Thanks to Patrick from The Hague ( The Netherlands) I can show you some labels of the Belgian flexible DISCOLUX label, released by Phonedibel. They were found including a Phonedibel sleeve. They must have been recorded ca. 1930. They are made of white Rhodoid or Rhodoid-like acetate, as used in the well known Goodson record.
Can someone help me to date these rare transparent flexible 78rpm records?

CANZONETTA (Ambrosio) - 5.699

Solo de Violon

Nº du Disque 254

Recorded ca. 1930

LARGO (Haendel) - 12.088
Orgue et Orchestre à Cordes
Nº du Disque 254
Recorded ca. 1930
LA FILLE DU TAMBOUR-MAJOR (J. Offenbach) Ouverture I - 50.812
Orchestre Direction: FICHEFET
Nº du disque DF 516

LA FILLE DU TAMBOUR-MAJOR (J. Offenbach) Ouverture II - 50.812
Orchestre Direction: FICHEFET
Nº du disque DF 516
Recorded ca. 1930

Sleeve: Editions Phonedibel

The Dutch / Flemish instructions how to play the record
French instructions to play the record

translation: If you use an ordinary needle, use it ONCE on an ordinary shellac record. Then you can use the needle, without changing it, ten up to fifteen times on our flexible records.

The record was sold in Mme Vve BLANPAR Disque Incassable ( Paris ) according a stamp on the sleeve.
Thanks to Patrick van Griethuysen for sending me these records.
Hope you can help me to find more discographical details, like recording dates ..........

Leuk deze labels te zien.
Maar??? zit er kleur verschil tussen de labels? zoals de foto's (Disc 516) op de site laat zien.?
Of te wel welke is echt van kleur?

Bedankt Ron voor je commentaar. Ik heb 516 opnieuw ingescand en geplaatst, maar hij blijft wat paarsachtig. De labels zijn zwart en de plaat zelf is roomwit - Goodson - wit - een mooi kleurtje om de kamer mee te behangen!!

Je kunt me direct mailen op keepswinging at live point nl

"Le Jazz en France" lists a few records on this and related labels (Fotosonor, Choudens) as recorded in late 1931 and early 1932, with matrices in a 50000 series. I have not yet identified the other matrix series, but I suspect they may be of German origin (5000 = Kalliope, 12000 = Artiphon ?)
