Thomas Edison 's invention of the phonograph cylinder kicked off the birth of recorded music. The first cylinder to be released was " Semper Fidelis " by the . Marine Band . At first, cylinders were released sparingly, but as their sales grew more profitable, distribution increased. These early recorded songs were a mix of vaudeville, barbershop quartets, marches, opera, novelty songs, and other popular tunes. Many popular standards, such as "The Good Old Summertime", " Shine On Harvest Moon ", and "Over There" come from this time. There were also a few early hits in the field of jazz, beginning with the Original Dixieland Jazz Band 's 1917 recordings, and followed by King Oliver's Creole Jazz Band , who played in a more authentic New Orleans jazz style.
