ACO

Aeolian Company Ltd, Aeolian Hall, Bond Street, London. 
Labelled as: Vocalion Records, Middlesex. Made in England 
Represents the cheaper records from Aoelian. 
Period: November 1922 to August 1927. 
Music type: General ‘middle range', comedy, popular vocals. 
Source: American Vocalion and Gennett. 
C-5000 series were accoustically recorded; 
C-1-E were electrically recorded from 1926. There was also a G series. Rust indicates that it is not a common label. Its appeal to jazz collectors lies mostly in its sporadic issue of odd sides of the Original Memphis Five, The Mound City Blowers, Fletcher Henderson and His Orchestra, Hottentots, and Jeffries and His Rialto Orchestra. Sides by Irving Kaufman appear frequently under the sseudonym, Harry Topping. [R]
