I've not done much work on my site over the past couple of years, so I've decided to add two fairly rare recordings for you all. The first is by Percy Honri - Popular Melodies, recorded c. 1904 and you'll find it on this page http://www.concertinas.org.uk/audio.htm . The second is the earliest recording by Alexander Prince (Tout Passe April 1903) I've located so far and its on this page http://www.concertinas.org.uk/PrinceAudio.htm . With reference to the J Collis Bird thread (http://www.concertina.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=16266) where I've listed all the Gramophone Co. concertina recordings up to Maccann-The Empire, March -No 9122 12-Sept-1900, I've located two Prince recordings on the Charm database ( 9135 - Under the Double Eagle/Cock of the North and 9136-Tout Passe both recorded 22-Apr-1903). Prince recorded four sides at this session, another version of Tout Passe that wasn't used and an unknown title - the surrounding matrixes are by other artists.So we still have 9123 to 9134 missing . 9137 and 9138 are Dutch Daly recordings that you'll find on the same page as the Honri recording above. I've got a double sided Nicole of Percy Honri that I'm still struggling with - its more like a fruit bowl than a record - and recordings by Harry Boyd, Mitchell and Shepard, and Bill Kimber to add, as well as more recordings of players already featured.
