Varsity was one of producer Eli Oberstein's numerous operations. He seems
to have avoided royalty payments by altering tune titles on budget labels.

[ARSCLIST] Public Domain Recodings?
Dear ARSC folk-
I am curious if anyone out there has compiled an exhaustive,
semi-exhaustive (or just plain exhausting) list of PD recordings. As a
Latin music collector I have found certain tracks that have popped up
with differing names on "budget" labels like Varsity. I seem to recall a
thread from sometime ago that dealt with this question but I do not
remember anyone having a single database of all the music that fell into
Does such a thing exist or am I searching for Chimeras?
Please ping me off list so as not to bother the mainstream with what I
believe might be fairly described as arcana...
