Thread Name: Stinson Records Revisted
Subject: RE: Stinson Records Revisted
No less than ten years of doing business and Stinson Trading Company remains a distributor, not a record label proper.
The old 'Worker Joe' bootleg record label was revived for a new line of Soviet-American dubs; liner notes by Noel Meadow. It is his, and not Prosky or Harris, that is the first name to actually appear on a Stinson release, not counting the artists themselves and (Charlie) Stinson of course.
… Stinson Trading Company, New York, is releasing the first in a series of 10 disks taken from the Soviet film Girl From Leningrad. Sides are Red Army Nurses Arrive at the Front and Red Army Nurses' Song….”
