Peter Dawson Records Collected between 1990 and 2001 by Ian Calderbank
My main interest lies within the actual Gramophones themselves; especially HMV.
I started collecting Peter Dawson Records because he recorded throughout the acoustic Gramophone era
and gave excellent renderings of popular songs over the decades.
My idea was that I could play for instance a record recorded in 1913 on a 1913 Gramophone;
The sound will be exactly as heard in somebodies Parlor 100 years ago.
My Peter Dawson Collection commenced in 1990 when his records
were still in relative abundance and good copies easily obtainable.
I ceased collecting Peter Dawson Records in 2001
in order to devote more time to Gramophones.
Over the years I have thought about selling my Collection and now have finally got around to it.
The Collection consists of approximately over 500 Peter Dawson's Records plus
just under 100 where he was known to sing as part of a group of singers.
Within the Peter Dawson Collection there are many rare and difficult to obtain recordings
including over 100 single sided records (Monarch, Concert, HMV & Zonophone)
Some records were released before "HMV" started using the Dog & Trumpet Logo (Pre-Dog).
During the acoustic era Record Shops sold records in cardboard sleeves.
The sleeves with their advertisements for Gramophones etc. are of interest
and highly prized collectable items in their own right.
The majority of the Collection is contained in these interesting record sleeves for maximum record protection.
The remaining records are mostly contained in the correct manufacturers original paper sleeves.
In regard to condition of the records.
I like all Collectors, upon obtaining a duplicate have kept the best for my Collection.
