Re: Pathé Actuelle in Hebrew

I was told that Pathé had a brown wax series of cylinders in the 29,000 block. Do we know approx what date that would be? Supposedly, they were in Hebrew/Yiddish.

Thanks.

Re: WANTED: Yiddish, Hebrew, 'Klezmer', UHD&C - Cylinder Records

The CD Album from Archeophone Records is very well done, and as usual, their Liner Notes (an extensive booklet) is well researched and a delight to read. I did find out that Columbia's first "Hebrew" Selections (cylinder) were in a block, from 26500-26542, and date from c. 1901 (brown wax)...

Re: WANTED: Yiddish, Hebrew, 'Klezmer', UHD&C - Cylinder Records

Hi, Does anyone know when Columbia started issuing "Hebrew" selections (actually Yiddish) on brown wax? I see that Edison had a few in Aug of 1900 by Wm Dory. Was Columbia around the same time - and who were their artists? I'm working on a List of Hebrew Lamberts that put such songs on cel...

Lambert cylinder research

Hi, For a forthcoming article on the history of Lambert cylinders (in AP), it would be great to have some additional information. So far, the latest dated Supplemental flyer for the company's records seems to be Feb.-Mar 1904. Has anyone ever seen a catalog or monthly release panel after this date? ...

Re: Ravings of John McCullough?

I am pleased to report that I have now pushed back the first appearance of the 'McCullough Ravings' cylinder to October of 1888.

Anything earlier, keep me posted. The article will appear in the next APS (magazine).

Ravings of John McCullough?

I know that this subject was discussed some time ago, but I am trying to establish the earliest date for this famous (infamous?) 'recording.' McCullough of course died in 1885 so it can't actually be him talking, or complaining in the Bloomingdale Asylum. The earliest reference I now have is such a ...

Re: Edison’s First Patented Phonograph of October 1877

Hi again, I should have responded to this in my previous email: "solve the mystery of the title of Edison’s U.S. patent 200,521, “Improvement in Phonograph or Speaking Machine”, applied for on 24 December 1877," Alas, there is no mystery here and no one has been racking their brains over t...

Re: Edison’s First Patented Phonograph of October 1877

Hi Stephan, It is good to see this transitional Canadian patent get some publicity after all these years. Well done! But I am somewhat puzzled. Aren't your illustrations shown from Oct 1877 (in Canada) actually the SAME as published months earlier in the FIRST Edison British Provisional Patent 2909,...

Re: A Recent HMV Find

An invoice in the HMV archive shows that 100 large and 100 small prints were shipped to Victor on 3rd April 1901. The print shown is of course from a later shipment. These are fascinating details about Nipper's first days in the public imagination and a reminder that some (many?) old reference book...
