Albion

Home Page  Records British Dance Bands Sound Files Contact Me
Albion records were produced by the German company, Beka from 1912. Some of the early ones are "John Bull" records, over-pasted with a plain blue Albion (see second scan). The others were an attractive (and very British-looking) dark blue and yellow design. Some of them say "Manufactured in England" on the label, others don't,  so I suspect some may have been made in Germany, though it's odd that the labels don't mention the fact.

The discs were sold on a "tally man" system, where the customer signed an agreement to buy a number of records (say, 50) over a period of a year, for which a free gramophone was supplied. The records probably cost 2/6 each.

The catalogue numbers started at 1001 and ran until about 1449 (the highest found so far). However, there are reports of isolated ones with numbers lower than 1000 (see below), which may mean they actually started at 1 or 100.

 

Most of the information here is from Frank Andrews, who has researched many early labels extensively, and whose research may be read in most issues of the CLPGS magazine "For The Record".

In addition, I'd like to thank the following for adding to the listing:
Mike Atkins, Greg Butler, Clare Caless, Bill Dean-Myatt, Graham Farnell, Norman Field, Pat Malham, Roger Mallatratt, richard Prout, Roderick Savage,

Where I have conflicting information about an item, I will show two issues of the same number and a note about the source.
