Elephone Records (2)
The Elephone Records we produced by the Universal Talking Machine Co., Ltd., London. The company was formed on November 07, 1907 [1] targeting Indian Gramophone market. The label name “Elephone” is a combination of the first letters from the word “Elephant” and the last letters from the word “Gramophone”. Also, there is the image of an elephant with two gramophone horns instead of tusks on the label. The Company started sales in India on May 12, 1908 and offered records in... [more]

Gramophone Co. (3128)
The histories of this company as well as the history of the invention of gramophone record and gramophone itself are inseparably related to the name of talented inventor, engineer and businessman Emile Berliner. In 1893 Berliner had formed the United States Gramophone Company that located at 1410 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington D.C.. This company offered the first seven inches disc records in November 1894 on the Berliner Gramophone label. After various mergers, divisions, lawsuits, and injunctions,... [more]
Historic Masters (14)
“Historic Masters” are later reprints from the original masters of Gramophone Company on “noiseless” vinyl. This apparently makes them the best ever possible “originals”. One more merit of these records is indication of true speed of the recording that, as it is now quite clear, considerably deviates from the nominal 78 RPM.

Potter), существовал в 1939—1941 гг. Занимался организацией вещания на заграницу, прежде всего на оккупированные страны, в том числе путем выпуска малотиражных грамзаписей... [more]

Melodia (UK) (2)
"Melodia Records (MiR)" - a label with almost no reliable information (even its location is doubtful: United Kingdom or Australia?). We only know that it has released two 78 rpms of a Polish Australian artist Andrzej Jędrzejowski (1923-2009), who also has been recorded on Australian labels Carinia and Selecton. Maybe British EPs with logo "Melody and Rhythm (MAR) Rec. Co. Ltd." (also of Australian Polish repertoire) belong to the same company.

Nicole Record (2)
“Nicole Records” label was issued by Nicole Frères located in London. It specialized in producing of cardboard records with a thin layer of celluloid which acts as the recording medium. This technology was developed by the company in 1903 and successfully used not only for producing own records, but also for supplying the recording medium to other companies like Polyphon Musikwerke, Symphonion AG and Popper and Co. The weakness of this technology was lesser durability of the records comparing to the traditional shellac... [more]

Stella (Victory) Gramophone Record (2)
Предметом деятельности британского торгового агента по имени Leonard Joseph Blum, пребывавшего в Лондоне, были грампластинки нескольких марок. В 1911—1914 годах немецкая фирма Kalliope штамповала для него пластинки Stella-Grammophone-Record, Victory Record и Diploma Record. На британских этикетках стояло указание "RECORDED IN LONDON (или ENGLAND), PRESSED IN SAXONY (или DRESDEN)", что, очевидно, не всегда соответствовало действительности... [more]
