Citizen

Home Page  Records British Dance Bands Sound Files Contact Me
Citizen records are rare and rather mysterious. They first appeared in 1916 and were a Crystalate-manufactured product using a 3000 catalogue series (see first image). Judging by the numerical range of the known issues, this series was quite short-lived.

The label re-appeared at the beginning of the 1920s, when they were being produced by Vocalion and the label changed to a light & dark mauve design (see second example) before changing to the red and gold label seen here (third scan) for the last few issues.
The highest mauve label I have seen is No. 843, Please let me know (send a scan?) of any higher than this.

The Vocalion-produced Citizen records used a 3-digit series starting at 501 and running into the late 800s before ceasing in the mid 1920s.

As you can tell, little is known about the label, the size of the catalogue, or for whom they were produced. The Vocalion period used the usual masters, apart from UK recorded Vocalion matrices, there are Gennett and Vocalion masters from the U.S.

Here is a listing of the Citizen issues. This was produced by the late Arthur Badrock and much of the information came from Dave Lomax who, some years ago, turned up a whole boxful of Citizen records. Based on Dave's location (near Manchester), it may be that the proprietor for this label was also based in the north of England.

If you can add anything to this listing, please email me, also let me know which label design it is on (if known).
Thanks to the following for providing more information:
Peter Elliott, Graham Farnell, Norman Field, Javier Soria Laso, Dave Lomax, Frederick Murphy, James Parten, Mark Schuler, Ken Wiley

First the early 3000- series. All known examples use Guardsman masters from pre-1920.

Now the more familiar (?) series. You will notice many question marks against the original artists & issues and this is because the original record hasn't been checked to find the source; The American issues can be derived from Gennett or Vocalion.
