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 trade mark was registered in January 1933 by Gallaghers Ltd, the Belfast cigarette manufacturer. It has not been found who sold the records, maybe they were exchanged for cigarette coupons?
From the "Public Performance is forbidden" wording around the foot of the label, the records must date from after March 1934.
The catalogue numbers started at R-1000, and the highest traced and shown in my listing is R-1023.

 

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, Lee Martin.
