Levy's of 139 Whitechapel High Street, London were famous amongst jazz record collectors for making many rare American Jazz item available both through their own labels and their importing service.

There were two Levaphone series, the first ran from A-101 to A-103 issuing items from American Vocalion (see first scan); the second in an L-101 series issued American Pathe material (but seemed to concentrate on Cliff Edwards recordings) (second image).

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.

Thanks to the following for extra information: Ray Mitchell.
