Were record companies able to reissue older recordings during these bans?

I'm delving into that era heavily right now. Have been for months.
Your list looks pretty complete to me. That's quite a few hours of
work. If I run across any others in the future I'll try to remember to
Do you happen to have at hand the dates that each label settled with
the union? I know Decca settled early because they wanted to release
the "Oklahoma" Original Cast album. I read just yesterday that Decca's
first single release after the ban was PISTOL PACKIN' MAMA by Bing.
Evidently the Dexter recording was made before the ban. Was Columbia
the other label to settle early?
I'll never understand why Montreal and Toronto didn't take advantage
of the ban by recording current songs there. Even Mexico City. And
what about Honolulu?

For almost as many years as I've collected 78s I've been curious
records made during the AFM recording ban of 1942-44. While we'll
never know what the renegades like Oberstein did during that period,
records made by singers with acappella-accompaniment for the major

I've made a tentative list which I have pasted in below.
I've never seen any acappella records on Capitol and the only OKeh
been able to find is one by the Golden Gate Quartet, and I see that
list has a note on one of them indicating an August 1942 date.
I listed the Four Vagabonds on Bluebird as the dates indicate they
recorded during the ban. I finally found a copy of Rosie The Riveter

some kind of stringed instrument - I'm guessing a tiple. Years ago I
that somebody got by with that since the tiple was not recognized as
legitimate instrument by the union. I doubted the story at the time I
it, so perhaps I have finally found that one and proved it to be
Haven't heard the other sides, so I don't know about them.
Have also heard that Petrillo was singularly unhappy with this
called in other unions to stop their members; i.e.: Actor's Guild to
some singers, and IBEW to stop the recording engineers. If anybody
confirm or correct those items, I'd like to know about that, too.
Any additions/corrections/suggestions, let me know.
