This was a pre-WWI Beka product, pressed in Germany (where it was marketed under the name of "Veni-Vidi-Vici"). The record's feature was two titles each side, rather like the later "4 in 1" disc. Unlike "4 in 1", though, Encore still only played for the normal 3 minutes or so, so each title was only about half as long as usual. I don't think may were issued and there are two series known. No. 551 turns up regularly, and I've never seen any others!

 

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.
