ILCO

Home Page  Records British Dance Bands Sound Files Contact Me
A very colourful pre-WWI record, ILCO discs were pressed in Germany for I. Lange & Co. of Berlin using Bel-Canto masters and catalogued in a 5000 series. Lange went into liquidation in April 1912, so this wa a very short-lived label, probably available for just a few months in early 1912.

Although the label looks to be JLCO, the first letter is in fact an "I" with a "tag " at the bottom, hence ILCO. (I Lange Co.)

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: Zachary Cooper,
