Tslil (2)
"Tslil" (צליל) - one of the three oldest Israeli recording labels. The name means "sound, musical note, melody". The company was founded in 1947 as "Palestinian Electrical Recording Co. Ltd.", and since Israel's independence (next year) it was renamed to "Israeli Electrical Recording Co. Ltd." (But its name in Hebrew never contained the word "Palestine", instead it was "Eretz Israel", i.e. Land of Israel). Equipment of the company was used during the recording of the Israel Declaration of Independence (May 14, 1948; direct cutting on Tslil blanks). The company operated at least until mid-1970s. --Mike G. Jurkevich
