Witton records date from 1928 when 6 records were issued; they were pressed by Edison Bell and were a 12" disc, costing 5/- each. Unsurprisingly, given the price, they are hard to find, and it is assumed they were made for Witton & Co, who sold gramophones & Pianos under this name.
All 7 known records are by the same singer. The sole issue in the W-5000 series has the same label design but with black printing rather than green.

My thanks to Bill Dean-Myatt for providing the label image.

Thanks to the following for providing details: Anton Bieber, John Banks, Richard Gregory, Norman Field, Robert Girling
