A site for the spreading of forgotten knowledge in the earliest days of the recording business

a name nearly forgotten to history! the somewhat handsome man you see picture above is Mister David C. Bangs(1860-?). To the few record collectors who know him, he made dozens of records for the first disc record company ever to exist, the Berliner Gramophone Company. He was one of the first artists that Berliner's scouter Fred Gaisberg had decided to drag in to their studio in 1894, Bangs only recorded several records in bunches here and there from 1894 to 96, he was never a true "regular" in any studio like Dan W. Quinn, or George Gaskin.
