A British Educational record, produced for the Anglo French Music Company. These records date from 1923 - 1926 and were recorded and manufactured initially by Vocalion UK (1923), and later by Parlophone (1924-26). The catalogue series was in a 2000-range, irrespective of the record's size or the manufacturer.
The majority of the records were of piano music, graded to match the examination of the Associated Board of the Royal Academy of Music and the Royal College of Music.
The records were of 10" and 12" in diameter; the 10" cost 3/6 and 12" were 5/-.

Thanks to Bill Dean-Myatt for the label images.

The label listing here was kindly sent to me by Jolyon Hudson.
