SAVOY

Made in Australia

Miller [M] lists this label as being pressed by Vocalion in Melbourne, in a catalog series from 1000 to 1079 in 1929. There are no further details. Staunton [S] shows aan American Savoy label but there is no resemblaance of the label with the label shown here. 

I can't hep thinking that there may be some connection with the Starr and/or Sterno labels - look at he graphic gothic design of the label name, especially the S'. Maybe the labels were just designed by the same person. 

Here we go - using my recently acquired Sutton [S], the question is resolved. Sutton indicates that this is an extremely rare label, darwing on both Starr Piano Company (Gennett) and Crown Record Company masters. The label is unrelated to a later 1940s-1950s label commonly recording jazz and blues. 

Miller [J] lists recordings by Jan Rubini and His Symphonic Dance Orchestra, catalog 1030, Melbourne, October 1929; and Joe Watson and His Green Mill Orchestra, catalog 1041, Melbourne November 1929.
