One day when I don't need it anymore, somebody can cut off my right foot and sell it for memorabilia because it still has Dr. Swink's signature all over it. He did a fine job and I wear it with pride. 😆

In 1922 Cameo Records was founded in New York City. They mainly featured dance music. Would form the labels of Lincoln Records (covered yesterday) and Romeo Records (in 1926) under their umbrella before being absorbed into what would eventually become the American Record Corporation, and later, part of Sony Music Entertainment. The lowest Cameo label I have found, from 1922...

Two days ago I couldn't find a picture of Sean Thomas with the 1985 Bengals and today I cannot find a picture of him with the 1985 Falcons.  To make up for the lack of pictures, here is a UPI wire story about Thomas the summer after he was drafted: https://www.upi.com/Archives/1985/07/24/Rookie-cornerback-Sean-Thomas-might-be-the-big-play-defensive/9441491025600/

Bell Records were also formed in 1920. They were a sister company to Arto, and both labels were released under the umbrella of the Standard Music Roll Company of Orange, New Jersey. They were gone by 1928. From 1920...

National Music Lovers Records was founded in 1920. They were a mail order label, selling eight records for $3.00. Their main focus was dance music, with opera, Irish tunes, and old time music making up the remainder of their catalog. They were defunct by 1928. From 1922...

This thread has also brought home the fact that pretty much all the POTUSes between Grant and McKinley were generic fat white guys that were damn near indistinguishible from one another.  In fact, I think they were all the same guy ... they just reshaped the facial hair to make everyone think it was a new guy ...

This will likely be the hardest single year for me. I know nothing for 1919 releases and just about the only new music I listen to is metal (and not Shinedown, Five Finger Death Punch or similar yacht rock ilk pretending to be metal; I am a 1%er metalhead - take the hardest you have heard and magnify it by 100). Since I will not post death metal albums (vulgarity, profanity, nudity, and all the finer forms of gory schlock) or most stoner/sludge metal albums (nudity, nudity, nudity), 2019 is as tough of a go as 1919.

 

The only appropriate album of this year (that has been released) that I feel isn't watered down garbage would be this stoner rock release. It isn't as good as their 2015 debut album, but it will have to do. From March 29th...

the-devil-and-the-almighty-blues-300x300

And because there are more vinyl records being pressed now than there has been any other time since 1980, a bonus...

R-13416209-1554704872-3782.jpeg.jpg

 

In 1919, the Baldwin Piano Company entered the record business by forming the Medallion Records label. The label only lasted a few short years and was gone by 1921. A 1919 release...

200px-MedallionRecordLabel.jpg

 

Panhellenion Records was formed in 1919 by Kiria Koulas. She was a Greek musician that had gained some fame in America by recording for Columbia. Her label would be the go to source for Greek music until her husband died in 1927 and the label folded...

180px-Pahellenion_Record.jpg

 

Grey Gull Records was was formed in Boston in 1919. Grey Gull started out as a premium record company, but within a few years had dropped their price (and quality) to the budget market and were being sold on racks in drug stores. (See the Wiki link for more on the history.) By 1934, they were dead and buried. From 1920...

My make up for not doing this for 1994. Nothing close to as good as that album, though. Even with it being a mailed in effort, this album was still better than most of the stuff on radio. Southern/stoner metal released on January 12, 2018...

R-11408482-1516207395-6703.jpeg.jpg

And (I am old fashioned and prefer a simple black vinyl record with whatever for a label, but I do think this record is pretty cool looking)...

R-11408482-1516552681-4132.jpeg.jpg

 

Awesome stoner/hard/blues rock album...

R-13416274-1553791751-2603.jpeg.jpg

And (officially a Germany/Europe release only, but this is the day of the internet sales, and it went worldwide)...

R-13416274-1558705674-2208.jpeg.jpg

 

A make up for 1990 (especially), 1992 (the EP), 1992 again (the LP), and 1995. August 24th, 2018...

R-12417847-1534877638-7502.jpeg.jpg

And (again, Europe gets the cool toys, even if it used the same digital mastering as the CD/downloads)...

R-12417847-1535806147-4954.jpeg.jpg

 

The only label I have for 1918 is the Compo Company of Canada. They weren't really a true label in the sense that they were issuing records with their own unique label, but just a parent company of Apex Records. They also were a Canadian distributor for smaller and independent labels, such as Okeh. Eventually they would distribute Warner Brothers and Decca. American Decca would eventually buy Compo in 1951. They would get absorbed into MCA when it bought Decca in 1970. They would become MCA Records (Canada) when MCA took over, and later evolve into Universal Music Canada. I don't think anything exists with a Compo label, and the internet has nothing to prove me wrong in this thought.
