GUEST,Phil d'Conch Stinson Records Revisted (58* d) RE: Stinson Records Revisted 17 Jan 21


The only other pre-WWII candidate in the discography for Moe Asch's second record label is Huddie Leadbetter's Play Parties in Song and Dance. It's with the rarest of the rare Asch/Leadbetter releases.

Per Goldsmith and others, recorded May, 1941 and released in “Autumn, 1941.” I can't nail it down any closer yet, including the oft mention Walter Winchell review.

Otoh, neither could I dismiss it anything like The Lincoln Brigade release.

Upshot being, Asch Recordings will only exist for the calendar year 1942. Counter to urban legend, Asch label #2 will ramp up production throughout its lifetime with no government shellac ration to speak of.

In the same interval, Stinson Trading Co. will limit itself to distribution of the Soviet bootlegs & soundtrack dubs and so be entitled to even less of a shellac ration than Asch Recordings.

The Asch-Stinson shellac rationing narrative runs bass-ackwards to basic material requirements planning 101.
