A Phonycord Flexible sleeve (ca. 1930)
Max Della Mora from Italy pointed me to a 1930 flexible Phonycord Flexible record he found in his grandfathers house. It is one of those short lived cheap flexible records that were released early 1930s. It is made of colourfull clear blue plastic and due to the way its labels are printed, the reverse label is most of the time visible backwards. The early Phonycords were pressed in Germany and this one must have been for the local market. The Tegernsee is a lake and a city south of Munich (Germany) and from the band, die Kapelle, records are known, which were recorded in February and March 1929. Later ( December 1930) Phonycord pressed records in Great Britain for only 5 months before it definitely stopped its production.
Also Phonycord 53 ( yellow clear plastic) was credited to the Tegernseer Öberländler-Kapelle and has the tune Auf Geht's - Ländler-Potpourri (3568) recorded in Berlin, 1929. It is likely that both records were recorded at the same session. I don't have info about its reverse.
