In March 1949, this Harmony record briefly appeared, issued by The Mayfair Record Company of 45, Dorset St, Baker St. London, which included recordings by Jimmy McPartland's Orchestra, Billy Ternant & his Orchestra and a very young Frankie Howerd. The records cost 5/9 and were pressed by Decca.

I suspect the ACP (or CP) matrix numbers are a continuation of Crystalate's CP- series for private recordings, which they started in the 1920s, but were continued by Decca after they took over Crystalate's record division in the late 1930s.

Thanks to Graham Farnell, Bill Dean-Myatt & Justin Macauley for helping with this listing.
