The Gramophone Company's Indian Recordings, 1908-1910 - Michael Kinnear








A complete numerical catalogue, by matrix serials, of Indian Gramophone recordings made from 1908 to 1910, detailing all known and traced recordings by The Gramophone Company, Ltd., in  India.

This is the second volume in the series of discographical studies on the recordings taken in India and released by The Gramophone Company, Ltd., of Indian repertoires, together with a detailed historical examination of the development of the sound recording industry in India up to 1914.

The historical background attempts to provide an in-depth view of how the sound recording industry in India was established and developed along with information about the several recording sessions described in the discography.

The Appendix defines the block numbering system used by The Gramophone Company, Ltd., to catalogue the recordings that were issued, un-issued or otherwise transferred to another series, between 1899 and 1930, for all recordings that might be classified as Eastern or Oriental.  Essentially the block numbering system applies to all repertoires, which are written in non-Roman script.

With appendices on numbering blocks and matrix serials.
