CETRA

Made in Australia. Distributed by Minstrel Records Co.

I can find very little on this label. Miller [M] notes that ‘more data sought', and notes that they were around in Australia in the 1950s, with catalog nubers from DC-100 onward, but here we have DC-31. He also notes that the pressings were of ethnic recordings. We could assume that the label was only Australian, but I have also a Cetra label Made in Italy. Could it be that the label is indeed Utalian, and the Australian pressing, which could indeed have been made in Italy, was for the Australian market only. After all, there was a large population of Italians in Australia during the prime immigration time of the 1950s.
