ECLIPSE

Made in England for Woolworths stores. .

Eight-inch record.

Ther red label is the standard record whilst the blue, with catalog prefixed SC, is a ‘celebrity series' issue - Field [F] suggests that the SC may have stood for ‘sacred' as there were a number of popular hymns on the label, but doubts it, as he, like myself, have releases which are certainly not sacred.  

Field also indicates that there was a red label with a black overprint of the word ‘Eclipse'. The Eclipse label lasted till 1935 - not sure when it started - and that over 1000 different records were rleased in five years. Does that suggest the label lasted five years? Field also notes that the label sometimes carried different versions of the same song and artist. 

The records sold for two and a half pence.
