Links to the biography of the owner, Donald H. Gabor, and biographies, profiles and discographies of producers, musicians, conductors, orchestras, artists/designers, and critics are listed in the column at left.


Links to the pages of several artists will also be encountered in the four general pages
after you have entered the site.

This site was first begun in 1999 and published in its basic structure and concept which is maintained up to this day.
It is about REMINGTON RECORDS, the various artists who recorded for it, the uniqueness of the label, it is about its owner and producer DONALD H. GABOR, and tells about the other labels he created. 
The site is updated and extended when eventually more details do become available. Links will be added and activated in time.


THE REMINGTON SITE contains historical documentation and is intended for educational and informational use only.
Images on these pages were created from the covers of recordings, material in my personal collection (magazines, program notes, booking ads, brochures and articles), and from material submitted to me by artists themselves and contributors.

Several biographical and historical data of artists, producers and other people involved are compiled from liner notes of a specific lp, old encyclopedia, magazines, books and many other sources. Various details have also been submitted by the artists themselves or their relatives, and/or several contributors. Data about releases are taken from old editions of a variety of catalogs, advertisements, booking ads, reviews in record magazines, all in my personal collection.
All rights (if not expired) are reserved, and remain with the various copyright owners, including myself.

Individuals may view these pages for personal and/or academic use only.
Copying and multiplying the contents in part or as a whole by means of photocopy, print and/or proliferating it by means of electronic carriers and/or via electronic media, without the written consent of Rudolf A. Bruil, owner and publisher of this website, is prohibited by international copyright law.

Some sellers on the internet ask exorbitantly high prices. Most of the time these prices are definitely not in relation to the offered quality of both engineering, performance and historic value. Most records offered are of course second hand and have usually been played on simple equipment with a ceramic or crystal cartridge with low compliance, as was the custom in the nineteen fifties. Therefor the groove is often damaged. These sellers may also have been inspired by the existence of The REMINGTON Site, not by love for music, sound judgement and knowledge (otherwise they would not spell the names of the artists wrong).
If the price is high, always ask what the return policy is beforehand. And: read what the description is. VG ++ is not the same for all sellers.

See my recommendations of recordings after entering THE REMINGTON SITE.

Precious mem'ries,
how they linger
How they ever
flood my soul
In the stillness
of the midnight
Sacred secrets
will unfold.
