder)
Believed to have been played in the factory to support worker morale?

Hint: Having trouble getting the "save as...." dialog box to save these download files to your local computer? Getting a new frame with junk in it instead? This can be a problem with some Netscape versions.... Just use the 'Back' button to get back to this screen and try holding the 'Shift' key down when you click the desired link. Win95/98/NT/me/2000/XP users can also right mouse button click on the selected link and use the "Save Link As...." (or "Save Target As...." in IE 4 or greater browsers) option to achieve the same result.
Thanks to Christopher Stott in New Zealand for suggesting these audio files be added to this site....
