Longophon 1069 - 2013


Longophon 1069

Thanks to Han Enderman I got two images of a Longophon record. They seem to be made from a stiff cardboard material,with a Durium-like surface. The side with the label don't contains music. The label is printed on the complete surface of the record - 1069 has one title (in German and in English)

The playing groove is on the reverse.
Thanks to Chris Zwarg this record can be dated early 1934, as another German version of that tune was recorded February 1934 - The Disney film The Three Little Pigs ( in which the Big Bad Wolf had an important role, was released the year before.

Longophon 2013


This is the other Longophon. It is also made from stiff cardboard material, with a Durium-like surface. The side with the label don't contains music. The label is printed on the complete surface of the record - 2013 has two tunes. The playing groove is on the reverse and the two tunes are split-up by a visual interval between the tunes.

Chris Zwarg dates this record to 1933, as another recording with this two tunes was recorded May 1933.

Thanks Han for sharing these rare labels and Chris for his additions..
