AllMusic Review by

A fascinating piece of political and recording history, DEBATE ’08 looks back 100 years to the 1908 Presidential campaign, the first to make use of recording technology. This collection contains all the cylinder recordings of Democratic candidate William Jennings Bryan and Republican candidate William Howard Taft, which were commercially released at the time, changing the way that the political game was played forevermore. A wealth of well-researched background information makes for an equally intriguing part of this unusual package.
