Re: Auction houses selling fake/ not original HMV gramophones

The biggest problem with fakes being sold as original is that the unsuspecting buyers end up over paying for a crapophone. In the early days of Ebay, it was possible to contact buyers and inform them that they were bidding on a crapophone. At least then they had a chance of withdrawing their bid. No...

Re: Can anyone explain this?

I lived in Hong Kong and travelled around China for nearly three decades. Times sure have changed. China’s rise is unprecedented. From no one having a fridge when China opened up in 1978 to now having the largest number of millionaires in the world. Its tremulous history has shaped what the nouveau ...

Re: WANTED: Al Bowlly - Midnight, the stars, and you 24700

Thanks Carlos for the pics. Can I use the French ones on my website?.
Here is my page on the track.

Interesting to see the Harry Leader version on Eclipse. I would assume it is a dub from the American version.

Re: WANTED: Al Bowlly - Midnight, the stars, and you 24700

This is a very recent pricing phenomena. It is a common record and there are various pressing of this wonderful song.
  • HMV B-6461 UK
  • Victor 24700 USA & Argentina
  • Electrola EG-3023 Europe
  • HMV EA-1338 Australian
  • BA-421 Austrian
By far, The Australian laminated pressing is the best.

Re: gramophones in films EMG mark 9

https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2amd4b Can be viewed here. What got me was that the Mk9 is really playing. You can hear the needle and clicks and boy what a sound. An EMG captured as it would have sounded in 1939. Even with this shaky footage and sound, the bass response is awesome. Plays about 1...

Re: EMG Portable Gramophone ? Or EMG Connection ?

The GOLDRING SENIOR soundbox is interesting. A cross between a Meltrope and an Astra. It even has what looks like a chuck like the Meltrope IIIa.
