Does anyone have record of the matrix numbers for the Beka (Parlophon)-B49230? I have an Odeon export record (Numbered A 161277) which has the exact same two titles on it as B49230; but, both credited as Odeon instead of Parlophon orchestras. I wonder if it could be the same record!
Hello, Alex

Bare in mind that Beka, Parlophon, Gloria and Odeon (and some other) labels all belonged to the same company: Carl Lindström. As it was customary at the time, when an orchestra wasn't credited on the record label, it was usually named after the record label itself: Odeon-Orchester, Parlophon-Orchester, Beka-Orchester, Gloria-Orchester etc. So, depending on the label a recording was published under, an orchestra could have had several different names (pseudonyms).

As for the Parlophon B 49230, the matrix numbers are Bi 1693 and Bi 1546 (both are Gloria-numbers; Bi = Gloria, Be = Odeon). The Bi 1546 track was, as mentioned earlier, performed by the band of SS-Standarte 42 and Bi 1693 was performed by the so-called "Eric Harden's Dance Band" ("Eric Harden" was a pseudonym that the Lindström company used for various dance band artists).

Cheers,
Ivan

Hello Ivan,

Wonderful to hear from you.

I'm aware of the different label's connection to the larger Carl Lindström company thanks to some wonderful information you've already provided to me at an earlier time, and this is why I am curious about it in the first place. Even after more than 5 years collecting, though, I'm still leaning all the little pseudonyms and still don't have the best grip on all the different performers and artists, I'm learning a little at a time, though-almost always due to your help.

I am excited to report then, that it is indeed the same record! How interesting! Some scans coming soon to the 78rpm reviews page!

Thanks for the advice as always, Ivan.

Regards
Alex

Do you fellows have any information on releases from 42. SS-Standarte on Columbia? This may have been produced in Japan as there are some Japanese characters on it. I just won it at auction so I can't get better label photos for a couple of weeks.

I think the numbers are 12391 B and J 2851 on this side (the other side is near unreadable in the photo)

Thank you for the information. I just hope it makes the journey safely. I get a lot of records from Japan but this will be the first 78. I am a bit anxious about it. If it does break it will be suck but not too bad on the pocketbook, it was only ¥999 (aprox. $9.20).
