These labels were produced by the Jazz Appreciation Society of Newark, and seem to have been short-lived ventures.
The green-and-white label reissued some rare 1920s American jazz recordings originally from Paramount; the Red label is more recent jazz and the black-and-white label issued contemporary recordings, usually of New Orleans jazz.

Thanks to Bill Dean-Myatt for providing the label images, except the red label is from Robert Girling.

Thanks to Robert Girling for providing details for the listings for this label.
Thanks to the following for extra details: Richard Prout
