ARLD shows 3 addresses but says they're all the same company, proprietor
Charlie Mack. Box 199-B, Gracie Stn NY in 1955; 20-43 19th St, Long Island City
NY in 1956; 6300 Craner Ave, N. Hollywood CA, 1960. The only listing for
"Lenox" is as a division of Remington Records in 1949-50, but the ARLD only
goes up to 1960..if it's a later label, it wouldn't be shown.
