Redwing

Home Page  Records British Dance Bands Sound Files Contact Me
A pretty obscure label, Redwing was produced by British Homophone, using matrices also issued on Sterno. The label was presumably made for a shop or store, but I don't know which one, if so. The catalogue numbers are in an R-1000 series, the extent of which is also unknown to me at present, but the highest noted in Rust & Forbes' "British Dance Bands on Record" is R-1020, but I believe the series does run a little beyond that.

 

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.
Thanks to the following for providing extra information: Greg Butler, Bill Dean-Myatt, Mick James, Colin Mackenzie.
