Cameo

Home Page  Records British Dance Bands Sound Files Contact Me
The British version of Cameo dates from 1916 and were sold by Gilbert's of Sheffield for 1/-. They were all paste-over labels using obsolete Regal records. The paste-over label does not show any artist names, just a description of the type of performance.  I believe that the Cameo label could be pasted over original Columbia, Columbia-Rena and Phoenix records as well. Sometimes, the label is just a half-label pasted over the original "Regal" name, and so showing all the details; it is believed these were exported to Australia.

Thanks to Bill Dean Myatt for providing the label photo.

This is a first attempt at a listing. Please e-mail me if you can help me fill in the gaps in any of these series.

My thanks to Frank Andrews in providing most of the information for this page.
Thanks also to the following people who have sent me more information:
Mike Atkin, Bill Dean-Myatt, Graham Farnell, Richard Prout
