Rex Hollywood

Rex Hollywood (U.S.A.) / c. 1948

Design: The skyscraper image is perhaps more evocative of New York City than California's Hollywood.

History: Thanks for updated info to collector Dave Dixon of Canada, who writes that the 'Rex Hollywood' label was not part of the Asch group [as previously suggested, noting the design similarities with the Disc Asch Recordings label], but emanated from a Los Angeles record store owner offering bootlegged recordings (see also the Metro Hollywood label) in 1948 or 1949.
