LINCOLN

The Lincoln Record Corporation, N.Y. [USA]

Lincoln was a subsidiary of the Cameo Record Corporation of New York (qv). They were first released in January 1924. Numbering started from 2000 and reached 3400 before the formation of the American Record Company linked Banner, Cameo, Pathe and their subsidiaries and affiliates, the company deciding that Lincoln was expendable, in 1930. Many Cameo titles were issued also on Lincoln under many pseudonyms. From Rust [R], ‘The label aimed mainly at the market that was not interested in who was playing or singing as long as the all-important tune was theere and it could be danced to, or listened to without inexpensive pleasure. The records costs 50 cents.
