You Can Get the World's Greatest Music
3-4-5-6 Records to Each Symphony
BEGINNING WEDNESDAY MORNING, MAY 8th, you can obtain some of the greatest music
the world has ever known, at a price so small as to be almost beyond belief. This is America's greatest
campaign for good music, and one of the major projects of the National Committee for Music Appre-
This distribution is made possible through the public-spirited co-operation of the world's greatest
orchestras and conductors, and our foremost music manufacturers. All waived royalties and profits in
order to encourage America's growing taste for goad music.
Entire Symphony at Cost of a Single Record
You can obtain an entire symphony, 3 or 4 double-faced 12-inch records, recorded by the world's
greatest orchestras, under the direction of the world's greatest conductors, at less than what you would
expect to pay for a single record.
At a bare fraction of what you ordinarily expect to pay, you can place in your home 12 immortal
symphonic masterpieces -complete symphonies and symphonic masterpieces of Bach, Beethoven, Brahms,
Mozart, Schubert, Wagner, Tschaikowsky, Hadyn, Debussy and Franck. In the lower left corner of this
page, note the 12 symphonies that you can apply for and receive.
In waiving their royalties, and thus making this distribution possible, the world-famous orchestras
and conductors that made the recordings stipulated that their names not be used for advertising and that
the symphonies be distributed through schools or music clubs or by some method other than customary
retail channels in order not to influence the commercial aspect of their other recordings, always considered
among the very finest in the world.
Wednesday, May 8th, at 9 a.in.
The 12 symphonies embraced in this good-music
campaign will be distributed beginning Wednesday,
May 8th, at 9 a.m. Distribution headquarters are
now located at 601 E. William Street, Ann Arbor,
Michigan. At this location, you can call or send for
your- records, or a record-player if you desire one.
On Wednesday the first 8 symphonies in this offer
as set forth below under the heading "This Is How You
Get Your Records," are available. Beginning next
Saturday, May 11th, you can obtain Brahms' Sym-
phony No. 2 in D Major, and at weekly intervals
thereafter, the balance of the symphonies. The first
gymphony is Schubert's Symphony No. 8 -in B Minor,
the beautiful "Unfinished," which comes to you com-
plete in 3 double-faced 12-inch records, six recordings.

Franck D Minor Symphony, on account of its length,
is divided into two units, each unit consisting of three

unit is the same as for any other three-record group.
A quantity of de luxe records, known as Philharmonic
Transcriptions, and enclosed in record albums, de-
signed individually for each particular symphony, is
available at a slightly higher price. Sales tax should be
added to the foregoing prices.

enables these records to be played through the loud-

require a means of playing records, and is available
with your first or any succeeding symphonic unit. The
player can be obtained for $4.75. A more elaborate
instrument, the Symphonic De Luxe Model, enclosed
