Are proud to announce the issue of:

FONOTIPIA 1904 – 1938

A CD Rom based on the original Fonotipia Ledgers held at the EMI Archive and containing detailed information on virtually all Fonotipia recordings.

Published by Symposium Records.

The much expanded new second edition is now available.

The chosen format for this exhaustive work is Microsoft ‘Excel’, which will allow researchers to extract information simply and fast. It is fully detailed (including couplings) and covers every traced recording with a ‘Ph’ prefix as well as relevant recordings listed under Fonotipia issue numbers, but recorded by Odeon or other companies. Over 2000 unpublished sides are fully detailed for the first time.

This production has been made possible by what must be a unique collaboration by some of the world’s leading collectors. A special feature of the project is that the database will be updated as new information is received, and an appeal is therefore made to all collectors to check their own Fonotipia holdings against the entries on the CD Rom and report fresh information and any corrections. We may in due course issue a further CDrom.

The CD rom now includes illustrations of many of the singers who recorded for Fonotipia. These are from original cards issued by the Fonotipia company. You will be able to reproduce these on any good printer attached to your computer.


£40 plus £1 p&p (UK)

£40 plus £2.50 p&p (Rest of the World)
