The Gramophone Company’s Persian Recordings 1899-1934
By: Michael Kinnear
16 + 219 Pages 
REVISED, CORRECTED and EXPANDED Edition

A Complete Numerical Catalogue, by matrix serials, of Persian recordings made from 1899 to 1934, by The Gramophone Company, Limited, together with a Supplement of recordings made by Columbia Graphophone Company, Limited, from 1928 to 1934.  With appendices on numbering blocks and matrix serials with illustrations in the text.

Between 1935 and 1947, there were no recording sessions undertaken in Iran by Electric and Musical Industries, Limited, or its associate companies.  However, in 1947, the company arranged for some six hundred recordings to be taken under the auspices of Sherkat Sowt Iran, Limited, of Teheran.  Approximately two hundred recordings were produced equally for the ‘His Master’s Voice’ – ‘Columbia’ and ‘Odeon’ labels. The discographic documentation for the ‘His Master’s Voice and ‘Columbia’ labels have now been included in the Supplement section of this volume.

The Gramophone Company’s First Indian Recordings 1899-1907
By: Michael Kinnear
28+374 Pages
REVISED, CORRECTED and EXPANDED Edition

The Gramophone Company's First Indian Recordings, 1899-1907

 First Published in 1994 as: The Gramophone Company’s First Indian Recordings 1899-1908

Revised, Corrected and Expanded Edition with a Lacuna of the first known disc recordings of Tibetan performers

The Gramophone Company’s First Indian Recordings 1899 to 1907, is a discographical study of Indian recordings taken in London in 1899 for E. Berliner’s Gramophone, and at various places in India between 1902 and 1907, detailing all the known or traced recordings of several dialects and musical styles together with a study of the history and development of the sound recording industry in India.

This newly revised study contains numerous additions and corrections, in particular, to the variety of alternate pressings made of these recordings.  With illustrations in the text.

Preface to the new edition

When this work was originally published my friend and confidant in all matters concerning discography, the Late Frank Andrews, had advised me that the registers from which a bulk of the information had been gleaned from numerical registers originally maintained by the Hanover factory where the records were pressed.

Sometime later I discovered registers at the Dum Dum factory that gave a different perspective on which recordings were re-pressed at Sealdah, Calcutta.  These hand written numerical registers were difficult to read and interpret, however, when assembled, the information revealed that there were more reissued and repressed recordings made at Calcutta, than had been originally documented in the earlier edition.

All this information and some other detail has been added to this edition, along with a series of Tibetan recordings that had not previously been documented, about the 1905 recording sessions, along with some extra information in regard to the 1906-1907 recording sessions.

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.

Greenwood Press Discographies No. 17, Association for Recorded Sound Collections Discographic Reference

This exhaustive and complete discography of Indian music issued on microgroove discs and cassettes provides information on over 2,700 recordings of classical and semi classical music of the Indian subcontinent. It covers the period from the early 1950’s to the end of 1983 and also contains information on recordings from the early 1930’s onward that were originally issued at 78 RPM and have been reissued on microgroove discs. The main text of the discography is divided into five sections: Hindustani Instrumental, Hindustani Vocal, Karnatic Instrumental, Karnatic Vocal, and Anthologies. Artists are listed alphabetically and brief biographical information is provided when possible. The recordings are indexed by Raga and Tala (the melody and the rhythm), thus allowing comparison between different recordings of the same piece. An instrumental index is included as are appendices and indexes to artists, music genres and styles.

[NOTE] This Discography does not contain information about Cassette and Compact Disc issues beyond 1983 – but it does provide the origin and source information about thousands of tracks that have subsequently been released on Cassettes and Compact Discs, the origin of which is not usually given in the documentation of these more recent formats.
