GUEST,Phil d'Conch Stinson Records Revisted (58* d) RE: Stinson Records Revisted 10 Dec 20


In the 2016 lecture Matthew Barton wonders briefly if Eric Bernay's N.Y. Music Room record & bookstore dealt in the genuine Soviet pressings.

The answer is no. Prior to 1939 the store was known as “The Progressive.” It was one of the “other” Soviet facade outlets besides Bookniga mentioned above.

The exisitng store on 44th Street reopened not long after as the Music Store with naturalized Ukrainian-American citizen Bernay at the helm. And a Soviet front it undoubtedly remained throughout.

Bernay's Keynote Records A&R will be more than familiar to Asch, Commodore & Stinson collectors. Bernay certainly did reissue at least some of those same fugace Soviet N.Y. Fair American dubs on the Keynote label.
