Berliner Gramophone Co., which became RCA Victor (later BMG, Sony-BMG and Sony), is Canada’s first record company. Emile Berliner started making records in Montreal in 1900. The recording business which at first sold a few thousands discs went on in a short time to sell millions. Recorded sound with moving and talking pictures, radio and the telephone became part of the modern way life. The record company is the only one that was present in Canada for the whole of the 20th C. It recorded artists from all parts of Canada and across all genres: pop, rock, country, traditional, classical, jazz, and spoken word. This disc features major recordings of Berliner and RCA Victor. The accompanying booklet documents the history of the label, the evolution of sound technologies, the rich catalogue of its artists and repertoire and a social history of the milieu in which the company operated. The disc includes introduction by grandson Oliver Berliner and a song recorded by the inventor himself in 1924.
