Second Edition
 
A second Melodiya edition was issued, apparently in 1980, which contained 10 LP records. It provided two supplementary records which contained 23 additional selections, chiefly folk song recordings from 1907 to 1928. It also provided separate booklets in English and in Russian.

Hi Peter,
I am quite skillful in digital restoring. If you send me the raw material at yuri.bernikov@russian-records.com I can try to make it readable. For better result the scan should be taken with 300dpi resolution (or more) and stored preferably in TIFF or any other lossless format.
Thanks,
Yuri.

1899 misspelling 'Grammofn'
 
here's a repeat, as it seems to have been missed the first time around

There is (at least) one other design of heading on these discs ("E.Berliner's..." etc. in Russian). It has a spelling mistake: "Grammofn" with the final "o" missing!

Peter


Peter, would you please identify the discthat has the spelling error "Grammofn"?


Very briefly: the one I have seen (presumably the first design?) is:

20023: In my soul (Wrangel): Oreshkevich
[= Polish tenor, Teodor Orzeszkiewicz]
dated 2 April 1899 [Old Style]

Stephan, I live in Baltimore, Maryland, some 3500 miles from the EMI archives. I am in my ninth decade and a bit weary of travelling. I do my research on the basis of what I see in front of me, mainly the records in my own possessions and such images of related items as may come to hand. Do you have any other suggestions?

Howard

I can perfectly understand your situation now. The only possible solution is to urge EMI to start publishing their holdings in digital form.

Howard, as a serious researcher it will be best if you visit the EMI archive yourself. The answer to all of your questions is stored there. I will then be very interested to read about your findings.

Peter, you never answered the last request. You also said elsewhere that "Angels were added to London recordings." Which London recordings, and what are the dates, and when were they added? And lastly how can one tell an "added" angel for a normally used angel?

I would like to answer your questions in Peter's own words:
The famous recording angel trademark did not appear until the end of September 1898; the earlier discs carry it only when in the catalogue long enough for it to be added retrospectively (as a raised-embossed, rather than etched, figure). (Peter Adamson, The First London Disc Recordings, in: Hillandale News No. 207, December 1995, Note 36, p. 422)


Thank you for the reply. It does pay to read the fine print, not to mention the footnotes! I have some 26 Berliners, dating from 20 Sep 1898, with no Angel, through some time in 1902, all with Angels. The only raised ones are in July 1900 and following March 1901, with two engraved in August and November 1900. How does one account for that? I am going back now andidentifying the various E. Berliner's GRAMOPHONE logos.
