The first couple of DM 78 albums, and a couple of singles, appeared on Keynote
before going over to Mercury, but it may be that Mercury owned the Keynote
label by that time and was continuing to use the name. I have the Dunbarton
Oaks Concerto first issue on Keynote. Didn't I read that one reason Mercury
acquired Keynote was to get their new pressing plant?

Vocals on Mercury from Czechoslovakia: Erna Sack (lots), Cantor Sholom Katz
(possibly only one twelve-inch disc)..no others come to mind at the moment.
(Note, these are 78s.)

Classical Czech stuff: the Shostakovich Trio Op. 67 with Oistrakh, Sadlo and
Shostakovich (which unfortunately wows in all American transfers)..issued on 78
and 33.
