John Bull

The John Bull record, launched in the Autumn of 1909, was the product of The English Record Company which had been formed the previous year. They started a new system for selling records, known as the Tally-man system. This involved sellng the records directly to the public using door-to-door agents.  The client would sign a contract to buy so many records over a set period, probably about 50 in a year, for a set price of 2/6 per record. For this they would get an ERCO gramophone loaned to them, which would become theirs at the end of the contract. (ERCO = English Record COmpany.) ERCO gramophones were made in Germany for the English Record Company by Carl Lindström Ltd.

The trade press criticised this manner of selling records, saying that members of the public were being tricked into signing a contract, thinking they were getting an exclusive product for a special price. However, I suspect the English Record Company was tapping into a group of people who preferred to choose their records from a catalogue in the comfort of their own homes. Probably as a result of the criticism, the suppliers of John Bull records changed occasionally and it is quite difficult to work out who was pressing what and from which masters and in what sequence they were made. Even if one could see a John Bull catalogue (has anyone ever seen one recently?) it may not help as repressings of titles by different companies often kept the original face numbers.
To be honest, the only way to try and sort this out is to view many John Bull records and where the source recording is in doubt, to try and compare the recordings with those found on other labels.

So, based on much reading of articles (mainly by Frank Andrews), this is my current conclusion.   [May 28 2018].

At the beginning, the records were pressed in Germany by the Beka Record Company, which was taken over by Carl Lindström in 1910. They had no catalogue numbers and were ordered by the face number which was the Beka matrix number. This was usually in a 40000- series, which denoted British recordings, but many with lower numbers have been reported, though I don't have any of these myself and so cannot examine them.

In May 1911, the English Record Company failed, but a new company with the same name was started up almost immediately. The new company had an arrangement with Favorite Records to press their John Bull records in Linden, Germany. They retained the Beka face numbers, but you will see the Favorite matrix numbers (and face numbers) pressed into the records, and where possible they used the Favorite recordings of the same tunes.  Where Favorite didn't have a particular tune recorded, they often recorded it specifically for issue on John Bull, sometimes by the same artist(s) who had recorded the title for Beka.

In some articles, Frank says that Beka and Favorite were pressing John Bull records at the same time, from the start, but I doubt that to be the case.
Anyway, things get much more difficult to work out from this point.

Other John Bull records are pressed in Germany from Dacapo masters, presumably by Dacapo themselves. Other masters used are more difficult to recognise but I believe they are Bel Canto masters. In addition to the masters being in the right number range (5000-), the records usually have the letters BC embossed under the label, which I can only think means "Bel Canto" (though it has been mentioned it could stand for "Beka Company"). Bel Canto was one of those German recording companies who, while they did have their own "Bel Canto" label, generally seemed to sell their masters for other companies to use. Just fo confuse matters, I have at least one John Bull record with a genuine Beka master on one side and a "replacement" Bel Canto on the other. I doubt that this is an isolated case either.

Then, finally, many John Bull records state "British Manufacture Throughout" round the foot of the labels. Frank does mention that The Disc Record Company of Harrow may have pressed John Bull records, but if they did, they would have "Made In England" embossed in the clear area outside of the label, and I've not seen any of those. There are, of course, other possible British manufacturers, such as Crystalate and Carl Lindström's Mead Works in Hertford. However, the most likely candidate is The Inverness Works, Staines Road, Hounslow, Middlesex. This company had been manufacturing Musogram Records until 1909, at which point the English Record Company took over the factory, renaming it The Irolite Manufacturing Company, and most likely pressing John Bull records there. Frank Andrews says that there had been issues with getting enough John Bull records from the German suppliers, which was why they took on the Hounslow factory. One of the managers at the works was Sidney Taylor, previously a recording expert with the Neophone Record Company, but there is no proof he made any specific recordings in England for John Bull. The Irolite Factory stopped pressing records in December 1911 and the factory later passed to Columbia.

What makes this all complicated is the fact that the Beka master numbers (usually in a 40000 series) are retained on the label and shown embossed in the record (in "type") even when the record is now pressed from another recording. The only way to know for sure it IS the Beka master being used is if the master is also visible hand scribed in the record, usually under the label. Also I notice that Beka masters have other codes whitten into the "wax", often a '#' sign.

What is still to be resolved is the fact that some of the British manufactured John Bulls use masters which should only exist in Germany, such as early Beka and Bel Canto (if that's what they are) masters. However, Norman Field has a theory, which seems very likely. Many of these German companies, such as Dacapo, Favorite, Bel Canto all became part of the Carl Lindström group by about 1912. Lindström would then have found they had duplicate recordings of the same pieces of music so it would make sense for them to sell off the unwanted extra metalwork. The Disc Record Company in Harrow was one such which was pressing old Beka masters in Britain, which should have been in Germany, so maybe The Irolite Company had bought old masters from Lindström as well? (The timing of this needs to be checked as far as Irolite is concerned.)

1912 was a pivotal year for record companies. Carl Lindström Ltd started selling cheap records (at 1/6) in Britain from the spring (Coliseum & Scala) and later started buiding their own factory in Hertford. It is reported that the company was trying to push out any tally-man businesses in this way, but then they joined in the tally-man business in October 1912 with their own Albion Record label. I suspect selling these via the tally-man system was quite short lived, after which they became another cheap label, selling at 1/6 or even 1/- to undercut the competition. It is possible to find John Bull records overstuck with Albion labels.

By the end of 1912, the English Record Company was in financial difficulties and between then and July 1913  the company was gradually taken over by Grünbaum & Thomas, a German company who pressed Favorite (and maybe other?) records. The last John Bull record issued is beiieved to have been in September 1913, pressed by Favorite and still priced at 2/6. In November 1913, the English Record Company was sold to The Albion Record company for £1,000 and it seem likely that it was at this point they overstuck Albion labels onto existing John Bull record stock (see previous paragraph). I also have a John Bull (German manufactured) with Ariel labels pasted over.

There are two series of John Bull which use numbers other than the Beka face numbers. One had a catalogue number starting at B-1, the other had face numbers starting at H-1 (sometimes these have the  same H number on both sides like a catalogue number). I have not managed to understand when or why these were produced. Both series use the same spread of company masters to be found on the other series, and, as before, different recordings (i.e. from different companies) can be found with the same B- or H- number. there are quite a few where the H- number is the only number known for a recording and the original matrix number cannot be seen or traced. In addition to these, there are John Bulls with a 5000 series catalogue number.

I've tried to
work out the sequence in which the different John Bulls were produced, based on published research, but I'm not convinced I have the full story yet. One issue in the past is that I think John Bull records were looked upon as less important than the labels from the recording companies, but in my opinion it is a mistake to dismiss such labels. As I mention above, there were recordings made specifically for John Bull, so there is something unique to be found on some of them.

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 David Moore & Mike Langridge in providing most of the information that started this page.
On rooting through the late Arthur Badrock's paperwork, it seems there were a number of people involved in helping David accumulating this data. Johnny Hobbs made his considerable "stock" of John Bull records available to David for him to copy the details, and Arthur Badrock also added information and typed up a draft listing of the label. Unfortunately, none of this had been published before; I have put it all on the site here.
