Antonio Hita Maldonado ~ El Flamenco en la Discografia Antigua ~ Book
An incredible bit of scholarship on some of the earliest Flamenco recordings made. Focusing on the work of the International Zonophone Company, the text documents any number of historic recordings, and along the way unearths a treasure trove of trivia about the artists, recording methods, packaging and distribution, etc. The Zonophone Co. was the first "indie" label in Spain at the turn of the century, and its recordings featured, among many others, Manuel Torre, Antonio Chacon, La Nina de los Peines, Ramon Montoya.... A bit heavy but fascinating. 173 pages.
