I remember Remmington as a low budget priced label that we sold for a dollar
or two. I really don't remember much else about them. as you know, this was
many years ago.
If my memory is correct, the Vox materials were all public domain
At The Record Hunter in those days, we carried every title in print on every
label just like Music Hunter does now. With so many labels, it's hard to
remember those details after so many years.
