Can announcements be used to date records? I have one that is announced from Edison's Laboratory and other Columbia records say New York and Chicago or New York and Paris. The Edison Lab one strikes me as being pretty early, or am I wrong? Is there a listing of when titles were introduced?
Thanks!

Thank you very much! That is exactly what I was interested in. Thank you for taking the time to point me in the right direction.

The valuable article which James has cited omits one stage in Columbia announcements, namely 'Sung/played by . . . . . for the Columbia Phonograph Company', without any reference to city-names at all. I have some examples of these which Kenneth Lorenz dates to late 1901 or 1902, so that they would seem to come immediately before the 'Columbia Record' period. They still play (as far as I can judge) at a fairly low speed, somewhere in the 120s.
