These were produced by Crystalate for Curwen's, the music publishing company, from 1917 to 1919. The masters were from Guardsman. They initially cost 2/-, rising to 2/6 in the autumn of 1918. The catalogue nubers ran from 100 or 101 up to about 276 (the highest found to date).

The initial release was intended to be labelled CORONET, but this was challenged by Pathe Freres, as it ws a Pathe registered name. We are told that all CORONET records were recalled and destroyed, but in reality they may never have been manufactered. Or were they, and will one eventually turn up?

 

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.
