Chewy,

Some Edison discs are available from the Discography of American Historical Recordings.

Go here:  https://adp.library.ucsb.edu/index.php/objects/search

Select Edison from the drop down menu under label and hit the search button.

Click on "audio online" near the top where it says:  Show only discs with audio online

This will give you a list of all their Edison discs for which audio is available.

Next, find a disc that you want to hear (say Edison 2493) and click on the link.

This will bring you to a page for Edison 2493.  On that page, click on the matrix number link (3331 in this case).

This will bring you to a page from which you can listen to or download the sound file.

For this disc, you should get to this page:  https://adp.library.ucsb.edu/index.php/matrix/detail/2000151057/3331-My_dream_of_dreams

Happy listening (although much of what is on Edison is not of particular interest)!

- Jon
