An extremely scarce label from the Vocalion stable from the early 1920s. Note the similarity in design to the equally rare "Adelphi" label, also from Vocalion which dates from later in the 1920s. It is not know the proprietor for Adelphi Records yet, but Cymot records are most likley to have been made for export to South Africa to be sold by Cymot Ltd of Cape Town (who took their name from The Cycle and Motor Trade Supply Company).
Most of those listed below were found in South Africa, which lends weight to this theory.

Please e-mail me with details of ANY of these records.
My thanks to Rainer Lotz for this label scan.

Please e-mail me if you have any additions or corrections to this page.
The following have provided information:
Norman Field, Rainer Lotz, Steve Walker

Only a handful Cymot records have been located to date, with quite a variance in numbers implying that there could have been many issued!
