Homo-Baby

Home Page  Records British Dance Bands Sound Files Contact Me
Homo Baby 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 1926. However, the later dance records are believed to be directed by Bert Firman, and so are likely to be by a proper dance band.
Numbering started at 1 and ran for about 54 issues. The sides were suffixed -C and -D.
It is not currently known for whom they were made.

 

My thanks to Frank Andrews and the late Arthur Badrock in providing the information for this page.
Thanks also to the following for additional details:
Robert Girling, Mike Jones

There are still a few gaps and I would be very grateful for any help in filling them.
