(UK) VOCALION 78 rpm
1951-1954

     This is a previously published list, originally compiled by Paul Pelletier in the 1970s, here updated. Decca dusted off the old Vocalion trademark to issue this series of 'classic' Jazz, Blues & Gospel, then put Vocalion back to sleep for a few years until 1963 when it was revived again to replace the Vogue label name, which had been reclaimed by its French owners. All the material listed here derives from the American labels Decca, Brunswick and Vocalion. In the unlikely event of having some spare time, the matrixes and source labels will be added (they are currently incomplete).
     Any additional information is welcome.
