[78-L] Gennett recording files

Where did Gennett get masters for its 12" series of British military band recordings?  I have always wondered - the recording quality doesn't indicate one of the bigger British concerns, and the bands certainly did not come to the US in the early 1920s.  PC

Thanks, Han.
Oops, I meant the 7500/7600 series, which was issued on the US Starr
and/or Gennett circle label c. 1915-1917. THOSE were Vertical! The 4500
series (c. 1918 - 1922) was lateral, as you say. That's what I get for
trying to write from memory!
Ge 4533 looks right for the last of the circle labels.
