Heart records were available for a
short period just prior to WWI, in 1913-14. They were pressed in Germany
using Dacapo masters and also had Dacapo catalogue numbers, in 10" and
12" size. The trade journal mentions, when announcing this new
lael, that there were 70 12" and 600 10" discs available.
They are extremely rare, possibly because of a court case in March 1914, where it was found that the manufacturer had neglected to past copyright stamps on some of the records, and were instructed to destroy all unstamped records.
The second design, which is ony known from this solitary image, is a label only, having been previously removed from the disc. Hence it is not known if this styke was a proper "pressed" record, or it this was a paste-over label. The design and colours are remarkably similar to early "Regal" records.
Thanks to Bill Dean-Myatt for the first image, and Norman Field for the second one.
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.
My thanks to
in providing most of the information for this page.
