The Center for American History Sound Archives contain some 100,000 recordings of both music and the spoken word in a variety of sound formats ranging from early cylinders to the modern CD. Many of these recordings are readily accessible to researchers at the Center, while others will require transfer to a modern format. An increasing number of these sound documents will be appearing on the Center’s web site as they become available.

? and the Mysterians: An Interview [Side A]
Source:Vorda (Allan) Music History Collection
Side A of interview with ?, founder of Michigan garage band the Mysterians. Talks about origins of the band, possibly being the first Mexican American rock band, the making of their hit "96 Tears," his thoughts on being labelled a garage band and the distribution of their first LP. Sound on original recording begins speeding up to the point of unintelligibility about halfway through the tape, likely from low batteries on original recording. Pub version attempts to correct this, but much of this side remains unintelligible.
? and the Mysterians: An Interview [Side B]
Source:Vorda (Allan) Music History Collection
Side B of interview with ?, founder of Michigan garage band the Mysterians. Talks about the earliest origins of "96 Tears", working with manager Lilly Gonzalez, lack of promotion by record company, availability of master recordings, band reunion, changing name to "?" and working on writing a book titled, "Are You For Real?". Short section (less than two seconds) could not be recorded at the beginning of the tape due to malfunctioning cassette flanges. This could probably be corrected by rehousing the cassette in a new shell.
