Expansion of the website topic 28.04.2010 20:32

Dear friends, we are happy to announce the expansion of the website topic toward Soviet period. In order to concentrate Participants efforts on the most scarce and interesting records we are setting the top date for records of the state monopolist company Gramplasttrest on the end of WWII. However, this limitation will not be applied to the local plants that had their own recording studios. This limitation is also not applicable to reissues of pre-WWII records, pretty much in the same way as we always had for Soviet reissues of pre-Revolutionary records. The name of the website is correspondingly changed to The Encyclopedia of Russian Records.

What remains of the people when theyre gone? Love in the hearts of friends and relatives, memory, and of courses their deeds, especially those that were intended not for the profit and gain, but for the welfare of all people by giving away a piece of Self to the others. One of such deeds of Howard Friedman was writing of The Collectors Guide to Gramophone Company Record Labels 1898 1925 that he devoted the last years of his life. In November 11, 2008 he passed away, but the Guide is here, and a piece of his Self that he put into this work will forever remain embedded into its lines! Unfortunately, while the Author was alive, we did not manage to fulfill our promise translate the Guide into Russian language and publish it on our website But as they say, the beauty of a debt is its payment we publish in two languages Preface and Acknowledgments, Introduction and the most interesting chapter for all portal participants - the Russian Recordings. And it is only the beginning!

Filter 18.05.2009 21:25

We already described this function in the past, however decided to do it again in order to provide more details of its functionality and use. The Filter is located at the bottom of the main page of website as well as on pages of categories and search results. It consists of two pick-lists: Ethnics and Languages and Site Content.

Pick-list Ethnics and Languages allows setting site to work only with files of certain Ethnics and language (ethnic) or language group. For instance, if one picks Polish language and then click on Go button, the site behaves like no other records besides the Polish ones are present. Only Polish records will be seen in new arrivals, in Categories, in comments, as well in search results. If Jewish language group is chosen, then only Hebrew and Yiddish records will be considered.

The second pick-list can be called Site Content. It has three options:

Exclude catalogs - This option allows to exclude virtual records. i.e. those, that are the result of converting label catalogs, rather than real records. Since we plan to convert several label catalogs in the future this option will play more and more important role.

Only records with audio - this one even more strict option. It excludes not only virtual records, but also real records that were uploaded without audio. This option will be mostly appreciated by those users, who visit the site mainly to listen to the music!

Include everything - This option is used to unset the filter.
Congradulation with 110 anniversary! 12.04.2009 01:38

110 Years !

April 10, 2009 is the 110 years anniversary of the beginning of the first recording session in Russia performed by William Sinkler Darby engaged by the gramophone inventor Emile Berliner. This date can be considered as the Birth Day of gramophone record in Russia. However, until recent time, many things related to those distant events remained unclear. For instance, why traditional Amour Trading Marks were missing on those discs recorded by Darby? Or why not yet discovered at least one copy of a catalogue with those records? The answer on these and many other questions can be found in the article of the worlds leading expert in Gramophone Company history, the compiler of the Complete Numerical Catalogue of Russian Gramophone Recordings made from 1899 to 1929 in Russia and elsewhere by The Gramophone Company Ltd. Alan Kelly.
