Dixy

Home Page  Records British Dance Bands Sound Files Contact Me
Dixy was a 6" record produced by The Gramophone Company during the mid-1920s. All were acoustically recorded. The dance band items are all by an orchestra (i.e. no saxes or banjo) directed by George Byng, sounding very old-fashioned for 1925-6. Numbering started at 501-D and it is believed only 25 different ones were issued.
It is not currently known for whom they were made.

 

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 and the late Arthur Badrock in providing the information for this page.
