After many years collecting
flamenco 78 rpm records and phonograph cylinders, I
set up carlosmb 78 rpm Records & Cylinders in
2000. My goal since then has been to distribute all
the items that are not part of my personal
collection, especially the ones that were produced
in Spain. Since then, many thousand 78 rpm records
have been sold worldwide.
My personal collection is still growing with those
flamenco recordings that are still missing in my
collection. I consider that every collection should
always be evolving by acquiring new items and
developing all the measures that need to be
implemented to increase its quality.
If you own any flamenco 78 rpm records and you are
considering to sell them, please contact me. I could
be interested in them, if so you will receive an
excellent offer. Even more if you own phonograph
cylinders. In this
flamenco singers list you will find some of
the flamenco singers which recordings I am looking
for (in red the ones I am mostly interested in), if
you own a recording of any of these singers, please
contact me. Finally, if you are not accustomed to
flamenco, please note that the records are usually
sung with guitar accompaniment. In this flamenco
you will find the titles that usually are present in
any flamenco 78 rpm record or cylinder.
Another of my activities is to prepare a discography of all
the recordings that were released in both formats in Spain.
I began this project in 1995, as I always considered that
this is indispensable for the better understanding of
flamenco music. I only use information sources of the
highest possible quality: the records themselves and the
original documentation from the past.
Finally, I also organize different activities related to
flamenco. As President of the Círculo Flamenco de Madrid,
and with the Board of Directors and other members, we
promote high quality flamenco activities in Madrid. Likewise,
I am the flamenco consultant at the Berlin Café, where I
coordinate the “I Ciclo Gran Flamenco”.
