Transcript of the original liner notes (in Dutch language)

Toen Thomas Aiva Edison in 1877 zijn fonograaf bouwde,waar-mee voor het eerst in de geschiedenis geluid kon worden vastgelegd en weer gereproduceerd, dacht hij niet aan muziek in de eerste plaats. Op zijn lijstje van de mogelijkheden van zijn nieuwe uitvinding stonden het onderricht in de welsprekendheid en het schrijver] van brieven zonder de hulp van een stenograaf hoger genoteerd dan het weergeven van muziek. Toch zou het voornamelijk de muziek zijn, die van Edisons uitvinding zou profiteren. Naast de veel gevraagde populaire muziek zijn ook tal van onbekende muzikale gebieden met behulp van de grammofoonplaat en musicassetto ontgonnen. De eerste primitieve cilind, opname is uitgegroeid tot een wereldomvattende fonografische Industrie, met alle artistieke, culturele, commerciële en sociale aspecten van dien.

De Nederlandse Vereniging van Producenten en importeurs van beeld- en geluidsdragers, kortweg NVPI (de Nederlandse afdeling van de IFPI) Is bijzonder verheugd dat een groot eer, tal Nederlandse grammofoonplatenmaatschappljen heeft besloten, als hommage aan Edison, een serie langspeelplaten en musicassettes uit te geven, een gezamelijk project van do Nederlandse fonografische industrie, dat uniek is in do wereld.

De keuze van repertoire en uitvoerenden Is natuurlijk subjectief en ongetwijfeld open voor kritiek. Het Is immers ondoenlijk om een compleet overzicht op enkele tientallen LP's te geven van wat in honderd jaar is uitgebracht. Maar hoogtepunten zijn het stellig. Vaak ook grote muzikale momenten uit de afgelopen eeuw.En illustratief naar wl) hopen voor de vele muzikale smaken die ons land kent en heeft gekend.
