GUEST,Phil d'Conch Stinson Records Revisted (58* d) RE: Stinson Records Revisted 13 Jul 21


The legal jousting over who owned what began before the ink was dry on the contracts:

Denies Reported Sale
An item in our July '46 issue, headed “Stinson Enlarges Disc Activities”, had reported that the Stinson Trading Co., New York City, had purchased the interests of Moe Asch.

A spokesman for Mr. Asch now advises that the Stinson Trading Co. did not purchase the interest of Moe Asch; also that Stinson Trading Co., has no right to use the Asch-Stinson label. Mr. Asch gave Herbert Harris and Irving Prosky, officers of Stinson, individually, a license to use the Asch-Stinson label until March 3, 1947, but the license is not transferable and its use is expressly restricted to certain specified recordings made on or before Dec. 3, 1945, the spokesman said.”
