It was issued by A.F.R. Lawrence The "R" was for "records"  Greg Benko was
involved I believe, so he may be the "G".  Perhaps he'll remember.  I no
longer do.

I believe GNR were the iitials of whoever produced the label. I'm not sure I
ever saw another release on that label.

excavating for old classical records,I have found maybe a dozen of such
discs,that are basically classical bootleg records.This one is a recording I
had not seen,but was not surprised was out there.This is Josef Hofmann and
an unidentified orchestra doing the Anton Rubenstein Piano Concerto #3 Opus
45.I am guessing this dates from the 1940s,about the same time as his
Rubenstein #4,that has been issued many times.There is no orchestra or date
given.Anyone have a clue?The "label" is GNR.Any idea what GNR stands
for?Certainly not Guns N Roses.
