This discography is a non-commercial labor-of-love and is in no way associated with any business firm.
All I know about the resp. artist's / label's musical output is shown on this page. To purchase out-of-print records I recommend an ebay, gemm or google search. And - sorry for that - I have not the time to answer any e-mails asking me about further information, let alone duplicating out-of-print recordings I happen to own.

"There was one change of company ownership in the late 'thirties. In February 1938 the Columbia Broadcasting System bought BRC-ARC. [...] In 1940, they changed the name of the expensive label from Brunswick to Columbia, and of the cheaper one from Vocalion to OKeh. All records after 5621 were put out as OKeh; some of the better-selling earlier records in the 2500 series - originally put out as Vocalion - were re-pressed as OKehs."
