Collecting rare ‘antique’ 78 rpm records becomes a new status symbol in Bombay
It was and still is very common for Record Companies to promote their latest releases through in-store posters, flyers and record catalogues. These publications were often only printed in small quantities and they would usually be thrown away as soon as the latest and more up to date catalogue had presented itself. It reached the number 1 position on Billboard and number 2 in the UK. Elvis Presley had arrived with a bang! This record was actually released to the public the previous month.

Re: year old 78RPM record. I only started collecting 78 records a little over 3 years ago, after buying an old wind-up Columbia gramophone at a car boot sale. Naturally I wanted some more records to play on it. By chance I found a box of old 78s in an antique shop in Eton, Berkshire, just opposite Windsor Castle on the other side of the River Thames.
In the box I noticed one of those single-sided Zonophone records with the Zonophone logo embossed on the unrecorded side. I didn’t know if the Zonophone record was rare or valuable, therefore I didn’t actually buy it, but I remembered it because I’d never seen a single-sided record before. It turned out to be the original acoustic recording on Columbia Records FB speed 80 rpm and has no lead-in or lead-out groove, but plays perfectly and is great fun. A few weeks later I returned to the same shop to see if they had any more old records, but when I looked through the box, the Zonophone single-sided disc had gone.

Between and , some , different recordings were made. Recording sessions supervised by the first eight recordists of the Gramophone Company and its successors account for nearly , of these recordings. A method obviously was needed to give each plate a positive and unique identification. Several early systems were proposed and used, but the volume of discs being produced outlived the practicality of nearly all of these systems.
The initial system was the obvious one: Gaisberg and the other recordists simply wrote the required details in the blank space in the center of each plate see above , there being no paper labels at the time. These details, together with the title Berliner or Gramophone , the Trade Mark of the Recording Angel precursor of Angel Records and Catalog Number added afterwards, then appeared on every pressing from a given matrix, since the plate itself bore the markings in mirror writing.
These discs also showed the dates of Berliner’s five patents see above , which did not include the gramophone patent No. This practice continued until the advent of discs with paper labels in January, Bennett lists a few 7-inch Berliner discs recorded as early as October 29, However, for a possible recording, see part 4 of this article.

HMV RECORD LABELS ON THE B- SERIES: 1912-1958.
For those of you who haven’t received this list from me before, this is a list of mainly operatic 78rpm records of which I have more than one copy, generally, because I’ve foolishly bought a second copy, not realizing I already had it. This generally happens before I get the result from one auction and have bid for the same record on another. I’ve got a rough idea of what any record is worth, if you have another idea of what it might be worth to you and then we can see if we can come to an agreement.
My suggested value will be given in pounds sterling and in the colour white.

In these images the front cover clearly shows “Price One Shilling” at the top – so desite the Germn language text the catalogue was meant for sale in the UK. An inside page shows prices for the various records listed in UK currency – plus a UK tax. So these records were clearly also sold in the UK. GroovingPict has correctly identified some of these releases as later pressings due to the UK tax markings on the labels.

In addition, the authors described the various designs of labels used. They listed 17 types. In April , by way of a small tribute to Frank and Ernie, I decided to try to compile a set of these 17 types for this website. Rainer Lotz Germany and Mike Thomas, progress was rapidly made. However, it also became clear that it was difficult to confine the label design just to seventeen broad types.

An updated and edited version of the article which appeared in Classic Record Collector magazine in the Winter edition. By kind permission of the Editor. Of all the tasks to be carried out when transferring 78rpm discs, perhaps the most difficult and potentially contentious is that of pitching the recordings correctly. The term ’78rpm’ is somewhat misleading because, as many readers will have found to their cost, discs in the days before LP were delightfully if frustratingly non-standardized, in both recording characteristics and speed.
Much of the problem stemmed from the fact that recording turntables, like all mechanical devices, were subject to manufacturing tolerances to a greater or lesser degree, which in turn affected performance. On top of that there was the question of maintenance.
