Record your own vinyl at The Jacaranda for one day only in its 1947 Voice-O-Graph booth
3 weeks ago
For one day only! Record messages and music straight to vinyl at Liverpool’s iconic Jacaranda bar using on one of the world’s last remaining vinyl recording booths.
On Sunday 3rd December for one day only The Jacaranda is opening up their Voice-O-Graph machine to the public to record messages and music straight to a vinyl record that they can take home to add to their record collection or perhaps even gift it to somebody.
The Voice-O-Graph machine, about the size of a photo booth, was designed in 1939 and allowed people to record messages, songs and poetry straight to vinyl. They’d often be found in arcades, movie theaters and bus stations across the US.
Even at the height of its popularity there were less than 400 Voice-O-Graph machines in global circulation and now very few remain.
Over the past few years The Jacaranda’s Voice-O-Graph has been exclusively used on a very limited basis with artists such as Birdy, Tim Burgess, Jamie Webster, The Big Moon and Frank Turner all recording in the booth.
People that record in the booth will leave with their vinyl record and a sleeve, both with exclusive Jacaranda Voice-O-Graph branding.
People can book their 20 minute recording slot online now at jacarandarecords.com.
Graham Stanley, Owner of The Jacaranda said:
“Since the Voice-O-Graph arrived it was always our aim to open it up to the public and after months of tweaks, testing and getting the right people in place – we’re finally ready to do that. We’ve got everything in place ready for 3rd December to make it a memorable day!”
Jack Rowley from Jacaranda Record Store said:
“Everybody loves having something special in their record collection and what is more unique than a one of one vinyl pressing from somebody that means something to you? For the right person, I really don’t think there is a better gift!”
