This Billie Holiday Conqueror would seem to be a release of the 1938
Voc/Ok 4126 recording,
In addition to country (Acuff etc,) the Conqueror 9000 series
included Guy Lombardo, Sammy Kaye, Slim and Slam, Chick Bullock, most
common;y only one side of the major issue.
In one case - Conqueror c 9179, "Hold Tight!", Sidney Bechet
a h O, the label states - at 9 o'clock "Distributed in the U. S. A.
by Brunswick Record Corp." and at 3 p'clock, " \Produced by Master
Records, Inc." The reverse "You're A Sweet Little Headache" by Dick
Barrie a h O, does not have such information - nor have I noticed it
I see nothing on the label that suggests where it was intended
to be distributed but some tiny writing is quite hard to read.,
