About me

Hi, I'm Robert! I have been a collector of 78 rpm records since 1964. Today my collection consists of about 20000 78rpm records and 465 cylinders. All recordings are vocal. My oldest record was made in April 1896 (a Berliner with Ferruccio Giannini) and the latest in 1958, I think. I collect classical singers (opera-, operetta- and concert singers), some religious singers and some recordings with actors, writers, etc. I am also compiling discographies on classical singers. This site will include listings of records for sale, discographies, photos of singers and labels and some audio examples of recordings.
