I am migrating this content over to The Ernest Pike Wiki. Please come take a look! :)

OK here we go – here’s every download link to every Ernest Pike or Herbert Payne recording I’ve found on the web. The icons (which are direct download links where available) indicate file format (see key to the right). Recordings are sorted by credited artist (or production), then name, with year, record label and catalogue number in brackets. There seems to be a tendency for videoing 78s playing on vintage equipment and posting it on YouTube, so I’ve included a few of those; marked with the YouTube icon, of course.

As far as I know these recordings are all so old that they’re public domain now, but remember – I Am Not A Lawyer. Be that as it may, enjoy…
