The USSR recording industry was a state monopoly from until the late s. The Melodiya label was introduced in , but brought no change in the numbering sequence. As pre LPs usually appear as “Melodiya” in dealers’ lists, the same custom has been followed in this discography, and also for the few 78s. An illustrated history of the Russian gramophone record is provided by Vitaly Brousnikin. In the various manufacturing operations in the USSR were united and a common numbering system adopted for 78rpm standard groove records.

During , the distinction between various HMV coloured labels for ‘celebrity’ artists was abolished and most ensembles were given the familiar ‘red’ labels for which the DB series is instantly recognisable to collectors. It was also the first time that celebrity records were first issued in double-sided format.

The DB series began its life in the acoustic era but finished in the high fidelity, mono era of the Lp, spanning little more than thirty years. The complete series totalled closely to 10, titles, but spanned numbers ranging from DB to 21,, although many gaps appeared in this sequence as you shall read.

This can be seen by the variation in matrix numbers.
