There is absolutely no question, Camden, New Jersey is the birthplace of the music industry. Without this the City Invincible, society would not have the disc record, the record player, the microphone, the speaker, sound on film, television, guitar and bass amplifiers, the drum machine and synthesizer; we would not be able to hear jazz, blues, country, bluegrass, classical and pop music at our own conveniences. The entire world owes a lot to the genius of Eldridge Johnson, Emile Berliner, and the hardworking men and women of the Victor Company, and without doubt, this company changed the world.
