It is quite SOOTHING.
Watch it, even with the sound on. It is incredibly SOOTHING.
Love the dramatic start of this one (A.B.C Decca. Christopher Stone. Part 1. c.1935), the early 20th-century accent of the narrator, and the unexpected alphabetizing.
The close-up vid, however, prevents it from being SOOTHING. Still, recommended, if you are looking to close your day with a touch of yesteryear.
LOVE the white gloves in this vintage video. They add 100% more soothingness to the proceedings, which are incredibly SOOTHING to begin with (even with the sound on!).
Though you can barely see the record spinning, it is still incredibly SOOTHING. I would recommend playing it with the SOUND ON.
