Metropole

Home Page  Records British Dance Bands Sound Files Contact Me
First appearing in April 1928, Metropole records were 3/- each, but tended to have odd couplings such as a dance title on one side and a glee club on the other! The catalogue numbering started at 1001 and ran to over 1300 before being withdrawn.

Matrix numbers were initially in an M-1 series, not quite reaching M-99; these were all recorded by Parlophone at their Carlton Hill Studios. Subsequent masters, starting at 1000 (sometimes still with the M- prefix) were recorded at the Highbury Athenaeum and later the label just became an outlet (albeit an very expensive one) for Piccadilly masters, though to start with there were a number of occasions where the Metropole and Piccadilly recordings of the same popular numbers were by different artists. Metropole records were manufactured at The Mead Works in Hertford, which had previously been Parlophone's factory, prior to it being sold to Metropole Industries in 1928. Initially, some of the Parlophone staff remained working in the factory to assist the new Metropole companyand it may be noticed that early Metropoles look and feel very similar to Parlophones of the period.

Metropole also took part in a fund-raising campaign for private hospitals. A selection of records were made available for 2/6. There was a ballot and competitors have to estimate the popularity of the record on the list. The first winner (Major J Reynolds of Kelvedon, Essex) won 1000 (a lot of money in those days).

 

This is a fairly complete listing, based on information from Bill Lovell.   Please e-mail me if you can help me fill in any gaps.
