Despite the upmarket-sounding name, the music on  Philharmonic records was of the usual popular fare. They appeared in 1913 and were around for about a year, with masters coming from Favorite in Germany. Catalogue numbers started at 1 and the highest so far known is 130.

 

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.
