I need some help dating Vocalions for a discography I am
compiling of acoustic chamber music sets. I posted the entire
discography last year and am resuming perfecting it. Here
are all the Vocalion sets. I suppose the abridged recordings
mosty pre-date the unabridged ones. Any information on
string quartet personnel would also be greatly appreciated.

Frank,

The only help I can offer you are the recordings you have matrix
numbers for. I assume all of these recordings are from British
Vocalion. My approximate dates are from Barr's book 2nd edition.

(Note: Yes this is the early electric era but Vocalion's last
acoustics end in August26 around matrix #4550. Remember not all
companies converted to electrical until the very early 30's.)
