Zolophone Record [Hits: 10099]  Discuss on forum [0]

The only known source of information about pirate label Zolophone Record is a small paragraph in the book of A.I.Zhelezny Our Friend a Record. The notes of a Collector. Following is a quote:

There are cases of sort of mimicry under the original label that was used for copying. For instance, there are discs that nearly indistinguishable from Zonophone. Only close inspection will reveal the substitution of one of the letters in the label name: there is Zolophone instead of Zonophone. [A.I.Zhelezny, p. 89]

We can only add to said above that mimicry was not such a rarity at that time. Please take a look at the design of International Parlophon Record or one of version of Tonophone Record . But the most interesting, that mimicry was used not only piratical labels, but law-abiding too. Please take a look at the example of the earliest Aprelevkas plant label Luxophone Record . Most likely with mimicry they tried to achieve high sales of the young and unknown factory remember Panasonix and Soby. But when the factory by quality of its production built up its own reputation, it abandoned it and designed its own unique label .
