Re: [ARSCLIST] Early Polydor electrics, the depression, etc

See Tim Brooks/Rust's Columbia matrix listings. Some are WE, most, issued on Harmony are without. I can't give you the exact dates at the moment.

I have no documentation to prove it but feel certain that the reason
Columbia made paralell recordings acoustically to their electrics, the
former issued on Harmony, was to cater to the old wind-up market.

----- I have always thought that when Frank Andrews in his discography of 10"
English Columbia records speaks about "electrical re-recording" in 1925 he
means taking the acoustic record, playing it and creating a new electrically
recorded master, while retaining the old catalogue number. So I never
thought that they were making parallel recordings

----- someone with a better collection than mine (or better finding aids) may
be able to confirm this - there is a chance of a change in the background
noise at the beginning of the electrical one (if in pristine condition)

----- on the other hand, I would prefer positive proof that parallel sessions
were used.

Kind regards,
