John Bull

The John Bull record was a product of The English Record Company, formed the in Autumn of 1909. They started a new system for selling records, known as the Tally-man system. This involved sellng the records directly to the public using door-to-door agents.  The client would sign a contract to buy so many records over a set period, probably about 50 in a year, for a set price of 2/6 per record. For this they would get an ERCO gramophone loaned to them, which would become theirs at the end of the contract. (ERCO = English Record Company; I suspect this was a cheap rebadged continental-made machine, maybe from the Lindström factory).

The records were pressed in Germany by the Beka Record Company, which was taken over by Lindström in 1910. They had no catalogue numbers and were ordered by the face number which was the Beka matrix number.

In May 1911, the English Record Company failed, but a new company with the same name was started up almost immediately. The new company had an arrangement with Favorite Records to press their John Bull records in Linden, Germany.  Where possible they used the Favorite recordings of the same tunes and retained the Beka face numbers, but you will see the Favourite matrix numbers pressed into the records. Where Favorite didn't have a particular tune recorded, they often recorded it specifically for issue on John Bull, sometimes by the same artist(s) who had recorded the title for Beka.

In late 1911, the Favorite contract must have been cancelled as John Bull records began being pressed in England by The Disc Record Company, in Harrow, using the varied selection of masters which they held there, though there is a report that the DRC made new recordings for issue on John Bull. Some John Bulls are also reported to have been pressed by The Irolite Manufacturing Company in Hounslow, a company about which I know nothing. It was probably at this period that you find mastes from companies such as Dacapo and Bel Canto being used on John Bull records.

By 1913, there was a price war in the record industry with cheap popular records being sold at 1/6, later even down to 1/-. Obviously, the English Record Company couldn't compete with this with their 2/6 record contracts, even with the "free" gramophone as part od the deal. There is no sign that they tried reducing their prices and the company finally went out of business towards the end of 1913.

There are two series of John Bull which use numbers other than the Beka face numbers. One had a catalogue number starting at B-1, the other had face numbes starting at H-1 (sometimes these have the  same H number on both sides like a catalogue number). I have not managed to understand when or why these were produced. Both series use the same spread of company masters to be found on the other series, and as before different recordings (i.e. from different companies) can be found with the same B- or H- number. there are quite a few where the H- number is the only number known for a recording and the original matrix number cannot be seen or traced.

I've tried to
work out the sequence in which the different John Bulls were produced, based on published research, but I'm not convinced I have the full story yet. One issue in the past is that I think John Bull records were looked upon as less important than the labels from the recording companies, but in my opinion it is a mistake to dismiss such labels. As I mention above, there were recordings made specifically for John Bull, so there is something new to be found on them.

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 David Moore & Mike Langridge in providing most of the information for this page.
On rooting through the late Arthur Badrock's paperwork, it seems there were a number of people involved in helping David accumulating this data. Johnny Hobbs made his considerable "stock" of John Bull records available to David for him to copy the details, and Arthur Badrock also added information and typed up a draft listing of the label. Unfortunately, none of this had been published before; I have put it all on the site here.
