Disco Pathe

Disco Pathé (Spain) / c. 1917

back next

Design: Slightly more decorative strapwork than seen on the more commonly encountered Pathé labels, with a different colour combination.

History: Founded in France in the 1890s; record production began in 1906. The early records were unconventional in that they played from the inside track outward (like a modern CD), played at 80 rpm rather than 78, and were a different size to the regular 7 or 10 inches. As time went on they became more orthodox. Label scan courtesy of music researcher and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
