Site Improvement 07.01.2009 03:37

Dear friends, do not be surprised that "Gramophone" pictograms have disappeared. The sound files are still there, but we made an improvement to the site by joining images and sounds.

All labels with attached sound are easily distinguishable by frames surrounding pictures.

The works are not completed yet, we apologize for possible inconveniences.

A.I.Zhelezny is with us!!! 30.08.2008 01:50

Dear friends, we are very happy to announce that we began cooperation with Anatoli Ivanovich Zhelezny the author of famous book Our Friend a Record. For many collectors this book used to be, and for many people it is still the Bible the desk book No.1. It was written 20 years ago, but not for one iota lost its relevance. They refer to it, they quote it, and even RGAFD (The Russian State Archive of Sound Recordings) took the book content as a foundation for the description of its pre-revolutionary funds!

This work is well-known, but probably just a few people know that for many years Anatoli Zhelezny collaborated with famous editor of "The Record Collector" magazine James F.E. Dennis. For instance, in this issue, entirely dedicated to Leonid Vitalyevich Sobinov, James Dennis gratefully acknowledges the assistance of Anatoli Zhelezny for compiling artists discography. A.I.Zhelezny helped to Georg Moll to decipher documents from his family pre-Revolutionary archive, including materials related to "Metropol-Record" factory; helped to Scottish musicologist Derec Hulme to compile monograph "Dmitri Shostakobvich. A Catalogue, bibliography, and discography". Author dedicated it To Anatoli Ivanovich Zhelezny; helped to John R. Bennett to compile 11th volume of his "Voices Of The Past", dealing with Russian records of The Grammophone Company. For many years Anatoli Zhelezny was a music consultant at the Kiev Motion Pictures Studio, he supplied records from his collection for musical illustrations of movies. He was leading author of the Catalogue-Newsletter of Melodia firm.

Just a few days ago Anatoli Zhelezny has finished large project a collection of discographies Voices Preserved by Phonograph Record 1899-1915. It has about 240 discographies of singers, and about 50 discographies of writers, poets, and actors. We hope that this collection will see the light of day soon.

It is difficult to express in words our emotions when Anatoli Zhelezny agreed to publish on our site his materials - the results of systematization of all his old notes for the 30 years period! Among the first ones he sorted-out and typed into computer materials about "The Association of V.I. Rebikoff and Co."that we offer to you now.

We just finished website modification it is possible now to post comments on articles published on our website. Please do not miss this opportunity Anatoli Zhelezny as well as all visitors will be happy to read your feedback.

The Collectors Guide to Gramophone Company Record Labels 1898-1925. 29.06.2008 20:15

Dear friends, we are very happy to announce that we came to agreement with  Dr. Howard S. Friedman  about translation of his book "The Collector's Guide to Gramophone Company Record Labels 1898-1925" on Russian language and publishing it on our website. Since it is a voluminous work (more than 250 pages), the translation may take quite a while, especially if it will be performed solely by the editorial staff. In order to speed up the process we are looking for help from any interested party. Everyone can join the team! Even if your Russian is not quite perfect - we will always be here to help. Besides the satisfaction of participation in interesting and useful international project, you will have an excellent opportunity to perfect your Russian language as well as gain the experience of a translator. In our turn, we promise to provide translator's names for each chapter; however that's all that we can offer in exchange - there is no monetary reward. Yet, if you think that money is not everything in this world, if you have time and keen interest to participate in this task, please let us know. We will be happy to receive any help.
