Bell & Arto Records

Subtitle or Edition: 
A History & Discography, 1920-28
Annotation: 

Arto and Bell can be some of the most daunting labels to research. The frequent absence of any matrix markings, and the use of specially commissioned recordings or other companies' alternate takes (and even outright rejects) have tripped up many discographers over the years. The discography identifies the original source recordings (including those from such obscure sources as Critona and Olympic), as well as exclusive commissioned recordings. It includes: Originating studios, Master and take numbers if fully confirmed, Release dates, Recording dates and locations (actual if from primary-source materials, estimated if not), Artist pseudonyms and label errors, Composer and show credits, Medley contents and interpolated songs, Artist and title indexes.
