  Phonograph Record History
A gramophone record, (also vinyl record, phonograph record or simply record) is an analogue sound recording medium: a flat disc rotating at a constant angular velocity, with inscribed spiral grooves in which a stylus or needle rides.
Analogue audio recording onto a disc was the main technology used for the storing of recorded sound for most of the 20th century.
Such records were usually sold separately, in plain cardboard sleeves that may have been printed to show producer of the retailer's name and sometimes in collections held in paper sleeves in a cardboard or leather book, similar to a photograph album, and called record albums.

 A History of the Gramophone Record
The first records were on cylinders, the earliest of which were made by the inventor of the first 'Phonograph', Thomas Alva Edison in 1877.
The 78 rpm disc reigned supreme as the accepted recording medium for many years despite its tendency to break easily and the fact that longer works could not be listened to without breaks for disc changes (at 5 minute intervals for 12" discs).
It took many years for the 78 to disappear because the new vinyl records needed new equipment on which to play them, but the two new vinyl formats then were to dominate the recorded music industry until the advent of the digital compact disc (CD).

The recordings issued from the 1913 sessions were manufactured at Riga (Russia) as ‘AMOUR – Gramophone Record’ discs, and later pressed at Calcutta (India) - and yet later reissued as 'HMV' pressings from Hayes (England) in the 1920's.
However most of the important recordings that had been on the catalogues over the past three decades had been deleted, and despite the fact that new recording sessions were undertaken - the availability of Persian repertoire had fallen off by 1940 to a situation that had prevailed at the beginning of the 1920's.
Although the number of recordings taken and issued may be enhanced by further research and findings, in the main the figure of 4,000 titles could be considered to be fairly close to the maximum number of commercial recordings placed on the market.

Gramophone magazine has announced the six winners of its 2004 Gramophone Record Awards — each with its own knight or dame champion, a celebrity who will argue the merits of his/her chosen disc in a media campaign waged through the month of September.
In recent years, the Gramophone Awards presentation had become a gala event not unlike the Grammys, Oscars or BAFTAs, with thank-you speeches, performances by bona fide classical music stars, expensive evening wear and lots of promotional acitivities by the various record labels.
In early August, Gramophone announced this year's innovation: each of the six candidates for the 2004 Record of the Year prize now has a designated celebrity spokesperson who will promote the merits of his or her chosen disc on British television and radio and in the press.
